New Development In Omar Cash For Ballot Scandal Is Devastating, She’s Going To Have To Step Down
Rep. Ilhan Omar has found herself wrapped up in another controversy and the latest developments in the cash for ballot scandal is devastating.
On Sunday, allegations surfaced that Rep. Ilhan Omar has been engaging in a ballot harvesting scheme providing cash for ballots.
Project Veritas teamed up with a watchdog group that protects the Somali population in Minnesota, one of the undercover members is also a member of the local sheriff’s office.
An undercover investigation carried out by Project Veritas uncovered the scandal:
Project Veritas investigators revealed a ballot harvesting scheme here involving clan and political allies and associates of Ilhan Omar in the first of a series of reports.
“Numbers don’t lie. Numbers don’t lie. You can see my car is full. All these here are absentees’ ballots. Can’t you see? Look at all these, my car is full. All these are for Jamal Osman… We got 300 today for Jamal Osman only,” said Liban Mohamed in a series of Snapchat videos posted July 1 and July 2 on his own Snapchat profile.
Mohamed said he was collecting the ballots to help his brother win the city’s Aug. 11 special election for a vacant Ward 6 city council race—which was held the same day as the primary for Omar’s MN-05 congressional seat. Ward 6 is the heart of the city’s Somali community and the Omar’s political base.
Our investigation found that among three locations inside Ward 6, a ballot harvesting triangle, where the scheme operates: the Riverside Plaza apartments, the senior citizen community at Horn Towers and the Minneapolis Elections and Voter Services office at 980 E. Hennepin Ave., which also functions as a voting location and ballot drop-off site.
The investigation found that as soon early voting starts they scam the elderly. They exchange ballots for cash. This is exactly the type of scheme that used to occur in North Jersey and New York only a few decades ago.
In a new development, Eric Trump announced that based on what they’ve seen the Trump campaign is referring Rep. Ilhan Omar for referral for criminal investigation and the Minneapolis Police Department has also opened an investigation.
The campaign will immediately be bringing this voter fraud to the @FBI and applicable authorities in Minneapolis this morning. They are on it. #BallotHarvesting @JamesOKeefeIII

The FBI isn’t going to be able to ignore this one and Nancy is going to put up with this in a close election; Omar is going to have to step down.
