An ethics committee in the Minnesota Senate unanimously voted to investigate various charges of voter fraud and attempting to get money for his non-profit that may have been illegally aiding his campaign. Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party (DFL) member, Senator Omar Fateh is the target of the probe. Fateh’s brother-in-law, Muse Mohamud Mohamed was found guilty of lying to a grand jury.
Alpha News reported:
“The subcommittee decided Wednesday to formally investigate Fateh for his possible involvement in a voter fraud scheme and an incident in which he tried to secure taxpayer funding for a nonprofit that helped his campaign. The subcommittee also decided without objection to issue subpoenas, bringing in witnesses to share what they know.”
One of Fateh’s campaign operatives (who is also his brother-in-law) was recently found guilty of lying to a grand jury about his conduct in fraudulently trafficking three absentee ballots during the 2020 election. The operative, Muse Mohamud Mohamed, also used to live at an address registered to Fateh’s wife.
The initial ethics complaint filed against the senator accuses him of “failing to expressly address his involvement in the unauthorized delivery of 2020 primary election absentee ballots and retaining his Senate staffer who reportedly directed the fraudulent election activity.”
That staffer, Dawson Kimyon, was an aide to Sen. Fateh until recently and will be subpoenaed by the committee.
You may recall that Project Veritas uncovered a ballot harvesting operation in Minnesota run by friends of Ilhan Omar. They were running a cash-for-ballots scheme. Nothing has come of it yet, almost two years later. Omar’s campaign manager Ali Isse Gainey was a key player in that ballot harvesting scheme.
Trump said in a midnight tweet:
“This is totally illegal. Hope that the U.S. Attorney in Minnesota has this, and other of her many misdeeds, under serious review??? If not, why not??? We will win Minnesota because of her, and law enforcement. Saved Minneapolis & Iron O Range!”
The Minneapolis police department had promised to investigate the fraud charges thoroughly, but they were too tired from all that standing down during the riots and the loss of funding as the city council cut the police budget as part of their Defund the Police action.
