Republican Steve Representative Steve Drazkowksi from Mazeppa is asking the U-S House Ethics Committee to investigate allegations of tax, immigration and student aid fraud against Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar. Drazkowski says there’s mounting evidence and “it’s just hard to not see the fact that there is something solidly, completely wrong here.”
Kenja Hadj-Moussa with TakeAction Minnesota responds the allegations are part of a campaign strategy to spread misinformation about Omar. She says it “mirrors the same strategies that President Trump used against Barack Obama, calling into question about his birth certificate.”
Minnesota Republicans are apparently trying to get the attention of the president, hoping he’ll include the allegations in his attacks against Omar and three other congresswomen.
