Ilhan Omar Believes Republicans Getting ‘A Pass From Serious Scrutiny’ For Election Challenges

Minnesota Democratic House Rep. Ilhan Omar offered her opinion today on the election challenges by Republicans currently taking place across the country and in the Supreme Court.

In a tweet, Omar referenced “The Squad” that she is a part of and said, “Republicans get a pass from serious scrutiny. Just imagine if AOC, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley and I were suing to over turnout an election because our candidate lost.”

Omar claimed, “The whole country would erupt. It would be media frenzy. They would call us names and call for our arrest.”

It was reported earlier that “The Squad” want to see Joe Biden use executive actions to cancel student loan debt, raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour for federal contractors, declare climate change a national emergency and more if he assumes office in January.

NBC News reported that Omar said, “We’ve all seen what it’s like trying to get meaningful legislation past Republicans in the Senate. We know that there is a lot that can be done at the executive level.”

Omar has been silent, however, as Democrat Rita Hart plans to file a petition with the Democratically-controlled U.S. House challenging the outcome in Iowa’s close 2nd Congressional District race where Republican state Sen. Mariannette Miller-Meeks of Ottumwa was declared Congresswoman-elect.

Biden has called Trump’s refusal to concede the election “an embarrassment” and continued to move forward with the presidential transition despite resistance from the White House and Republican leaders.
