A report released by the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board shows that Rep. Ilhan Omar broke federal tax law by filing her taxes jointly with a man to whom she was not legally married.

The Thursday report found that Omar filed joint tax returns in 2014 and 2015 with Ahmed Hirsi, her current husband, whom she did not legally marry until 2018.

The Minnesota Democrat had originally married Hirsi in a religious ceremony in 2002, but the couple separated in 2008. Omar then legally married another man, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, in 2009. The two divorced according to their faith tradition in 2011, but Omar did not legally end the divorce until 2017.

Omar got back together with Hirsi, her first husband, in 2012 but they were not legally married and eligible to file taxes together until 2018.

The finding by the Minnesota Campaign Board means Omar tax returns were in violation of federal law.

C'mon, man, ease up. Don't you think asking a congress critter to understand federal law is asking a little much?

Just let her pay the difference + penalty so she can get back to destroying our nation without being harassed by stuff that gets regular American citizens tossed in prison.

It's sad when the actions of a political shill like Omar aren't plastered all over the news.

It's also sad when TexAgs becomes my main source of news.

IRS recognizes common law and I'm sure she'll claim ignorance on the two years where she was cohabiting while not yet divorced.

Can't stand her but this won't result in anything major

I'll bet she claims ignorance. "It wasn't intentional," after all.

Congrats to Hirsi for winning the crown of "Stupidest Man in the World". Bravo.

I have a suspicion that elected officials commit tax fraud at a rate many times that of the public.

You have to respect her culture since she's a democrat and not an old white man. mm is right. Nothing will happen.

Omar, AOC, Al Sharpton, Stacy Abrams...

She will play the "I'm a dumb Somali card" soon enough. She needs to be out of office and off being a pirate like the others.

Quite true, not even the basics such as filing status. But there is not a single member of Congress that understands our tax laws. Kevin Brady thought that reducing the number of tax brackets (in an early version of Trump's tax plan) was simplification. I think they should have to take a test after each vote. The top one third get a raise, the middle one-third gets a pay cut in the same amount, and the bottom one third gets executed.

If you're not committing some kind of tax fraud that's on you. Like they say, "if you're not cheating, you're not trying.".

You are married or you are not. It's not complicated to know which. How is filing as a married couple when not married to the other person on the tax return not fraud? There is no honest error or "mistake" here. This person gets to vote on our tax laws. How idiotic is that? Throw the book at her!

As just the average Joe taxpayer, try pulling these shenanigans with the IRS and see how they treat you compared to this wh*re.

She's a Democrat, female, black, immigrant, and Muslim.

She is safe for any kind of political or legal trouble. She could set off a nuclear bomb and get away with it.
"If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves." - Sir Winston Churchill

Years ago when I was still taking new clients, quite a few couples from south of the border would bring in their prior year return (returns, in this case) and, though they were married, both of them would file as head of household.

But Omar keeps reminding us that no one, including the president should be above the law.

Drive home radio had Rep Cummings lecturing how Trump breaks constitution while his wife cheats the hell out of a charity. Nothing will be done. And that is why they do it.

The IRS does recognize common law marriages. HOWEVER, I am pretty sure you can't be common law married to dude A while still legally married to dude B.

She should have a filed with "married filing separately" or "married (to dude B)" until she was legally divorced from dude B.

But this is going NOWHERE.
