“Pursuant to House Rule XI, clause 3(b)(8)(A), and Committee Rules 17A(b)(1)(A), 17A(c)(1), and 17A(j), the Acting Chairwoman and Acting Ranking Member of the Committee on Ethics have jointly decided to extend the matter regarding Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, which was transmitted to the Committee by the Office of Congressional Ethics on June 23, 2022,” it said in a statement.

he committee did not reveal what it is investigating Ocasio-Cortez for, in accordance with its rules.

Ocasio-Cortez’s fellow “Squad” members, Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar and Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib, have also faced ethics scrutiny. Omar hired her then-boyfriend and now-husband as a campaign vendor for her 2018 bid, possibly violating rules that prohibit members from using campaign funds for personal use. Tlaib paid herself a salary from campaign funds after being elected to Congress, in possible violation of the same rule.
