Rep. Ilhan OmarA pro-Israel activist is not surprised that radical Muslim Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is being fined for campaign finance violations.

The New York Post reports that the freshman congresswoman from Minnesota has been ordered to pay back about $3,500 to her campaign account as well as a $500 fine after an investigation revealed she illegally used campaign funds in 2016 and 2017 while serving in the Minnesota Legislature. The illegal payments included $1,500 to a law firm that her campaign hired to respond to allegations that she married her brother as part of an immigration scheme. The rest was used for travel expenses for political events.

"I'm glad this process is complete and that the Campaign Finance Board has come to a resolution on this matter," Omar responded.

Laurie Cardoza-Moore, president of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations (PJTN), believes this incident illustrates Omar's lack of integrity.

"We've all been questioning her loyalty to the United States, our Constitution, our laws, and she has violated the law," Cardoza-Moore asserts. "You can't tell me she didn't know what she was doing. It all comes back to the integrity of the individual."

She adds that Omar's integrity issues go beyond this campaign finance violation.

"The people that she's been involved with, the people she's been raising money for … we see the illegal activity that they're involved in," the PJTN president notes. "No, I'm not surprised. She probably thought she could get away with it because she's above the law."

Cardoza-Moore hopes Omar will eventually be forced from office.
