US Controversial Congresswoman Ilhan Omar was ordered Friday to pay-back over $3,000 and pay additional fines for violating campaign finance laws during her short time as a state representative in Minnesota.“
Congresswoman Rep. Ilhan Omar has been ordered to reimburse her campaign account about $3,500 and to pay a fine of $500 after an investigation found she illegally used campaign funds in 2016 and 2017,” reports the New York Post.
“The illegal donations date back to when Omar, who represents a district in Minnesota, served as a state representative,” adds the Post.
“I’m glad this process is complete and that the Campaign Finance Board has come to a resolution on this matter,” Omar told the newspaper in a statement.
Omar made national headlines following her swearing-in last January on a series of issues; including anti-Israeli remarks, flippant comments regarding the 9/11 terror attacks, vicious comments towards the President, and more.
Last week, the far-left legislator claimed the White House was “weaponizing” the US census to target minorities.“It’s now explicit: Trump is weaponizing the Census to benefit ‘Republicans and Non-Hispanic Whites.’
This is an attack on democracy and in any other Administration, it would be a multi-year scandal,” posted Omar on social media.
