On or about 8-7-2019 Minnesota Lawmakers Filed a Formal Request to the IRS, to Investigate Ilhan Omar.
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.
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.
