AOC Caught Up in Possible Ethics Scandal Regarding Her Marital Status

A recent report suggests that Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) may be embroiled in an ethics scandal related to her marital status.

The Free Beacon reported on Wednesday that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has referred to her fiancé Riley Roberts as her spouse in four separate forms filed with the House Ethics Committee in 2023.

Andrew Kerr, the author of the piece, noted that the committee defines a spouse as someone to whom you are legally married; this is reflected 161 times in the House Ethics Manual.

Here is a better look at one of the files:

Nevertheless, she declined to include any of his resources in her filings.Lauren Hitt, spokesperson for AOC, informed the Washington Free Beacon that AOC and Roberts are not legally married.This might explain why Hitt inaccurately stated that the Ethics Committee has recognized spouses to mean long-term partners.

It appears that the public is being led to believe that AOC and her team have made a mistake in filling out forms rather than attempting to cheat the system.

Kerr reports the findings came as result of AOC’s overseas travels and points out something interesting suggesting a strong conflict of interest on AOC’s part.

Four legal filings submitted to the House Ethics Committee pertaining to AOC’s overseas travels in 2022 and 2023 suggest the pair have been legally married at least since Jan. 13, 2023. If that is the case, the “Squad” member can no longer leverage the so-called boyfriend loophole to evade public disclosure of his finances.

But AOC apparently does not want the rules to apply to her.

Kerr’s analysis suggests that her lack of enthusiasm for closing the boyfriend loophole is likely due to a perceived hypocrisy.

Despite establishing herself as a champion of congressional ethics, AOC has no interest in closing this loophole.

The legislation she introduced in May to ban her colleagues and their spouses from trading stocks?

Doesn’t apply to Roberts if they remain unmarried. Convenient.

This opens up another question: what is AOC hiding?

Many people on social media reacted to AOC’s statement with humorous comments.
