Ilhan Omar’s Hometown Paper Calls Her Credibility Into Question

Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar has drawn continued scrutiny during her brief time in Congress, and on Wednesday, her hometown paper, the Minnesota Star Tribune, published a scathing writeup of her performance since being elected in 2018.

“US Rep. Ilhan Omar is back in the news again, and not in a good way,” wrote the paper, noting that Omar “continues to be dogged by past missteps.”

The paper pointed out that “this time, eight violations of Minnesota campaign-finance law” will cost Omar around $3,5000 in penalties .

Additionally, the paper went on to call Omar’s filings “disturbing,” noting, “further, she was legally married to another man at the time.”

“Omar’s political rise has been marred by a series of unforced errors,” continued the paper. “Every month seems to bring a fresh problem.”
