Rep. Ilhan Omar finds herself at the center of controversy about her personal tax returns.
The Campaign Finance Board discovered she filed tax returns stating she was married to one man when, in fact, she was married to another. The revelation was a part of an investigation into allegations that Omar had misused campaign funds.
Omar agreed to repay $3,500 and pay a $500 fine, but the controversy over her tax filings continues.
When it comes to the issue of filing joint married tax returns with one man while legally married to another, the only statement the Minnesota congresswoman has made is through a campaign spokesperson.
“All of Rep. Omar’s tax filings are fully compliant with all applicable tax law,” the spokesperson said.
