Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) appears to have been running a charity scam of sorts to raise political funds from individuals thinking they were helping the poor and needy.
Omar made a since-deleted post on her Twitter account in which she asked for donations for Minnesota Food Share, a charitable organization in the state. However, the link Omar gave in her post was to Act Blue, a Democrat Party fundraising portal.

Omar’s message received a response from Adrienne Dorn, who works as the executive director of Greater Minneapolis Community Connections (GMCC), calling out the Somali refugee lawmaker for her misleading tweet. GMCC is tasked with administrating the Minnesota Foodshare program.
“Ilhan Omar had nothing to do with this project. I do not know where this money is going to,” the tweet posted by Dorn read.

“The Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign brings together organizations, businesses, faith communities, and individuals to help keep 300 food shelves statewide stocked throughout the year,” the organization states on its website, noting that contributions are “secured year-round from corporations, individuals, foundations, and businesses.”
They encourage supporters of their project to donate to the cause directly, not through a third-party fundraising platform such as ActBlue.
100% of your donation during the campaign goes to local food shelves who work day after day to build strong communities & feed their neighbors.https://t.co/GKnrgVX3bY
2020 #MarchCampaign runs through April 30.

This is not the first time that Omar has been caught doing dirty dealings with campaign funds. Big League Politics has reported on how Omar has funneled campaign funds to her lover, causing his family to be destroyed as a result:
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has been called many different names since the incendiary figure was elected into Congress last year: fraud, extremist, anti-Semite, Islamist, and now home-wrecker…
Tim Mynett, 38, has worked as a Democratic Party operative for far-left Muslim democrats like Omar and former Congressman Keith Ellison. He allegedly threw away his marriage to his long-time wide despite the fact that the couple has a 13-year-old son.
“The parties physically separated on or about April 7, 2019, when Defendant told Plaintiff that he was romantically involved with and in love with another woman, Ilhan Omar,” according to the court papers.
Beth Mynett was allegedly “willing to fight for the marriage” and willing to forgive her husband even though he was unfaithful and dishonest toward her, but he was not reciprocal. He desperately wanted to run off with his Somali suitor.
Omar, 37, has paid Tim Mynett roughly $230,000 through his E. Street Group for a myraid of services including internet advertising, political consulting, digital media, and travel expenses since 2018. The far left “Squad” member is apparently not above mixing work with pleasure.
“Defendant’s more recent travel and long work hours now appear to be more related to his affair with Rep. Omar than with his actual work commitments,” the court papers claim.
Omar may be the most disreputable member of the entire Congress, and that is saying something. She has displayed the type of governance that multiculturalism will bring to the U.S. if it is not stopped.
Ilhan Omar’s Grandfather Was a Government Official in One of Africa’s Worst Dictatorships
Talk about ‘systematic oppression.’
As Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar accuses American civilization of being a “system of oppression,” it appears that the progressive Democrat has provided little to no public information on her own grandfather’s activities and public duties as a government official in one of Africa’s worst dictatorships.
Omar has described her grandfather, Abukar Omar, as the Director of the National Marine Transport in Somalia in the 1980’s and possibly earlier, serving in the government of then-President Siad Barre. Barre, who took power in 1969, originally governed the country as a Marxist-Leninist before switching his Cold War allegiances to the United States in the late 70’s.
Barre’s government is known as a prolific human rights abuser, persecuting the nation’s Isaaq tribe in a series of government sponsored killings that scholars have referred to as a “forgotten genocide.” Estimates of the civilian casualties of the Isaaq genocide range from 50,000 to 200,000 people.
Omar, who was a child at the time, has also described her family leaving Somalia in 1991, the very year that President Barre was overthrown from power in a revolution that continues to have a destabilizing effect on the East African nation to this day.
It’s of some public interest that a more thorough explanation of Akubar Omar’s duties as an official serving under Siad Barre be provided, especially considering the former Barre official was granted refugee status in the United States sometime after Barre was overthrown in Somalia’s 1991 Civil War.
Omar has described her family as understanding that they were “no longer welcome” in the country as a result of the civil war, a development that may very well have come as a result of her grandfather’s work as a nominally high-ranking government official under the Barre regime. Rep. Omar recounted an incident in which what seems to have been a family compound was placed under siege by rebels who vandalized the property in a 2016 profile with the Minneapolis City Pages.
Omar biographies also suggest that some of her aunts and uncles also worked as civil servants under Barre’s government.
An inquiry into Abukar Omar’s official duties as the Director of the National Marine Transport under Barre’s regime was sent to Omar’s press office, and the Congresswoman has yet to respond as of Wednesday night.
Ilhan Omar was also one of the few Democratic members of Congress to decline to formally vote to recognize the Armenian Genocide conducted by the Ottoman Empire after World War I, claiming the United States should be focusing on the legacy of slavery and persecution of Native Americans instead.
Certainly, one cannot be held to account for actions that their extended relatives engage in when they’re a child; but it’s quite rich that Omar has declined to account for her own grandfather’s seeming participation in a very real and historically documented “system of oppression” in any publicly known remarks on the family connection, while castigating American civilization for its supposed injustices.
