She may seem to be so popular that even 2020 Democratic presidential candidates are following her socialist lead, however, not everything is going so well for New York’s Democratic freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Someone on Twitter outed her on something suspicious going on in her office. And it involves her boyfriend, web developer Riley Roberts.

“Actually this cal designation is a permission so he can have access to my Google Cal. Congressional spouses get Gcal access all the time,” Ocasio-Cortez replied. “Next time check your facts before you tweet nonsense.”

But perhaps she should have taken her own advice in regards to checking facts. Unless they got secretly married, Riley is not her spouse.

And the initial tweet about it wasn’t the only hit Ocasio-Cortez received on the matter. This little gem also showed up, which also put her response into question:

“Only U.S. House of Representative Members, Officers, Employees, Fellows, Interns, and Contractors who have received permission under the appropriate Hiring Authority are authorized users of the House’s electronic mail systems and resources.”

“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,” the spokesperson for the Office of the Chief Administrative Officer, David O’Boyle told Fox News in a statement.

But that explanation didn’t sit well with Fox News contributor and former chairman of the House Oversight Committee Jason Chaffetz.

“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 said.

“When I was in the House, my scheduler would forward my wife my schedule once a week. But you’re not allowed unfettered access. And he isn’t even her spouse,” Chaffetz said. “It should be referred to the ethics committee for further investigation.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti backed up the boss’s claim, reported Fox News. Chakrabarti reiterated that it was just about calendar access, adding the term “partners” to the defense, but again the claim was refuted by a Twitter user:

However, not everyone may believe what Chakrabarti says on the matter, due to a Green New Deal claim getting walked back.

And that isn’t all of the trouble for Ocasio-Cortez. Another tweet highlighted an additional aspect of the problem, one which directly contradicts Chakrabarti’s claim:

Interestingly, prior to Ocasio-Cortez being elected, Roberts was frequently “mistaken as being nothing more than a campaign volunteer to Ocasio-Cortez, since he was photographed often with her on the campaign trail,” Heavy wrote.

It remains to be seen what, if anything, will be done to investigate the matter or implement consequences if there is an ethics violation.

If it was a Republican member of Congress who was involved in something like this, you can bet the Democrats would be all over calling for an investigation and more.

As it stands, any calls for such a thing from the right will likely be brushed aside as partisan politics.

    The Democrat will wipe it off as nothing and say she is just learning the rules and no one said that was illegal. After all working as a bartender they didn’t have email accounts set up for employees probably and she could text him on her cellphone. At the House it looks more business like getting emails and internal so looks like you are really working. What are the other 2 Muslim women doing. All 3 seem to make their own rules and the media is eating it all up. They can’t wait for her to run for President.

    Absolutely nothing is going to happen to her. Democrats have their own rules which is do what ever you want.

    This silly twit little brain is too often found overriding her judgement and rational.We the people pay this nitwit $174,000.00 annually! To damn much for her none existent job experience, or even her people skills.In short she loud abrasive ignorant and self centered, so while those are necessary qualification to be a paid member of the Democratic party.They are an insult to all American citizens, and the values they cherish. Fire this twit she’s a long winding road of bullshit.None of which is good for the American taxpayers, who currently fund her wages!

      this guy of hers is along for a nice ride it seems although may be bumpy along the way. She is obviously not used to obeying laws and rules;they did not mean they were meant for her.just everyone else. They had better start thinking how to deal with this pea brain before she causes major trouble or harm.

      You are right on target. The media continue to keep her in the news almost every day (only highlighting her lack of knowledge). However, the liberal millenials love it and have made her their “mascot”. I don’t think she deserves our tax dollars that pay her salary. AOC needs to go back to college and take some additional courses and work her way up the ladder instead of starting at the top!

    AOC can do no wrong. She’s one of George Soros favorite little bitches, next to Hillary. Seems to be on same Crooked Path as Hillary too!
    AOC get out of our country, we don’t want you here.

    She’s the liberals darling and will get away with this and more in the future. Apparently she was a member of the “ Hillary Clinton” school of law breakers

    Thing will happen to any of these Marxist until the American people have had enough. Do you really understand why the founding fathers wrote the second amendment to protect us from the demonically evil tyrannical in government? The Democrat party has proved that is the exact yourself from the rules they want to be exempt and use those same against Republicans I don’t allow an thing will happen to any of these Marxist until the American people have had enough. Do you really understand why the founding fathers wrote the second amendment to protect us from the demonically evil tyrannical in government? The Democrat party has proved that as they exit yourself from the rules they want to be exempt and use those same against Republicans I don’t allow an exempt But go after them with every tooth and nail for the same things they exempt their self from

    How the hell did she actually get a boyfriend? There has to be a reason for him to latch onto this freak of nature! He is only looking for the inside track of politics, vertically not her? Another traitor? You bet!

    She needs booted out of Congress before she makes more of a fool of herself. If they don’t do anything to her then they’re asking for her to do more damage to the Democratic party.

      “…they’re asking for her to do more damage to the Democratic party.”

      Let her do more damage to the Sociocrats before dumping her. Never interfere with someone bent on destroying herself.

      The Democrats think they have the upper hand & power over the American People and can run right over us.
      Looks like they are gaining because I feel like I’ve been ran over and had my liberties & rights taking away from me. It’s only going to get worse as Democrats grab more power. This is no conspiracy theory, Democrats are the
      Totalitarian Dictator Party. If they get their power, we will have to get permission to fart!

    The boyfriend is a web developer. Remember the issues Congress had with Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her web guys??? Oh yeah, nothing came of that because democrats never suffer consequences for their actions.

    Congress is too weak to do anything about this. As long as she is on the dark side she will be given a free ride!
    DURTY POLITICS ON THE LEFT!
