Apparently, Ilhan Omar thinks that public figures shouldn’t be scrutinized. If she thinks that, then she’d fit right in as Commissioner of Minnesota’s Department of Human Sacrifices Services. Their deputy commissioners resigned abruptly without explaining why. Then the commissioner abruptly resigned the following Monday without explanation.

Do Minnesota Democrats think that they shouldn’t be held accountable? DFL Chairman Ken Martin certainly didn’t think that Keith Ellison should be punished for his alleged abuse of Karen Monahan.

After the UK Daily Mail and the New York Post broke the story that Ilhan Omar had allegedly had an affair with her chief campaign consultant, the Minneapolis Star Tribune said nary a word. In an interview with WCCO’s Esme Murphy, Omar said she preferred not to talk about her “personal life.” Esme Murphy quickly moved on rather than push her for answers.

Obedience is apparently a requirement to be a Twin Cities ‘reporter’ if you’re a Democrat. Follow-up questions are apparently not allowed with controversial Democrats like Omar. When I tried finding Murphy’s interview of Omar on Youtube, I got this response:

No results found

Thankfully, there are still real journalists left in the Twin Cities. Unlike WCCO, they’ll actually dig into politicians’ lives:

Government ethics watchdog Tom Anderson of the conservative National Legal and Policy Center said Omar may have violated campaign finance law if she used campaign funds to pursue a romantic affair.

“We believe Representative Ilhan Omar may have touched the third rail of campaign finance law: disbursing campaign funds for personal use,” Anderson told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “It’s a brazen act Representative Omar was caught doing before in Minnesota and all of the evidence we’ve seen tells us she’s probably doing it again.”

Brazenness apparently is what Rep. Omar specializes in, along with anti-Semitism. Rep. Omar hasn’t followed the law too often. Thankfully, Minnesota Rep. Steve Drazkowski has persisted in tracking down the truth about Rep. Omar. He’s even started this website that’s essentially a one-stop shopping center on Omar’s foibles. This is just one of the documents posted at Steve’s website:

Rep. Drazkowski should be thanked for doing what the Star Tribune and other Twin Cities media outlets have done. (I won’t call them newspapers because they apparently don’t give a damn about investigative reporting.)

    Gary, it seems to me that if Draz has such a bug in his bonnet to be jumping onto Omar with spurs, he should run against her next election. Remember from Bachmann being redistricted out of CD6, she did run again in CD6 because Reps do not have to reside in the district they seek to represent. Draz could do that, a direct CD3 run against Omar. At a guess you and many LFR readers would support him if he did so, contributing and volunteering.

  • Chad Q says:

    Why does Draz have to run against this vile woman to get her out of her seat? If the democrats had any morals, they would get rid of her themselves. If the media did their jobs, she’d be run out on a rail. Again, the ends justify the means for the democrats.

  • Gary Gross says:

    That’s a tough district for Republicans. BTW- Omar lives in MN-05, not MN-03. Personally, I’m hoping that Rep. Drazkowski runs against do-nothing Rep. Angie Craig in MN-02.

  • eric z says:

    Yeah Gary. Brain Cramp. Phillips holds the CD3 seat. Thanks for catching it. So you think Draz is gunning for Craig’s seat. It would not be a surprise, but running against Omar when Craig would be the target is a bit of Alice in Wonderland. Has he expressed any complaints about Craig? I’ve not seen that.

  • Gary Gross says:

    Actually, it makes a little sense going after Omar. She’s higher profile & Drazkowski is hitting her hard. That’ll sit well with CD-2 activists while raising his fundraising profile. Craig is a cookie-cutter Democrat. She isn’t a good fit for the district either. Drazkowski is from the rural part of CD-2 so that’ll help if he runs. Craig can’t compete with him in rural precincts. If he runs up the margins in rural CD-2, he’ll have a pretty good shot at toppling Craig.
