Will they do it?

WCCO:

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A Minnesota state representative and leading critic of U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar is on the attack again, calling for an ethics investigation into Omar.

Omar has found herself in controversy over her personal life as well as state campaign finance violations. She has admitted to the campaign finance violations and has agreed to pay back over $3,000.

The investigation also revealed she had filed joint tax returns with her partner and father of her children when she was still legally married to another man.

(R-Mazeppa), a persistent critic of Omar, held a press conference Tuesday alleging that she may have committed various forms of fraud as well as perjury. At the press conference, Drazkowski asked for Omar’s colleague, U.S. Rep. Angie Craig (D-2nd District), to call for an ethics investigation in Congress.

Drazkowski says he is asking Craig because she is his Congresswoman. Craig is not on the Ethics Committee; she is on the Agriculture, Transportation and Small Business committees. READ MORE
