Since the day Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar was elected, it’s been nothing but a series of scandals, insensitive comments, and major missteps.
But Omar has still managed to skirt any kind of scrutiny from the mainstream media… not to mention Democratic leaders.
But Omar won’t be able to hide from her latest scandal… especially if the IRS has anything to say about it.
According to a report from The Daily Caller, Omar is under fire AGAIN for filing joint tax returns with a man she wasn’t married to!
According to the report, Omar and her current husband, Ahmed Hirsi, filed joint tax returns in 2014 and 2015 while Omar was married to another man, according to a report published earlier this week by the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board. Omar didn’t divorce her previous husband until 2017 and did not become married to Hirsi until 2018.
Omar was ordered by campaign finance officials to pay a fine of $3,500 over this incident and her misuse of thousands of dollars in campaign funds between the years 2016 and 2017.
This latest scheme by Omar is just the icing on the cake with her disastrous political career.
Just months into her tenure, Omar has caused an uproar for her views on Israel and her perceived use of anti-Semitic tropes to justify those views. Omar has claimed that U.S. support for Israel is “all about the Benjamins,” and supports a movement to boycott the Jewish state.
And while Omar has been able to avoid any major scrutiny by the mainstream media, outlets in her home state of Minnesota are finally calling for her job.
The Minnesota Star Tribune’s editorial board blasted Omar Tuesday over the tax situation, as well as for her other scrutinized comments.
“Omar’s political rise has been marred by a series of unforced errors, including intemperate remarks and tweets earlier this year that were widely perceived as anti-Semitic,” the board wrote. ”Every month seems to bring a fresh problem.”
