On Wednesday, August 7, the Minnesota Sun reported that state Rep. Steve Drazkowski (R-Mazeppa) and other GOP lawmakers have asked the IRS to investigate tax returns filed by anti-Semitic Democrat Ilhan Omar.
According to the report, Drazkowski believes she may have improperly used campaign funds to correct tax returns filed for 2014 and 2015.

According to a press release from Drazkowski’s office, the requests also ask both agencies to examine “improper payments” Omar accepted for speaking at various Minnesota colleges. During the time of her speeches, she was a member of the Minnesota Legislature and served on the Higher Education Committee, meaning she oversaw the budgets for the institutions she accepted payments from.
“We need to know how she reported that illegal income,” Drazkowski said. “Rep. Omar has demonstrated disdain for transparency. As such, I am asking the IRS and the Minnesota Department of Revenue to initiate a comprehensive investigation into Rep. Omar’s tax returns. The congresswoman’s consistent and intentional misuses of finances should certainly be considered in this matter.”
He went on to claim that Omar “has repeatedly refused to explain why her taxes were illegally filed from the beginning.”
“You can’t be legally married to one person, yet file joint income taxes with another person. Such conduct is blatantly wrong,” he continued.
Taking aim at the local media, he also said Minnesota news outlets have been “asleep at the switch” for failing to look into what he called her “fraudulent” tax returns.
