Ilhan Omar raises nearly $1M after controversies, tops other progressive Dems like AOC, Tlaib

Embattled Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar is beating other House Democrats by raising nearly $1 million, despite a series of anti-Semitic controversies that plagued her first three months in office.

Omar, who continues to face controversy over comments in which she appears to describe the September 11, 2011 terror attacks as “some people did something,” has proven to be able to monetize in the wake of a backlash.

According to a Federal Election Commission filing on Monday, Omar raised $832,000 in the first quarter this year, a figure well above other some of her Democratic colleagues.

By comparison, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, N.Y., raised $725,000 in the first quarter while Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., another progressive, raised only $316,000 — which is over half a million dollars less than Omar’s figure.
