DON'T DO THE CRIME IF YOU CAN'T PAY THE FINE:

Ilhan Omar violated Minnesota campaign finance rules, state officials say (AP and TOI, 6/09/19)

US Rep. Ilhan Omar violated state rules when she used campaign funds to pay for personal out-of-state travel and help on her tax returns and must reimburse her former campaign committee nearly $3,500, Minnesota campaign finance officials ruled this week.

The Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board said the first-term Democratic congresswoman also must pay the state a $500 civil penalty for using campaign money to travel to Florida, where she accepted an honorarium. [...]

In a statement, her congressional campaign said she is "glad this process is complete" and that she intends to comply with the board's findings.

What, no hoax?
