The watchdog group Judicial Watch hand-delivered an ethics complaint against Rep. Ilhan Omar over allegations the freshman lawmaker committed immigration fraud and other illegal acts. (Judicial Watch)
 

"The evidence is overwhelming Rep. Omar may have violated the law and House rules.  The House of Representatives must urgently investigate and resolve the serious allegations of wrongdoing by Rep. Omar," stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. "We encourage Americans to share their views on Rep. Omar's apparent misconduct with their congressmen."

The complaint says in part:

Substantial, compelling and, to date, unrefuted evidence has been uncovered that Rep. Ilhan Omar may have committed the following crimes in violation of both federal law and Minnesota state law: perjury, immigration fraud, marriage fraud, state and federal tax fraud, and federal student loan fraud.

Such violations would also breach the Code of Ethics for Government Service, to which all federal officeholders are subject, "Any person in Government service should uphold the Constitution, laws, and legal regulations of the United States and all governments therein and never be a party to their evasion.") Rep. Omar actions in this suspected immigration fraud, marriage fraud, perjurious statements on her Minnesota divorce filings, and falsifications on her tax returns, merit your immediate investigation.


In the words of investigative reporter David Steinberg: "The facts describe perhaps the most extensive spree of illegal misconduct committed by a House member in American history." [emphasis added]
