  • The Left - Lacking Integrity, Ethics, ...

    I'll lead off here with an example of one of the "shining stars" of the Left, expecting more examples to apply. In this first case, the most recent thread on her is closed, so part of the reason for starting this one;

    Ilhan Omar’s problems with marriage, divorce, tax returns and campaign money
    ...
    WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar was 19 years old in 2002 when she first applied for a Hennepin County marriage license with Ahmed Hirsi, a fellow Somali immigrant and “the love of my life.”

    Though the couple would have three children together, split, and later reconcile, they never legally married until January of 2018. By then Omar represented a state House seat from Minneapolis and was on her way to a historic and ultimately successful run for Congress.

    Long-standing questions about her complicated marriage and immigration history have dogged her ever since, never more so than on Thursday when a state campaign finance board revealed that Omar and Hirsi filed joint tax returns in 2014 and 2015 — a period when she was legally married to another man.

    The disclosure followed an inquiry sparked by a Republican lawmaker accusing Omar of using cash from her 2016 state House campaign to cover legal costs from her 2017 divorce from Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, a British national she had legally married in 2009 after her breakup with Hirsi.

    Although the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board cleared Omar in the divorce case, the probe determined that campaign money was used for unrelated legal services pertaining to her joint tax filings with Hirsi. She was ordered to reimburse $1,500 in legal fees used to “correct” her 2014 and 2015 tax returns.

    In all, she was assessed $3,469.23 in fines and reimbursements for the tax case and other violations of state campaign finance laws, most of them relating to non-campaign travel costs.
    ...
    The Internal Revenue Service allows couples to file joint tax returns only if they are legally married in their states of residence. While some states recognize “common law” marriages, Minnesota does not. Joint filers often end up paying less in income tax than if they filed separately. The agency does not confirm or deny its audits or investigations, so officials would not reveal if they have looked into any past tax filings by Omar, a freshman Democratic House member.
    Omar said in an interview last year with the Star Tribune that she and Hirsi, both Muslims, were married in their faith tradition in 2002. They separated in 2008, a year before she legally married Elmi.

    Omar said she and Elmi split in 2011, divorced “in our faith tradition,” and she reunited with Hirsi soon after. In a 2016 statement, Omar said she and Hirsi were married “in our faith tradition and are raising a family together.” Like all families, she continued, “we have had our ups and downs but we are proud to have come through it together.”

    But according to public records, Elmi and Omar’s divorce was not finalized until 2017, and she and Hirsi did not legally wed until January 2018.

    No surprises here. Lies, cheating and duplicity are all part of the same pattern, and this lady is worse than most.

              It's better than the alternative. I'm not sure what her taxes and marriage status has to do with her supposed lack of peace and love though.

                  Guess you need one of these

                  BTW, term and concept of hypocrisy mean anything to you?

                  Meanwhile, what specifically is the "alternative" "YOU" are referring to?

                    I know what you were trying to say, and I'm not judging her character good or bad. I'm simply saying that her marriage and taxes are irrelevant. These aren't things I've ever used to judge anyone on, so there's no hypocrisy.

                      If there was a politician's bible it'd be in there as well. Definitely not something unique to Omar, so speaking of hypocrisy, this might be it.

                          How can taxes be irrelevant? They are a matter of Federal Law.

                            In the context of what's being presented, I cannot determine whether she's a good person based on her filing joint income tax.

                              Well many others would. Getting married to one man will still married to another would suggest either dishonest or incapable of paying attention to details. Same with regards to filling incorrect, or false, tax returns. Also same with regards to mis-use of campaign funds for personal finance needs.

                              Compounding this would be social and political agendas counter to the founding principles of our nation.
