Freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., is reportedly under investigation for her campaign spending as a state lawmaker, conservative media outlet Sinclair reported Monday.

Sinclair Broadcast Group's James Rosen, in a post on ABC affiliate WJLA in Washington that cited unnamed sources, reported the Minnesota Campaign Finance Board is preparing to issue rulings within the next 4-6 weeks on a pair of complaints filed last year by GOP state lawmaker, Rep. Steve Drazkowski.

Drazkowski alleged Rep. Omar improperly spent close to $6,000 in campaign funds for personal use, including payments to her divorce lawyer and for travel to Boston and Estonia. 

"I had observed a long pattern," Drazkowski told Rosen. "Rep. Omar hasn't followed the law. She's repeatedly trampled on the laws of the state in a variety of areas, and gotten by with it."

Rosen reported Omar, as a state lawmaker, had repaid $2,500 for honoraria she received for speeches at colleges that receive state funding, a violation of ethics rules for Minnesota lawmakers.
