- Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., blamed a member of her staff for not paying the “several thousands of dollars’ worth of goods and services” for her attendance at the 2021 Met Gala.
- The House Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) opened an investigation into whether Ocasio-Cortez violated House rules by improperly accepting gifts at the Met Gala, but the congresswoman claimed she was unaware and proceeded to let a staff member take the blame.
- While speaking to investigators, Ocasio-Cortez said that she was unaware of unpaid expenses related to the dress she wore and stylists that helped her get ready for the Met Gala in 2021. “I just never, ever, ever would have allowed that to happen knowing what I have learned,” she said. “But I wasn’t privy to the invoices, wasn’t privy to the ones that had been sent.”
