In addition to her reputation as a constantly smiling yet constantly antagonistically outspoken inexperienced freshman congresswoman who seems to relish in denigrating President Trump, especially with the word “racist,” and, according to FoxNews recently, seems to despise America, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) is now being accused of being the most corrupt politician in Minnesota history and the subject of two formal requests to Congress to investigate her activity as announced by Republican State Rep. Steve Drazkowski of Minnesota on Tuesday.

Drazkowski said, “Ilhan Omar of Minneapolis may be the most corrupt politician in Minnesota history. That is why I am filing a formal request to the committee on ethics for the U.S. House of Representatives today to ask for an investigation. Ilhan Omar has already established a very lengthy and extraordinary record of legal convictions and fines. This is a record upon which the House Ethics Committee should begin its investigation.”

As the fellow Minnesotan called for an ethics investigation, Judicial Watch, a conservative group with headquarters in Washington, D.C., separately also requested the House Ethics Committee to investigate Rep. Omar for a range of alleged offenses including campaign finance fraud, illegal tax filings, and immigration fraud, which she committed by illegally marrying her brother which was also mentioned recently by President Trump. Previous complaints from Drazkowski led to a finding that Omar violated state rules on the use of campaign funds when she was a state legislator and the repayment of thousands of dollars.

Drazkowski said, “Representative Omar has already been forced in 2017 and 2018 to pay thousands of dollars in campaign finance violations. Representative Omar has already been forced to pay back thousands of dollars she diverted from her campaign donations to pay for personal legal and accounting expenses, as well as personal travel and lodging expenses, to events in five other states. Representative Omar has already been forced to pay a civil penalty for diverting campaign funds to pay for political travels outside Minnesota.”

The behavior of Rep. Omar is for sure a bit confusing to many people, as FoxNews points out that Omar was rescued from the single poorest place on earth, a Somali refugee camp in Kenya, thrived and prospered in America since she was 10, later to become one of the most powerful women in the country who gets paid $174,000 per year. And yet she doesn’t seem to like America.
