Step Aside AOC, We Have Your Replacement Right HERE

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez Caught in Ethics Scandal, Lists Fiancé as Spouse on House Forms

If you can believe it, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has been caught in yet another ethics scandal.

The Squad seems to be wracking these up as of late.

This time, it was AOC referring to her fiancé as her spouse in financial disclosure forms.

The Problem

AOC and her fiancé, Riley Roberts, are obviously not married.

Yet, AOC regularly refers to him as her spouse on forms, including her financial disclosure forms.

The House Ethics Manual specifically states that a “spouse” is defined as someone who you are married to, not just someone that you have lived with or have dated for a long time.

AOC’s spokesperson, Lauren Hitt, however, said the complete opposite.

When asked about the filing, she stated, “They are not legally married. House Ethics has commonly recognized the term ‘spouse’ to extend to long-term partners.”

So, what could happen to AOC here?

Technically, she could be fined up to $50,000 and be sent to prison for five years.

What will actually happen is nothing because nothing ever happens to corrupt politicians in this country, especially those being investigated by the House Ethics Committee.

AOC has had several ethics complaints filed against her, usually guilty, and they always make up excuses for her and send her on her way.

Just more proof that regardless of the letter after their name, these people always stick together to protect each other.

The reason being that most of them are breaking the law, they are just not stupid enough to get caught.
