Republicans introduce bill, named after Ilhan Omar, to stop campaign cash from being paid out to family

Republican Representatives introduce a bill named after Ilhan Omar after reports emerged that her campaign paid $2.8 million to a firm owned by her husband.

The bill is titled the “Oversight for Members and Relatives Act” or the “OMAR Act” a clever acronym brought fourth by Wisconsin Representatives Tom Tiffany, and Mike Gallagher.

Mike Gallagher claims “Loopholes that allow members of Congress to funnel campaign funds to their spouses are despicable and erode trust in our government,”

This is not the first example of massive amounts of campaign funds being moved by members of Congress to the pockets of their loved ones.

Maxine Waters, a Democrat from California has given over $1 million in campaign cash to her daughter since 2003 according to Federal Election Data.

Aside from her daughter, various other members of the Waters family have received over $1 according to a 2004 report.

Officials abusing their office, and status as a candidate in order to raise money and line their families pockets is certainly an issue that needs to be addressed.
