A spokeswoman for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Tuesday acknowledged that the New York Democrat had failed to disclose her personal finances by the deadline.
Her communications director, Lauren Hitt, told the Washington Examiner that "[t]he committee provides a 30-day grace period before fines are levied. The congresswoman plans to file before the period expires." She is one of only 10 House members who have yet to submit their disclosures for 2021.
Ocasio-Cortez has until late September, when the thirty-day grace period ends, to file her disclosures and avoid a fine. The initial deadline was Aug. 13 and the fine in question a mere $200, per the outlet.
In her 2020 disclosure, AOC claimed to be worth between $3,000 and $45,000 and that she owned no stocks. She previously filed her 2019 disclosures exactly 30 days after the deadline, avoiding a fine, the Examiner reported.
