The “Freshman Furies” — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib — have been causing quite the waves in Washington, D.C. lately.
Today, it’s Representative Ilhan Omar’s turn.
However, not for the reasons she hoped.
As if her constant anti-Semitic attacks weren’t enough, Omar decided it would be ok for her to spend her campaign money on her personal life.
Omar is being investigated by the Minnesota Campaign Finance Board for alleged campaign finance violations.
Minnesota State Representative, Steve Drazkowski, referred Omar to the Campaign Finance Board, alleging she spent close to $6,000 in campaign funds for personal use.
Rep. Omar is being accused of spending the money to pay for a trip to Boston and Estonia.
I wasn’t aware that Estonia was in her district. Eastern Europe is a long way from Minnesota.
If that wasn’t bad enough, she has been accused of spending campaign funds to pay for her divorce.
Why would anyone want to divorce her? She seems like such a pleasant person.
Maybe she will spend that money on an appearance on the daytime court program: Divorce Court.

When Omar was asked in a debate about the allegations, she responded by calling Rep. Drazkowski a “bigot.”
There it is: playing the victimhood card.
The Left hides behind the shield of political correctness all the time. If you dare to penetrate that shield with reasonable objections, you are condemned.
Ilhan Omar possesses the trifecta of victimhood: She is a woman, she is Islamic, and she is an immigrant.
She is untouchable; she is off limits to scrutiny. Got a disagreement with her? Too bad — you’re a sexiest Islamophobe who hates immigrants. How dare you question her authority?
Ilhan Omar is something of a bigot herself. She is an open anti-Semite. She doesn’t particularly care much for Jews.
She tweeted: “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people of Israel. #Gaza #Palestine #Israel.”
Imagine if it were a Christian saying something similar about a Muslim.
The reaction might be a tad different, I think.
Ilhan Omar has accused the Jews of paying off politicians to support Israel and accused American Jews of dual loyalty, an anti-Semitic stereotype that goes back thousands of years. The Jews have been accused of manipulating world events with their money.
The Democrats have launched an all-out assault on President Trump, accusing him of campaign finance violations with regards to paying off women.
However, they are oddly silent when it comes to accusations against their own members.
Omar isn’t the only Democratic lawmaker being accused of campaign violations. Her fellow Democratic “fresh face” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been accused of similar crimes herself.
“Ocasio-Cortez and her chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, are facing allegations that they committed a crime by failing to disclose their dual leadership in Justice Democrats, her campaign PAC, and her campaign.”
It is a violation of campaign finance law for a candidate to control their campaign and PAC (political action committee).
Charkrabarti is also facing serious charges for allegedly laundering $1,000,000 into private businesses from Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign funds.
And that’s not all.
AOC’s boyfriend may have received illegal payments from her campaign. Her boyfriend did some digital marketing work for her campaign. Instead of the campaign paying him directly, they paid a third party — her PAC.
Did you hear about that in the mainstream media?
Yeah, me either.
The hypocrisy on the Left continues.
Ilhan Omar is just another case in a long line of similar stories that aren’t properly reported by the press.
She will continue to be shielded from criticism by her status of victimhood.
