Rep. Omar Under Campaign Spending Investigation
Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is under investigation for violating campaign spending laws while she was a state representative.
Minnesota state Rep. Steve Drazkowski is accusing Omar of using $6,000 in campaign funds on her divorce attorney and personal travel to Estonia and Boston.
Fox News reports: The Minnesota Campaign Finance Board was alerted after Omar, who was a state representative between 2017 and 2019, had to repay $2,500 that she accepted for speeches and higher education institutions funded by the government.
The repayment stems from another complaint filed by Drazkowski. The ruling on the investigation is expected within the next month.
Drazkowski told Sinclair, “I had observed a long pattern. 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.”
