Slap on the Wrist: Islamic Rep Ilhan Omar fined for campaign finance violations

On Thursday, the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board ordered America-hating anti-Semitic Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar to personally pay a $500 civil fine to the state for violating campaign finance laws, Fox 9 reported.

The ultra-radical Democrat who likes to hold secret fundraisers with Islamic groups tied to terrorism must also reimburse her political campaign $3,469 for improperly-used campaign funds.

According to the Fox report:

Five times, Omar’s campaign improperly paid hotel or travel expenses for Omar to attend out-of-state events in 2017, the board found. In other cases, the board found Omar’s campaign had paid for Omar’s immigration records and two years of tax returns without justifying their benefit to her campaign.

Omar’s campaign account was tied to her successful 2016 bid for Minnesota House. She served one term before being elected to Congress in 2018.

The findings are a result of an investigation launched in July 2018 following complaints filed by state Rep. Steve Drazkowski, R-Mazeppa.

Michelle Malkin posted the main points in the board’s conclusion:

Omar said in an email that she would obey the order.  She is also required to refile a 2016 campaign finance report.

“I’m glad this process is complete and that the Campaign Finance Board has come to a resolution on this matter,” she said in a statement.

But it appears there may be more to the story:


Where’s the IRS on this?
