According to reports, Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar has been under investigation for campaign finance violations after complaints alleged that she misused contributions for personal use.
Authorities have reportedly completed the investigation but have not yet compiled their findings or issued any rulings yet.
Sinclair Broadcast Group reports that the complaints were filed last year, while Omar cruised to election to the House of Representatives, by a Republican state lawmaker, Rep. Steve Drazkowski. In referring Omar to the Minnesota Campaign Finance Board, Drazkowski alleged that Omar improperly spent close to $6,000 in campaign funds for personal use, including payments to her divorce attorney and for travel to Boston and Estonia.
“I had observed a long pattern,” said Drazkowski. “Representative Omar hasn’t followed the law. She’s repeatedly trampled on the laws of the state in a variety of areas, and gotten by with it.”
The campaign finance allegations come on the heels of a separate incident where the freshman congresswoman had to return $2,500 in speaking fees, according to The Pioneer Press.
