Minnesota Newspaper Tired of Omar’s Scandals

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune editorial board is growing tired of the constant controversies surrounding freshman lawmaker Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.).


"Every month seems to bring a fresh problem" with Omar, the board wrote, after she agreed to repay $3,500 and $500 fines following an investigation into misuse of campaign funds. The Campaign Finance Board found Omar had filed a joint tax return with a man when she was legally married to another at the time.


"Omar’s political rise has been marred by a series of unforced errors, including intemperate remarks and tweets earlier this year that were widely perceived as anti-Semitic," the board wrote. "Every month seems to bring a fresh problem."


The board said Omar's tax discrepancy was potentially serious enough to merit further investigation:

It’s against the law in Minnesota to file jointly unless one filer is legally married to the other. Last year Omar told the Star Tribune that she had married her partner "in her faith," and had earlier divorced her first husband "in her faith." That’s fine for religious purposes. But for tax purposes, only civil marriages qualify. It’s not known whether she benefited materially by filing jointly. That is something that voters, who are obliged to follow tax laws no matter how painful, are entitled to know.
It’s not too much to expect that a lawmaker would check with a tax attorney on a rather complicated marital status before filing.
[…]
If this pattern continues, further investigation may be necessary. Omar could have avoided nearly every infraction by taking simple measures in advance to determine whether her actions would pass legal muster. In its findings, the board noted that Minnesota "House Research staff did explain that generally when they discuss whether a member can accept something of value, for example, travel and lodging reimbursement … they discuss whether that would violate the gift prohibition," but do not advise. "Rather, they commonly refer members to the Board. The Omar committee did not contact Board staff … on the appropriateness of using committee funds for the travel reviewed in this investigation."
It's not Omar's first financial transgression, either. She had to return $2,500 in speaking fees while a member of the Minnesota State House for accepting money from groups with business before the legislature.......

When the public elects a person who has a differing set of moral values than what is generally deemed acceptable these things are going to happen. It is obvious Omar has no respect for our laws and morals. I hope her District has taken notice and elects someone who supports our Constitution next election.

Muslims are genetically damaged by centuries of inbreeding and as a result, are predominately unbalanced. This is medically documented and in no way phobic. God said their hand would be against all men-even each other. A muslim idiom is "give a muslim a weapon and if he has no enemy he will kill his brother". No matter where they come from they are the enemy of civilization, and the masters of death. Omar is the perfect Democrat.

Gen_16:12  And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.

It always amazes me how many Muslims will come to this country to be "free", then immediately begin protesting our way of life and the very freedoms they supposedly came here for. There is a Christian radio station here, 91.5 FM (Bott Radio Network) with some excellent teachers. One day they got really heavy into immigration and the biblical aspect of it. The people immigrating into the new society are the ones expected to conform to the area they themselves moved into, not vice versa. Yet in our nation, we bend over backwards to make certain their old customs are respected and tolerated. And this, my friends, is how you lose a nation.

DITTO! We are “circling the drain” as a free nation. Illegals, love of socialism, extreme love of Satan and hatred of God, etc., etc., etc. RIP America. :cry

Immigration and a world without borders is a demonic concept to reverse the Babel effect. Our God created borders by confounding the languages. Borders are God ordained and for His purposes. Just another sign of man's rebellion. There is even a hearing aide being developed that will translate all the languages on earth!

Wow, I'd like to get one of those so I could know what people are saying, without learning their language.

You can buy really cool translation devices on Amazon. They are only around $200 for the really good ones. My daughter is fluent in French and it can translate everything she says perfectly. They are pretty small too, at least small enough you can carry in a purse or in your laptop bag. The first ones that came out were pretty awful, but the newer ones are pretty neat.

Sounds good, thanks. I am sure there would be times when I don't want to know what they are saying also.:)
