A new report has been released on Rep. Ilhan Omar which has revealed that the congresswoman very well may have been married to another man when she filed taxes with her current husband. As The Daily Wire reports:
Last week, a Minnesota campaign finance review board released a report detailing a months-long investigation into whether Omar violated Minnesota ethics laws. But, according to The Hill, the report also speculated that Omar and her husband, Ahmed Hirsi, filed joint tax returns in 2014 and 2015 while Omar was still legally married to another man.
Omar’s fundraising did land her in some hot water. She was “ordered … to repay her state House campaign committee nearly $3,500 in funds used in violation of law, as well as pay to the state a $500 civil penalty” for misusing or miscategorizing money that was supposed to go toward her campaign for Congress (including, allegedly, a nearly $3,000 payment to a divorce attorney).
But it’s no doubt the other potential problems that could mean real trouble. According to the Associated Press, the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board mentioned that Omar’s financial disclosures contained some irregularities, and although they aren’t the ones to ultimately investigate and punish her for them, the board felt they were worth mentioning.
For instance, “Omar and her husband, Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi, filed joint tax returns for 2014 and 2015 — before they were actually married and while Omar was legally wed to another man,” a practice that runs afoul of both Minnesota state law and federal tax law.
It seems unlikely this revelation will do much to dampen Omar’s radical Left-Wing extremism however.
