Well, it appears the Democrats favorite Anti-Semite, Rep. Ilhan Omar is now under investigation for the misuse of campaign funds to pay for….. her divorce.
This investigation began after Republican state Rep. Steve Drazkowski stated that the Muslim representative accused her of not only using the funds for her divorce but also travel and her attorney.
In referring Omar to the Minnesota Campaign Finance Board, Drazkowski alleged that Omar improperly spent close to $6,000 in campaign funds for personal use, including payments to her divorce attorney and for travel to Boston and Estonia. Drazkowski’s filing of the two complaints followed an earlier episode in which Omar repaid $2,500 for honoraria she received for speeches at colleges that receive state funding, a violation of ethics rules for Minnesota lawmakers.
“I had observed a long pattern,” Drazkowski told Sinclair in an interview from his office in southeastern Minnesota. “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.”
Approached by Sinclair as she left the Capitol on March 28, accompanied by an aide, Omar refused to answer any questions about the campaign finance allegations. The aide suggested Sinclair try to schedule an interview instead. When Sinclair contacted Omar spokesman Jeremy Slevin for that purpose, he directed that the inquiry be routed to his personal email account; an inquiry subsequently sent to that account produced no reply from Slevin. The Minnesota campaign finance board, following standard practice, declined to confirm or deny whether it has opened an investigation into the subject of any complaint.
Within weeks of her ascension to Congress, Omar swiftly became one of the most controversial figures in Washington, following a series of comments she made about Israel and its supporters that were widely condemned as anti-Semitic. Omar then issued a barbed apology on Twitter, as the furor over her remarks led House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calf., to stage a floor vote condemning bigotry in broad terms, without specific reference to Omar.
Campaigning in Minnesota’s staunchly blue 5th District, which includes the city of Minneapolis and has sent a Democrat to Washington every year since 1963, Omar defeated Republican challenger Jennifer Zielinksi with nearly 80 percent of the vote. Drazkowski complained that Omar’s gender and ethnicity — she is Muslim-American and an immigrant from Somalia — and her willingness to cast herself as a victim of discrimination make her critics fearful of speaking out against her, whether on substantive policy or ethics issues. “There’s a political fear that people have,” Drazkowski said, “of being called a name, being called a bigot, being called racist, being called Islamophobic.”
Her biography says that she married Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in 2009 and got divorced in 2017. But, interestingly, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi has been accused of being her brother.
The way she naws on gum all the time and sprays when preaching… a DNA sample shouldn’t be hard… if true… what’s a more punishable offense? Incest or fraud?
