State Representative Steve Drazkowski is calling for the House Committee on Ethics to investigate Omar.
Drazkowski led the call for an investigation by the State Campaign Finance Board, which revealed earlier this month that Omar and her partner had joint tax returns when they were married to someone else. That revelation has fuelled her martial history with a new wave of attacks on Omar.
“Minnesota deserves better,” he said. “America demands more.”
Why Congresswoman Craig?
“She is my congresswoman,” Drazkowski said.
The state Campaign Finance board found earlier this month that Omar violated campaign finance regulations.
Omar has agreed repay more than $3,000. The investigation also found Omar filed joint taxes with her partner Ahmed Hirsi, the father of her three children, while she was still legally married to a man named Ahmed Elmi. Omar has repeatedly denied unsubstantiated reports that Elmi is her brother and that she married him for immigration purposes. Drazkowski says the issue is unresolved.
He said, “The people of Minnesota and the people of America can find answers to what appears to be a sham marriage.”
