Seems that she has a number of unethical acts. But what will the Dims do, other than hope she goes away.



Rep. Ilhan Omar's (D-MN) private life has been the subject of some scrutiny before (fairly or unfairly), but a new discovery about Omar's tax returns has shifted focus on to the Minnesota legislator's complicated family situation, and whether her relationships may have led her and her now-husband to violate federal law.

Last week, a Minnesota campaign finance review board released a report detailing a months-long investigation into whether Omar violated Minnesota ethics laws. But, according to The Hill, the report also speculated that Omar and her husband, Ahmed Hirsi, filed joint tax returns in 2014 and 2015 while Omar was still legally married to another man.

Omar's fundraising did land her in some hot water. She was "ordered ... to repay her state House campaign committee nearly $3,500 in funds used in violation of law, as well as pay to the state a $500 civil penalty" for misusing or miscategorizing money that was supposed to go toward her campaign for Congress (including, allegedly, a nearly $3,000 payment to a divorce attorney).

But it's no doubt the other potential problems that could mean real trouble. According to the Associated Press, the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board mentioned that Omar's financial disclosures contained some irregularities, and although they aren't the ones to ultimately investigate and punish her for them, the board felt they were worth mentioning.

For instance, "Omar and her husband, Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi, filed joint tax returns for 2014 and 2015 — before they were actually married and while Omar was legally wed to another man," a practice that runs afoul of both Minnesota state law and federal tax law.

I’ll worry about Omar’s tax situation after the POTUS releases his tax information. Omar has an ethics board that will investigate and right any wrongs, the “king” on the other hand has his supporters trying to make America a monarchy again.
You beat me to this. You’re absolutely right. They’re worried about minor tax infractions now? Let’s see the taxes of dear leader and compare.
