Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has certainly made a name for herself. In addition to her anti-Semitic and anti-Trump statements, a scandal is exploding and Omar is at the very center of it. These charges are serious.
Rep. Steve Drazkowski, a member of the Minnesota House of Representatives, filed campaign complaints against Omar last year while she was running for the U.S. House. According to reports, the Minnesota Campaign Finance Board is preparing to release their decision.
Omar has been accused of illegally spending campaign donations, including nearly $6,000 for personal use. This includes payments to her divorce attorney and trips to places such as Boston and Estonia.
“I had observed a long pattern. Representative Omar hasn’t followed the law. She’s repeatedly trampled on the laws of the state in a variety of areas, and gotten by with it,” said Rep. Drazkowski.
Now, we’re about to find out if the Minnesota Campaign Finance Board agrees with the accusations against Omar. If she’s found to have violated Minnesota law, this will be yet another controversy on top of others that have already stacked up.
President Trump himself called for her resignation after her anti-Semitic comments surfaced. “I think she should either resign from Congress or she should certainly resign from the House Foreign Affairs Committee,” Trump said recently.
