SO AOC went to a $35,000/plate dinner

Doing what dems do best schmoozing with the rich. Who paid for her ticket? Did she? She said she was invited because she is a powerful elected representative. Invited by whom? Isn't there some law about gifts to elected representatives? Who paid for her to be there? She needs to learn from crackhead Hunter and just sell some figure paint water colors. 10% for the big guy of course.

I hope there was a $20 gift bag with that dinner - like maybe a F... Joe Biden lapel pin.

Dang rich liberal elitist hypocrats.

Jared and Ivanka didn't get the invite.

They're calling the World Bingo Championships at the Miccosuccee Casino and Resort.

Funny how when you encourage genocide in your old home town the social opportunities suffer.

So then you don't know who paid for her ticket?

The dress designer, I'd imagine.

Local shop.

Well, out of Queens.

Hey Turdy- you folks staying safe over there in the pustulent bunghole of the Hoosier State?

I here there are some real smart folks over there.

Representatives are not allowed to receive such expensive gifts.

Look closely at the photos from AOC’s gala event.

Beyond the $35K/plate spectacle, do note how none of the elites are wearing their Covid masks, while every one of the surrounding hourly servants, attendants, and photographers are all dutifully complying with their employer prescribed mask mandates. That is the real story here.

[File under: Recent poll finds that 92% America’s wealthy support mask mandates for other people.]

salary is about 175k

You all know the the laws don't apply to these people.  Her previous job was a bartender.

 

Many members of Congress retain their private careers and other business interests while they serve. Members are allowed an amount of permissible "outside earned income" limited to no more than 15% of the annual rate of basic pay for level II of the Executive Schedule for federal employees, or $28,845.00 a year in 2018.5 However, there is currently no limit on the amount of non-salary income members can retain from their investments, corporate dividends or profits.

 

House and Senate rules define what sources of "outside earned income" are permissible. For example, House Rule XXV (112th Congress) limits permissible outside income to "salaries, fees, and other amounts received or to be received as compensation for personal services actually rendered." Members are not allowed to retain compensation arising from fiduciary relationships, except for medical practices. Members are also barred from accepting honoraria - payments for professional services typically provided without charge.

 

Perhaps most importantly to voters and taxpayers, member of Congress are strictly prohibited from earning or accepting income that may appear to be intended to influence the way they vote on legislation.
