Ocasio-Cortez Caught Hiding Income

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) spokeswoman has openly admitted that she is breaching the congressional financial disclosure rules.

Ocasio-Cortez who was supposed to report her 2021 finances to the House Ethics committee on Aug. 13 has not yet done so. Eleven days later and the public does not have a clear idea of Ocasio-Cortez’s financial status. According to her spokeswoman, Ocasio- Cortez is not in any hurry to disclose the information that is required by federal law, as she has another 20 days before she is bound to incur any fines.

This is because of the 30-day grace period provided by the committee according to Ocasio-Cortez communications director Lauren Hitt.

Ocasio-Cortez in April noted that American democracy is undermined when lawmakers are even remotely perceived to have improperly acted regarding their finances.

Right now, almost all the members of the House have filed their 2021 financial disclosures as required by federal law. These are also made publicly available through the House Clerk’s website.

Ocasio-Cortez is one of 10 members who have so far failed to file their 2021 financial disclosures. Other notable members include Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) and outgoing Rep. Peter Meijer (R-MI) who have also not yet submitted theirs.

If the 30-day grace period passes, Ocasio-Cortez will be required to pay a $200 fine, which is relatively minor.

In 2019, Ocasio Cortez filed her financial disclosure exactly at the end of the 30 days, narrowly avoiding a House Ethics Committee fine.

Some are calling her a repeat offender due to this.
