What’s that old saying…
If you do the crime, you do the time?
Well, apparently that doesn’t apply to radical Democrats like Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) as she was found guilty of violating campaign finance laws but only has to pay fines.
According to news reports, Omar was ordered to pay a $500 civil fine and an additional $3,469 fine for improperly using campaign funds following and investigation by the Minnesota Campaign Finance & Public Disclosure Board.
Fox 9 news also reported:
U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar must personally pay a $500 civil fine to the state for violating a campaign finance law, the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board ordered Thursday.
In addition, Omar must reimburse her political campaign $3,469 for improperly used campaign funds, the board said in its decision.
Five times, Omar’s campaign improperly paid hotel or travel expenses for Omar to attend out-of-state events in 2017, the board found. In other cases, the board found Omar’s campaign had paid for Omar’s immigration records and two years of tax returns without justifying their benefit to her campaign.
While it seems the punishment doesn’t fit the crime, it does open doors into other potential investigations by US immigration and the IRS.
Independent reporter David Steinberg wrote saying,
As I have written, Ilhan Omar likely committed a remarkable number of additional felonies due to her fraudulent 2009-2017 marriage.
Today’s report appears to confirm the worst of them: Ilhan Omar may have filed EIGHT YEARS of fraudulent federal and state tax returns.
Things that make you go hmmm: Read this closely and keep in mind that @ilhanmn was legally married to Ahmed Elmi from 2009-2017 while also filing joint tax returns with Ahmed Hirsi in 2014 and 2015. Time to get federal IRS officials involved… pic.twitter.com/QERg3PoBZD

Could Omar have filed EIGHT YEARS of fraudulent federal and state tax returns?
But most importantly…
Why isn’t there a full-blown DOJ and FBI investigation into Ilhan Omar?
