Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is under fire for giving her web developer boyfriend Riley Roberts a congressional email account ‘so he can see her calendar’ but she insists she’s done nothing wrong.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is facing ethics questions after the revelation that the freshman lawmaker’s office gave her boyfriend a congressional email account.
Actually this cal designation is a permission so he can have access to my Google Cal. Congressional spouses get Gcal access all the time.
Next time check your facts before you tweet nonsense.

A conservative group that filed a complaint with the FEC alleging Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez‘s campaign may have illegally funneled thousands of dollars through an allied PAC to boyfriend Riley Roberts on Thursday lodged a fresh complaint with the Office of Congressional Ethics.
The new filing also concerns the famous congresswoman’s boyfriend, but focuses on his use of a congressional email account.
The Coolidge Reagan Foundation, a political nonprofit, alleges in the complaint that the New York Democratic lawmaker used her newly found congressional privileges in an unethical manner when she set up the House email address for Roberts.
“This Complaint alleges Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez improperly converted U.S. House resources to her non-official, personal use by obtaining an official ‘@mail.house.gov’ e-mail address for her boyfriend, despite the fact he was not employed by her congressional office,” reads a line from the complaint obtained by Fox News.
“Moreover, it appears she obtained the e-mail address for him by falsely designating him a ‘staff’ member.”
Attorneys for the foundation allege that Ocasio-Cortez violated restrictions on personal use of House services and equipment—as outlined in the House Ethics Manual. They maintain that the provision of an official House-based email address for Roberts is a violation of rules that prevent outside individuals from having an official account. More
Wow! Just like in Venezuela “the boss” can do whatever she wants. The problem is that a boyfriend is not a spouse. This liberal problem of redefining words to fit your argument has got to be stopped.
She’s learned Washington’s ways very quickly. And like the rest of her party, she’ll never be held accountable for anything.
