Ilhan Omar’s Corruption Triggers Legislation

The corruption exhibited by Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has triggered legislation in her name.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

The Oversight for Members And Relatives, or OMAR, Act was introduced Friday by Wisconsin Reps. Mike Gallagher (R.) and Tom Tiffany (R.), and specifically references the millions of dollars Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar (D.) has sent from her campaign to her husband’s consulting firm. In the most recent cycle Omar’s campaign sent $2.9 million to the firm, accounting for nearly 80 percent of its political business.

“Loopholes that allow members of Congress to funnel campaign funds to their spouses are despicable and erode trust in our government,” Gallagher said.

The congressmen point to past support across the political spectrum for further oversight of payments to family—a 2007 proposal by Rep. Adam Schiff (D., Calif.) would have barred spouses from being on any campaign’s payroll.

“Regardless of political party, we should all be able to agree that running for political office shouldn’t be part of a family enrichment scheme,” Tiffany said. “Passing the OMAR Act will help restore public confidence in Congress and stop politicians from effectively pocketing their campaign funds.”

Maxine Waters has also been known to be the main funder of some of her children’s campaign consulting businesses.

This is how corruption works. Omar’s constituents could not care less that she is stealing money from other taxpayers. So they keep electing this scumbag to congress no matter what.

You can thank Bill Clinton and others for bringing in tens of thousands of Ethiopian Somali refugees and dumping them in the Minneapolis area, just like they have done to other US cities that are now unrecognizable!

Racism comes in all colors. A good definition of racism is making arguments and decisions based on race. It seems that All Democrats and half the Republicans are racists by this definition. It also is apparent that the very worse racists in our society are Negroes, and the other minorities (and EVERYBODY knows it). I wonder why that is so? Do you think it is because when you yell RACIST you get a lot of attention, and many of these dishonest people even get rewarded.

The more a person ignores another person’s race in any discussion or argument, the less he is a racist. The more a person depends on the existence of other people’s race in an argument or discussion, the more racist that person is. Are there ANY Congressional Democrats that aren’t racist?

This is pretty mild stuff compared to the other insider trading issues. Also, what about Maxine the hater Waters and funneling funds to her daughter. Are they afraid to call out this hater on this too? The immediate family of persons holding office should not be paid over a specific amount (and adjust for inflation) ever.

Well, I think this bill is a great start to nailing this woman who allegedly has a list of fraudulent actions including tax fraud. What is so troubling about Omar is her apparent disdain for this country and her sharp rhetoric toward others, especially her anti-semitic diatribes and haughty attitude. May I suggest she return to her homeland…but maybe her idea is to reap the bounty from cngress, then return to the homeland and live like the princess she thinks she is.

Kick her out of the USA and send her back to Somalia. She can have sex with her brother while her husband watches. Or the other way around. Go back to the country where they bless the cows.

It’s about time that Omar is held accountable for all the scandals that she is involved in. WHERE IS THE ETHICS BOARD AND WHEN IS SHE GOING TO BE PUNISHED? Talking about all the crap she says and does means nothing where is the punishment?.
