    A father and daughter are convicted at Trial for Involvement in $100 Million Fraudulent Tax Refund Scheme. Kenneth Edmonson and his daughter Danielle claimed that the government owed them $175 million in tax refunds.

    Rep. Ilhan Omar dodged questions on Thursday about her alleged affair with a DC political consultant who’s on her payroll. The freshman Democratic congresswoman appeared ahead of a scheduled event at the University of Minnesota when a Post reporter asked her about claims she broke up the marriage of Tim and Beth Mynett. But instead of answering, Omar nervously made a beeline to make small talk with a police officer ... Omar has paid Tim Mynett’s E Street Group consulting firm $230,000 since 2018 — raising concerns of potential ethics violations.

Judicial Watch obtained the documents through a June 2018 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against the State Department after it failed to respond to a February 2018 request seeking records of the Obama State Department’s...

    My column two weeks ago on Ilhan Omar’s Marriage Fraud Immunity Card mentioned the Minnesota state investigation of her use of campaign funds for personal expenses related to her divorce, plus other spending for out-of-state travel. The report was released today on her shady spending practices in response to Minnesota state Rep. Steve Drazkowski’s complaints last year. She has been ordered to pay about $4,000 in reimbursements & fines, plus file amended disclosures. I’ve uploaded the report, conclusions, and orders in full and you can read it here. snip..

    Pritzker's great toilet tax caper has returned with a vengeance. The Pritzkers' alleged effort to scam Cook County taxpayers out of $300,000-plus via a property tax reassessment scam immediately cast a giant shadow over the new administration. An investigation conducted by Cook County Inspector General characterized the tax assessment effort as a "scheme for obtaining money by means of false representations" and openly invited federal prosecutors to pursue the matter. Shortly after that Pritzker sent checks to the treasurer covering the $330,000 in questionable refunds that he received. He denied the repayment represented an admission of misconduct. Pritzker is promoting...

    Democratic allies gathered downtown Saturday for Chicago’s latest Women’s March, with organizers pushing for participants to help get out the vote ahead of next month’s midterm elections. Organized as a nonprofit — and not specifically endorsing candidates — the group Women’s March Chicago is bankrolled by Democrats and Democratic supporters. Major donors include the Chicago Federation of Labor and Democratic governor candidate J.B. Pritzker’s campaign. Several thousand took part in Saturday’s march and rally, which was the third Women’s March through Chicago. It was a far cry from the roughly 250,000 who marched through the city shortly after President Donald...

    President Trump blasted the “Failing” New York Times for writing a “hit piece” on him after the newspaper published a story saying he amassed his billion-dollar fortune by helping his parents “dodge taxes” and through “outright fraud.” “The Failing New York Times did something I have never seen done before. They used the concept of ‘time value of money’ in doing a very old, boring and often told hit piece on me,” the president wrote on Twitter Wednesday. “Added up, this means that 97% of their stories on me are bad. Never recovered from bad election call!” The newspaper, in...

    More than three years ago, Sen. Elizabeth Warren told the Internal Revenue Service that she had donated $50,000 in used clothing and "household items" to local thrift stores in 2014. Fifty grand worth of clothes! Donated! In one year. That was the fake Indian’s story and she was sticking to it - until late yesterday afternoon, after we inquired about her rather, uh, profligate spending habits. Suddenly, the fake Indian's story changed. The totals, her flack said, were "entry errors." Hey, Senator, glad I could be of service, in helping you correct your false filing. (And I assume the returns,...

    A Texas woman plans to challenge a judge's decision to deny her a new trial after sentencing her to five years in prison for voter fraud. Crystal Mason was convicted in March of voting illegally in the 2016 presidential election. Texas law makes the 43-year-old ineligible to vote because she was on probation for tax fraud. Mason says she didn't know about that law. When Mason showed up to vote last November, her name wasn't on the voter roll, so she was asked to fill out and sign a provisional ballot. That's when elections workers discovered she was a convicted...

    Facing nearly two dozen federal fraud and conspiracy charges, former U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown took the stand in her own defense on Thursday, saying she was left in the dark while her former chief of staff siphoned thousands of dollars from what prosecutors are calling a sham charity. The Florida Democrat told the jury she was betrayed by her former top aide, Elias “Ronnie” Simmons. “I loved Ronnie Simmons like a son,” said Brown, crying. “A lot of young people in this community end up in jail. I never would’ve wanted that to happen to Ronnie.” Federal prosecutors want Brown...
