Rep. Ilhan Omar is fined for repeatedly violating Minnesota campaign finance rules by improperly using funds for personal travel and for a lawyer to make corrections to her tax returns 

Rep. Ilhan Omar is fined for state campaign finance violation

The Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board published its findings on Thursday, ordering Omar to personally reimburse her own campaign account $3,469.23 and to pay a civil penalty of $500 for violating state campaign finance rules. The violations date back to Omar's time as a representative in the Minnesota state House in 2016 and 2017, and the reimbursement amount represents spending of campaign funds that the board says were not allowed by state law. That includes a payment of $1,500 her campaign made to a law firm following the formation of a 'crisis committee' in August 2016 to respond to allegations that Omar 'married to her brother as part of an immigration scheme,' according to the board's report. Omar has vehemently denied that her first legal husband, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, is her husband. She is seen right with her second husband, Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi, to whom she is currently married.
