Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is facing ethics questions after revelations the freshman lawmaker’s office gave her boyfriend a congressional email account.

The democratic socialist waded into the issue in response to a tweet alleging boyfriend Riley Roberts had been put on staff. The tweet included a screenshot of an official House email address. Ocasio-Cortez insisted that he was only given the email account so he could access her calendar.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Actually this calendar designation is a permission so he can have access to my Google Calendar. Congressional spouses get Gcal access all the time,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote, after political consultant Luke Thompson tweeted the picture showing Roberts having an official account like other staffers on the Hill. “Next time check your facts before you tweet nonsense.”

Asked about the arrangement, David O’Boyle, the spokesperson for the Office of the Chief Administrative Officer, told Fox News: “From time to time, at the request of members, spouses and partners are provided House email accounts for the purposes of viewing the member’s calendar.”

But Jason Chaffetz, former chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said Ocasio-Cortez’ claims don’t stack up.

“It’s totally naïve and inappropriate – you wouldn’t allow it in most companies, let alone the House of Representatives. There should be real consequences,” Chaffetz told Fox News.

    Doesn’t surprise me one bit. She needs to be impeached from Congress, she is acting like she is a ranking senior member and every time she opens her mouth she shows how truly ignorant and immature she is and why she has no business representing anyone.

      I respectfully disagree on impeaching her. Let her stay, and let her speak, she will be the face and voice of the new Democrat party. She just lost 25,000 jobs in New York and that is probably the beginning.
      The rank and file Democrats will tire of this new party and switch, which will be a good thing for 2020, the rest of the loons that have entered the race for president will all speak the same nonsense and will not have a chance.
      MAGA and KAG!

    I worked for the govt and would never give my email address out or phone number. Congress or any high ranking govt member (Hillary Clinton, hint, hint) should know better. That is a poor excuse, needing access to one’s calendar. Before internet, ya picked up the phone or had your secy do it!!! Besides, AOC IS NOT married. Boyfriends or girlfriends should not have any privileges.

    Democrats who are really socialist showed their hand with that budget. They also showed that they’re willing to shut the American government down if they didn’t get their proposal that supports illegal aliens over American Democrat voters. In fact Americans. The bottom line is we know who they are it was at tempt to overthrow Trump because clearly Hillary was supposed to win and take control of our democracy turn it into socialism and take every right you know to be a freedom in this country. United we stand divided we fall. Why do you think Democrats who are really socialist call for fighting in the streets Americans must stand together and support President Trump these threats of what Democrat presidents can do with emergency powers is just that threats meant to scare the American voter . Stop letting them intimidate you. Stand behind President Trump build the wall that budget can be thrown out, . As soon as they are arrested or get on their private jets and run to another country for asylum. They are traitors to democracy. Why do you think they call for their constituents to fight. All this anger and shooting going on in this country is a product of Democrats pushing us to turn against each other . Why do you think they’ve turn to illegals they know Democratic voters have waking up and realize that they don’t have any representation. Therefore they’re using uneducated illegal immigrants. I am all for legal immigrants. I am not for socialist politicians disguised as Democrats bringing in illegal immigrants so they have somebody to vote for them. I’m proud of democratic supporters that realize that Democrats that are really socialist do not have their best interest at heart .
