Far-left Democratic Representative Ilhan Omar illegally spent thousands of dollars of campaign funds for personal use.
The state board of Minnesota is now taking action against Omar, forcing her to reimburse the $3500 that was used along with a $500 fine.
Check out what the Daily Caller reported:
Omar is also required to pay a civil penalty of $500 for using campaign funds to pay for her travel to a conference in Florida, where she received an honorarium for speaking.
Republican Minnesota state Rep. Steve Drazkowski filed the initial complaint in July 2018, alleging Omar’s campaign had paid attorneys $2,250 for services related to Omar’s 2017 marriage dissolution.
Drazkowski later amended his complaint to include the payments Omar’s campaign made for her personal travel.
While the state board did find that Omar’s campaign made improper expenditures, it did not find the $2,250 went toward Omar’s marriage dissolution.
“The 2016 payment of $2,250 from the Omar committee to the Kjellberg Law Office was not a payment for Rep. Omar’s subsequent marital dissolution,” the board said.
“The $2,250 payment was a reimbursement for two payments made by the Kjellberg Law Office. One payment of $750 was made to De Leon & Nestor, LLC for obtaining immigration records and one payment of $1,500 was made to Frederick & Rosen, Ltd. for services related to Mr. Hirsi’s and Rep. Omar’s filed joint tax returns of 2014 and 2015,” they continued.
According to the Gateway Pundit however, there may be more going on than what meets the eye:
But the investigation into Ilhan Omar and the findings released by the Minnesota Campaign Finance & Public Disclosure Board reveal something even more serious.
It appears Ilhan Omar may filed fraudulent federal and state tax returns.
Michelle Malkin immediately jumped into the fray and called Ilhan Omar out on her fraudulent marriage to her brother and how she filed joint tax returns with a man who she was not married to.
“Things that make you go hmmm: Read this closely and keep in mind that Ilhan Omar was legally married to Ahmed Elmi from 2009-2017 while also filing joint tax returns with Ahmed Hirsi in 2014 and 2015. Time to get federal IRS officials involved,” Malkin said.
“I posted the full Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board report on Shady Omar’s campaign finance violations here. Ilhan Omar has 10 days to respond to board on immigration/joint tax return-related expenses,” Malkin said.
It appears Ilhan Omar also married her own brother to defraud US immigration, yet there has been no investigation into this by the US government.
“I’m glad this process is complete and that the Campaign Finance Board has come to a resolution on this matter. We have been collaborative in this process and are glad the report showed that none of the money was used for personal use, as was initially alleged,” Omar said in a statement.
“In addition to complying with the Board’s findings, I plan on closing the account from my State House race and distributing the funds to organizations that help train first-time candidates to run for office—so that the next generation of candidates and their teams know how to adequately track and report campaign expenses. I also believe we need to dedicate more resources to our campaign finance agencies—and I look forward to supporting these efforts,” Omar continued.
