Posted on 04/01/2019 2:34:50 PM PDT by amorphous
WASHINGTON (SBG) - Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., the controversial freshman House Democrat, is soon to learn the results of a probe into her campaign spending as a state lawmaker in Minnesota, Sinclair has learned, with authorities there having recently completed their investigation and preparing to issue rulings in a pair of complaints Omar faces.
The complaints were filed last year, while Omar cruised to election to the House of Representatives, by a Republican state lawmaker, Rep. Steve Drazkowski. 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."

In her case when she gets probed she likes it.
Hope this is real
This ISIS witch needs to be removed from Congress.
R’s going after her and AOC will get a wink and a nod from the head fruitcakes of the dem party.
Well, you just cannot use campaign contributions to offset any misbehavior or crime. Makes sense to me.
>>In her case when she gets probed she likes it.<<
We know hew brother probed her. This should be as good, at least.
Didn’t her brother already probe her?
Fraud should be facing jail time...
well as Bruce Willis once said-”you better cowboy the _up”
we can no longer sleep during this Saracen Penetration
But she followed Sharia Law, so it’s perfectly legal < /sarc >
Is this a stoning penalty offense?
Lying, stealing, and violating infidel immigration laws is not a crime.
For an elected Democrat, anyway.
50 dollar fine...
Then, you talked like that on a forum where Biden could be peering in? He's on his way to see her with hugs, pats, sniffs and condolences over her stressful legal challenge. What a guy.
So what are the penalties? Repay the money and a page 9 story in the local paper? The penalties for corruption should be much harsher. Why bother with these campaign laws if they only jail the donors, and not the recipients? Seems totally backwards. But that’s Democrat lawmaking in action. Tell us how important it is, and then exempt themselves.
She’s probably frantically searching her purse and important papers file folders at home to find her “Get Out of Jail Free” card Obama gave to all the incoming new members of Congress.
That’s why he has his office within a short distance of the Trump White House, to stay in charge of things.
