Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has been very vocal about her desire to see President Donald Trump’s tax returns, but the same cannot be said when the shoe is on the other foot.
After the Associated Press confirmed that Omar filed a joint tax return with someone that was not her husband, Omar refused to make her tax returns public.
Ilhan Omar has been a nightmare for the Democratic Party ever since she was elected to the House of Representatives. As a Muslim in a Muslim-dominated community, much of her behavior was kept out of the public eye prior to the 2018 election.
That has all changed now that she is playing in the big leagues. After Omar was elected to office, people started to dig through her timeline and came up with some very interesting discoveries.
First and foremost were the past and present anti-Semitic remarks that have been uttered by Omar. Secondly, there is her open support of Muslim organizations that are associated with extremist Muslim groups.
Still, not long after taking her seat, Omar was quick to call out Trump for not having shown his tax returns yet.
🤔 Imagine if we were able to see Trump’s most recent tax returns — as required by law. https://t.co/RhFz1GXd4o

You would think that someone that lives in a glass house would be reluctant to throw stones, but that is exactly what Omar did. Now, it is all coming back to bite Omar.
For months, there has been speculation that Omar did some shady things both in her tax filings and with campaign funds.
Recently, her campaign finance violations were proven and she was told she needed to pay back all the funds used for personal expenses as well as paying a $500 fine.
Now, it would appear she has even bigger problems. It is suspected that Omar may have actually filed joint returns with two different men, which would be a clear violation of federal tax law.
There is also speculation she may have been at one point married to her brother.
Omar can’t help but make comments that put her in the spotlight, but she would be best served for her career’s sake to lay low until this latest scandal passes over, IF it ever does.
