AOC Failed to File Financial Disclosure Report

Andrew Kerr in the Washington Examiner reports that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) failed to file her financial disclosure report that was due on August 13. From the story:

“Not only is she an admitted scofflaw, she’s a repeat offender,” said Paul Kamenar, an attorney for the National Legal and Policy Center, a conservative ethics watchdog group. “One must wonder whether she also files her income tax returns past the deadlines.”


“Just like AOC did in 2020 when she filed her 2019 disclosure report 30 days late after the 90-day extension, she’s at it again, blowing off the deadline for filing her 2021 filing that was due on August 13,” Kamenar added.

Also from the article:

Kamenar suggested that Ocasio-Cortez could be delayed in filing her 2021 disclosure because of alleged ethical issues surrounding her appearance at the Met Gala in September 2021, during which she wore a designer dress that featured the phrase “Tax The Rich.”


The NLPC filed a complaint to the Office of Congressional Ethics in September 2021 alleging that Ocasio-Cortez accepted impermissible gifts related to the event, including the designer dress she wore, limo rides, and professional hairstylist expenses. Kamenar said lawmakers are required to disclose any gifts they received, legal or not, in their annual financial disclosure statements.
