FAST FIVE: Top Democrat Congresswoman Investigated For Alleged Ethics Violations Tied To Met Gala
Citing a witness testimony, the report said the congresswoman had specifically requested an invitation to the 2016 event.
“She went on about how much she does for the Met, always responsive when you call, and proactive re the institute's concerns in DC,” the email reads.
She received an invite that year and every year since then.
It also cited an email thread showing Maloney may have requested an invitation as recently as 2020, asking whether she was invited to the ball and how to contact a Met government affairs employee.
(Joshua Roberts/Reuters) Maloney, an outgoing New York Democrat, denied the allegation (pdf), saying the House Ethics Committee “has provided no concrete evidence” that she was actually requesting an invitation.
