AOC wears a Tax The Rich dress at MetGala, where a ticket costs $30,000

Trump jr. wrote a strong message on twitter regarding AOC “tax the rich” dress:

What makes @AOC a bigger fraud: The “tax the rich” dress while she’s hanging out with a bunch of wealthy leftwing elites or the lack of masks after spending the past 18 months as one of the biggest authoritarian mask Karens in the country?

Thomas Jones, founder of the American Accountability Foundation, filed the complaint with the Office of Congressional Ethics on Tuesday calling for an investigation.

The focus of the complaint was not on the dress but on the self-described socialist’s attendance at the event.

“Specifically, we believe Representative Ocasio-Cortez has violated clause 5 of Rule XXV of the Rules of the House of Representatives (commonly known as the Gift Rule) by accepting admission to the Met Gala, an event whose per seat costs is reported to range from $35,000 to $50,000, without having a permissible exemption to allow the acceptance of the lavish gift,” he wrote of the big-ticket New York City fundraiser.

Although media accounts said Ocasio-Cortez was given a freebie, the complaint said, “If Representative Occasion-Cortez has used campaign funds to pay for this ticket, she has also violated FEC prohibitions on campaign funds being used for entertainment purposes.”
