The House Ethics Committee is investigating Carolyn Maloney, whose 30-year career in Congress is about to end after she lost a contentious primary
MANHATTAN, NEW YORK: US Rep Carolyn Maloney was snubbed off the Met Gala guest list and is now under investigation for asking for a ticket to the star-studded event. The gala is one of the most exclusive events in the world and often invites public officials in New York with several A-list celebrities. The Manhattan Democrat was not happy after being left off the guest list and is now under investigation for asking for a ticket.
Carolyn Maloney, 76, is under the microscope for allegedly soliciting a ticket to the annual Met Gala, run by the Metropolitan Museum's Costume Institute. The House Ethics Committee is investigating Maloney, whose 30-year career in Congress is about to end after she lost a contentious primary. Emily Rafferty, the Met's former president, wrote in an email to the museum's director, as reported by Daily Mail, "I received a call this past week from Carolyn. She is unhappy to say the least that she is not receiving an invitation to the Party of the Year." Rafferty wrote that the Democrat "went on about how much she does for the Met, always responsive when you call, and proactive re the institution's needs in DC. She has been coming to the party for years, and it is the one thing she cares about. For what it is worth, I highly recommend you include Carolyn, [then–New York City Comptroller] Scott Stringer and his wife in your 80 allotted spaces."
The report shared by the outlet details how Maloney accumulated $2.75 million in federal funding for the Met's benefit from 2003 to 2011. It also highlights a 2020 request for $4 billion in nonprofit assistance to museums including the Met related to COVID-19 relief, which was also led by Maloney. Besides, another e-mail from 2018 reads, "When she learned she would not be attaining [sic] that year's gala (2015) she actually pushed back. Carolyn made calls personally to [redacted] and even [redacted]. We have ultimately secured one seat for her each year."
