Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is under investigation by the House Ethics Committee, according to a Wednesday statement by the panel that did not give a reason for the probe.

  • Multiple news outlets suggested the investigation could stem from a complaint about Ocasio-Cortez attending the 2021 Met Gala without paying for her $35,000 ticket.
  •  “The congresswoman has always taken ethics incredibly seriously, refusing any donations from lobbyists, corporations or other special interests,” the democratic socialist’s spokesperson said. “We are confident that this matter will be dismissed.”
