PRESS RELEASE: Congressional Ethics Office findings about AOC

In 2021, the American Accountability Foundation filed a complaint and demanded that Representative Ocasio-Cortez be held accountable for her violation of congressional ethics for accepting a $35,000-a-ticket event at the Met Gala in New York City without paying. At a time when the trust in American institutions is dwindling, the American people deserve representatives who aren’t serving for themselves. We must demand they serve on behalf of their constituents. The Office of Congressional Ethics findings today makes it clear that Rep. Ocasio-Cortez must be held accountable. Doing so will be a step in restoring the public’s trust in our government.
