Ilhan Omar Slapped with Ethics Complaint over Campaigning with Somali Leader

Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar of Minnesota is again facing backlash and an ethics complaint, this time over her open association with her native country Somalia’s leadership to help with her reelection campaign.

Ilhan Omar, who is a black Muslim born in Somalia and grew up in America after arriving in the country as a refugee and seeking asylum with her family, is no stranger to controversy. She has been a vocal race-baiter and America-hater on the House floor and in media appearances. Recently, Omar participated in a campaign event where former Somali Prime Minister Hassan Ali Khaire endorsed her.

The involvement of a foreign leader in her campaign rally earned Omar some backlash on social media as well as an ethics complaint filed by the American Accountability Foundation (AAF). The complaint claims that Omar likely violated the Federal Elections Campaign Act and asks for her resignation. The AAF statement reads:

“We are deeply concerned by Ilhan Omar’s illegal campaign rally with the former Prime Minister of Somalia. Omar already has a long history of statements indicating her disdain for America and allegiance to Somalia, but this goes beyond statements. Now her campaign has taken action to involve a foreign leader in an American election. She must resign immediately and return every dollar raised for her at this disgraceful rally.”

Omar was expelled from the House Foreign Affairs Committee in February 2023 over her past comments against Israel, which were deemed antisemitic by conservatives. The move was called Islamphobic and racist by Omar and her fellow House Democrats.

In April this year, the Anti-Defamation League condemned Ilhan Omar for a statement that called some Jewish students in America “pro-genocide” as she visited her daughter Isra Hirsi at the Columbia University. Hirsi was one of the dozens of anti-Israel protesters arrested at Columbia and suspended from the school over trespassing. Last month, Fox News reported business-related fraud involving Omar’s current husband, whose consulting firm got $3 million from Omar’s 2020 election campaign.

Ilhan Omar has also showed open hatred toward white people on several occasions including her public speeches and media interviews.

Omar remains accused of committing immigration fraud by marrying her brother, at least on paper, in order to make him an American citizen. In August 2021, Tucker Carlson reported on Fox News that the FBI apparently knew of Omar’s immigration fraud but didn’t do anything about it.

    Just another squad member that we should revoke citizenship (which was a privilege given to her) and ship her home so she can run for president of Somalia! By the way, she does represent a constituency that is 80% Muslim so she needs to learn how to strike that fine line between representing her constituency and being anti-American in her thoughts. In all of her years in Congress, she has failed miserably to do this.

    And she has failed in executing her “allegiance” to the USA as stated in the solemn congressional oath that she said on her first day in congress which goes like this, ” I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.

    I wonder, would we allow a former leader of Russia and a Putin friend to contribute to a GOP congress person’s campaign?

    Omar should be censured and face the law for any errors in judgement that she has.

    HOWEVER, the American Accountability Foundation is dubbed “the slime machine” by The New Yorker, being a conservative opposition research organization targeting various individuals, all liberals. The AAF is also a hidden, dark money group, that does not disclose their revenue stream or their owners…. sorry, clients……. Sorry — I mean DONORS, wink wink nudge nudge

    Think Steele Report on steroids. Think attempting to block every Biden appointment they can. IF Omar fucked up as they say she fucked up, the House Speaker should take action. But, if AAF called him, they would not be able to generate as much dark money.

    The are basically bounty hunters with all liberals being on the list.

    Basically, these guys feed off Republican frustrations and try to block any and all Biden appointments, laws, programs, as well as anything deemed liberal. It does not matter what they block, just the head count. They own the governmental hit list for Trump when he takes office as to which senior government workers need to go first. They are funded by The Heritage Group for this. They claim they will post the list a day after the vote, if needed.

    IRS is investigating their hiding of money that could affect the 529 status.

    On either side of the aisle we have gotten to the point where this type of research is a massive career for many. Both Horist and I were in DC at the same time, he’s got a decade plus on me, but I am betting if if was today, we were in our 20’s or early 30’s; good chance this is where we would be employed. Our career paths are amazingly similar, except he in politics, mine in product. But I bet either of us would jump at opposition research, policy research, whatever. It’s such a huge market today. In over a decade, 529’s have grown 400%

    AAF is an example of a seedy company that produces nothing except slime. I am sure there are dozens more, both sides of the aisle and, some, like the boogers that did the Steele report work for both sides, with the same information, almost at the same time. I remember that part. Produce a report, own it, and then sell it with a little custom to a number of competitors. I found the practice low and could not wait to get out of that place. Omar may be guilty but I would double-vet anything these schmucks come up with.
