Rep. Steve Drazkowski joined by 6 other legislators to call on the Minnesota Department of Revenue and the Internal Revenue Service to investigate the illegal tax filing status and possible improper tax deductions of Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.
Minnesota House Republicans are asking the IRS to investigate Ilhan Omar for allegedly filing fraudulent income tax returns. Dayton Representative Eric Lucero claims it is not a partisan issue. He said: “This is about the rule of law. We’re all equal under the law, but based on the evidence that’s available, Congresswoman Omar appears that she might be above the law.”
The state Campaign Finance Board determined Omar and her husband filed joint tax returns before they were actually married and while Omar was legally married to another man. Omar has said little about the findings except that her tax filings are fully compliant with all applicable tax laws.
“I am very pleased that several of my colleagues here in the Minnesota House are joining me in this effort. More and more people are beginning to realize that Rep. Omar’s deceptive conduct is unacceptable. The people deserve answers.”
