The following article, FLASHBACK: AOC May Have Committed ‘Major Ethics Violation’ After Startling Discovery Uncovered, was first published on Flag And Cross.
New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s boyfriend, Riley Roberts, was found to have a government email address.
Her team was quick to say that Roberts was not a member of AOC’s staff, therefore he’s not earning a salary.
But something’s up.
You see, Roberts is actually listed in Alexandria’s staff directory.
Hey @AOC – A friend of mine who works in the House just sent me this screenshot of your staff directory from the internal congressional database.
Contrary to your denial, it lists your boyfriend as being on your staff. Care to explain why you appear to be lying? pic.twitter.com/My8ixAJyXC

Is this a “major ethics violation?”
Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk says, yup.
.@Aoc is having a tough week
She ran Amazon out of NYC killing 25,000 working class jobs for her constituents she pretends to fight for
She is accused (with strong evidence) of breaking ethics rules by hiring her boyfriend on staff
Green New Deal political joke of 2019

Wow – @AOC denies her boyfriend is on her staff and yet this official document lists him on your staff
Starting to look like a major ethics violation and you lied to cover it up. https://t.co/7QyMfm4y4b

Alexandria’s chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti openly supports a man who was an Hitler “ally.”
— Jack Posobiec (@JackPosobiec) February 10, 2019
More from Liberty Nation:
Saikat Chakrabarti is a highly motivated, smart guy. A Harvard grad, he founded a web tools company, Mockingbird. He is a founder of Justice Democrats, the PAC set up with The Young Turks’ Cenk Uygur, was instrumental in getting AOC elected, and is presently going through congressional training to learn how to become an effective chief of staff for the Dems’ golden girl.
Based on a recent clothing choice, Chakrabarti might justifiably be considered a Nazi sympathizer. But really? Well, yes. In his latest love-fest video for AOC, Chakrabarti is sporting a tee-shirt that features a portrait of Subhas Chandra Bose. Not familiar with this former Indian head of state? Here a few facts:
-Bose was an ally of Adolf Hitler and met with him personally in 1942.
-Bose founded the Free India Legion (FIL) made up of troops captured by Nazi Field Marshal Rommel’s Afrika Korps.
-The FIL swore an oath to Hitler and was under SS command.
-Bose teamed up with the Japanese in 1943.
-Bose was an admirer of the USSR and sought to implement its authoritarian practices in India.

At a press conference for Sunshine Movement, which is far-left, Alexandria compared her midterm election victory to the Civil Rights Movement.
There are no words to explain this ignorance. It would be funny if it was meant to be parody.
She also thought her win was comparable to the moon landing.
AOC: “This is not just about a clean new deal. This is about a new deal for the United States of America.”
“Because in every moment when our country has reached the depths of darkness, in every moment when we were at the brink, at the cusp of an abyss and we did not know if we would be capable of saving ourselves, we have. We’ve done it. We’ve dug deep and we’ve done what we thought was impossible.”
What an utterly ridiculous comparison to make.

Former Governor Mike Huckabee had some thoughts:
Ocasio-Cortez compares her election to moon landing. Huh? Big difference. Moon landing was LUNAR, not LOONEY; Moon landing done by ppl who knew what they were doing…those who elected someone who thought there were 3 branches of Congress did NOT. https://t.co/Kc3nvvByN3

Here’s another wild clip featuring the gaffe-prone Democrat Socialist:
Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: "We are the party of King, of Roosevelt, of the ones who went to the moon!"
#1. Going to the moon was not a Republican vs. Democrat thing.
#2. It happened under President Nixon, a Republican. pic.twitter.com/jmbv40ZTb5

AOC also needs everyone to know that “people are going to die” if something isn’t done about climate change.
People are going to die if we don’t start addressing climate change ASAP.
It’s not enough to think it’s “important.” We must make it urgent.
That’s why we need a Select Committee on a Green New Deal, & why fossil fuel-funded officials shouldn’t be writing climate change policy. https://t.co/bn6NloGlaY

Maybe Alexandria didn’t get the message that large outfits often falsify their data to make it seem as if things are worse than they are?
Ugh. It’s going to be a long two years covering this one.
Alexandria is apparently looking for attention, sending what was clearly a bold-faced lie on Twitter.
People keep giving me directions to the spouse and intern events instead of the ones for members of Congress

What’s the problem?
