New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has already availed several ethics complaints against her during her short 2 months on the job.
Ocasio-Cortez is well known to accuse other Republicans and Democrats “corrupt” while she enjoys a windfall after obtaining office and is now accused of receiving illegal campaign contributions, handing out favors and falsify information for her boyfriend, using office resources for personal and political campaigns.
Add to this she has on at least one occasion grossly violated ethics by threatening revenge against Donald Trump Jr. by using her office to legally harass him. It seems no action was taken against her for this.
I have noticed that Junior here has a habit of posting nonsense about me whenever the Mueller investigation heats up.
Please, keep it coming Jr – it’s definitely a “very, very large brain” idea to troll a member of a body that will have subpoena power in a month.
Have fun! https://t.co/oQ6MsdJYCk

So far, Ocasio-Cortez has refused to respond to the complaints.
The Daily Caller reported:
Two watchdog groups have filed ethics complaints against Ocasio-Cortez for misusing her resources as a congresswoman with the Office of Congressional Ethics, while another group filed a complaint with Federal Election Commission (FEC) alleging she and her chief of staff set up a million-dollar private slush fund. Ocasio-Cortez’s term officially began in January.
Ocasio-Cortez “improperly converted U.S. House resources to her non-official, personal use by obtaining an official ‘@mail.house.gov’ e-mail address for her boyfriend, despite the fact he was not employed by her congressional office,” the Coolidge-Reagan Foundation claimed in a complaint Thursday.
She also falsely designated her boyfriend, Riley Roberts, a “staff” member to help secure the address, the group noted. The Coolidge-Reagan Foundation’s website champions itself as a first amendment watchdog group that defends, protects and advances “liberty.”
The second complaint was filed by The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) Thursday and alleges Ocasio-Cortez’s political Instagram account contains direct links to her House Instagram account and includes a link for political contributions, alongside posts of official video footage on the House floor. The group claims these actions violate House ethics rules.
The three complaints came within days of each other. National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC), a conservative government watchdog, accused Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti Tuesday of illegally funneling money between political action committees (PACs) and private companies that were both controlled by Chakrabarti.
She never disclosed her control over the PAC, leaving open the possibility that they could face serious criminal charges if it is found that they intentionally withheld the ties from the FEC. Ocasio-Cortez’s office has not yet responded to TheDCNF’s request for comment about FACT’s complaint.
All of this and Ocasio-Cortez is considered by DNC Chairman Tom Perez as “the new face of the Democrat Party.”
It seems she is accelerated into the corruption other Democrats have spent years to achieve, so I would she is the perfect for that role.
Ad to this, she is scheming to push the Democratic Party into a Socialist Party.
Free college for all, free medical for all, guaranteed housing for all, guaranteed jobs for all, income equality, abortion on demand, and more regulations. No Democrat has stepped up to explained how this will be paid for except to tell us that the rich will have to pay more and more—up to 70%.
It’s amazing people actually believe rich people would stay in this country if they have to pay 70% taxes. No, they will create more tax shelters and leave for other countries!
