Ilhan Omar: It’s All About Her Benjamins, Baby

Not content with having misused campaign funds in Minnesota for out-of-state travel, not content with having – apparently — married her own brother in order to commit immigration and student-loan fraud, not content with having been – apparently — married to one man at the same time as she declared on her tax returns, two years running, that she was married to another, not content with having committed adultery with her campaign consultant, to whom she paid unusually large sums, both when they were lovers and now that they are married to one another, llhan Omar continues to have a problem with “benjamins.” Those are the 100-dollar bills with Benjamin Franklin’s face on them; “benjamins” is Omar’s synecdoche for money, lots of it.
