Deleted Fundraising Tweet May Mean New Campaign Finance Problem For Ilhan Omar

On Saturday, several outlets reported that Ilhan Omar, the America-hating, terrorist-loving anti-Semitic Democrat representative from Minnesota, posted a tweet in which she claimed to be raising funds for a Minnesota food bank.  She then deleted the tweet after was it was questioned by the director of the project she claimed to be helping.

As it turned out, Omar’s tweet directed followers to ActBlue, a left-wing fundraising website liberals use to fund Democrat candidates.

One of the directors of the program tweeted: “I am the Executive Director of GMCC – Minnesota FoodShare is our program. Ilhan Omar had nothing to do with this project. I do not know where this money is going to”

David Steinberg, who has done stellar reporting on Omar, observed:

Minnesota FoodShare, Twitchy tells us, WAS raising money, but NOT through ActBlue:

The question now is, how much was raised by Omar and did the money actually get to the food bank?

BizPac Review noted:

Omar was accused of violating state campaign finance rules last year and ordered to reimburse more than $3,000 in campaign funds after it was found she had used committee funds for travel expenses. Omar was hit with a Federal Election Commission complaint about paying Tim Mynett, now her husband, and his consulting firm hundreds of thousands of dollars.

As anyone with a conscience should be.

Exit question: Will anything ever be done to stop her?
