|MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Republican Party of Minnesota Chairwoman Jennifer Carnahan released the following statement regarding the emerging issues surrounding Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s marriages, illegal tax filings, and potential perjury:|
“With a new week comes a new crisis for Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, and every new crisis leads to more questions. Earlier this month, Omar was fined for illegal use of campaign finances, and with that, more questions about potential marriage fraud or illegal tax filings arose. Questions surrounding Omar’s marriage history are not new, but now as a sitting Member of Congress, silence simply is not good enough. Was Omar’s marriage in 2009 legitimate? Why did she file taxes with one man while legally married to another? Did she commit perjury to cover up her illegal dealings?
“The real trouble is the lack of transparency and truth. Omar is remaining silent, the hired hands who helped her ‘shut these issues down’ in the past aren’t shedding any light, and the Minnesota DFL continues their quest to ignore each and every crisis caused by Omar. One thing is certain: Minnesotans deserve answers and voters deserve the truth.”
