Wisconsin Congressmen Propose OMAR Act


WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Rep. Tom Tiffany (WI-07) and Rep. Mike Gallagher (WI-08) introduced the Oversight for Members And Relatives Act or “OMAR Act,” which would put an end to the practice of candidates for office tapping their campaign accounts to enrich their spouses.

“For too long, lawmakers of both political parties have engaged in the ethically dubious practice of pocketing campaign funds by ‘hiring’ their spouses and laundering the money as campaign related expenses,” said Tiffany.

“Loopholes that allow members of Congress to funnel campaign funds to their spouses are despicable and erode trust in our government,” said Rep. Gallagher. “There’s simply no logical reason for allowing this practice to continue, and I’m proud to join Rep. Tiffany in this common-sense effort to ensure members can’t profit off running for Congress.”

The bill is based on a bipartisan proposal introduced in the 110th Congress by Rep. Adam Schiff, and which was endorsed at that time by members of the current House Democrat leadership team.

    Love the name.
    But probably won’t pass. Gotta keep the family income coming.

    They forgot to include immigration fraud…

    So Uber liberal Amazon is pissed because their Alabama distribution center wants to unionize and vote by mail.
    Ultraliberal Amazon does not want mail in voting.
    From Fox News: However, Amazon previously argued that in-person voting is the best way to “approach to a valid, fair and successful election.” The company also said it would make “it easy for associates to verify and cast their vote.”
    You just cannot make up how moronic liberals behave and act.

    Do you support the Omar act?

    Or do you cheer liberal corruption?

    Not to worry.

    They’re Privileged Class Members. They’ll find another way.

    The Chamber of Commerce can always hire one of their children for a no-show job. Ask any Republican!

    My official take on Gallagher/Tiffany is not very complimentary.

    That’s because they are acting like typical 6th-grade girls, just as they’ve been taught by their (R) masters.

    Yes, I do. But I feel it should go even further to prohibit elected officials family members to profit in any way from the elected office. While the cows are out of the barn on the profiteering the trump crime syndicate undertook in the last 4 years, it may stop such abuse in the future.

  8. Kevin Scheunemann


    So you agree Omar should be removed from Congress for corruption?

    Prove, with evidence, that the Trump kids profited from President Trump being in office.
    Come sociopath or are you making things up because you hate President Trump?
    And what about Hunter Biden profiting off of papa Senile Joe?

    k & m:

    Not possible to have a civil discussion with you two. You asked a question k, I answered. Not my fault you can’t process it.

    Again, Herbert sociopath has nothing admits that he is a hateful person who lies.
    This is a sign of a loser. Makes a statement but refuses to stand by it.
    Herbert Sociopath lies again.
    BTW, perhaps if you were not a troll and did not lie about me, we actually could have a decent conversation. Just like respect people Jonnyv and Maxwell and even Pat at times.

  12. Kevin Scheunemann


    I’m not convinced you are serious against corruption with that weak comment.

  13. Le Roi du Nord


    I’m not sure that you are serious about anything other that your faith in your willful ignorance.

    You asked a question, I answered. I don’t care how you feel about it.

  14. Mar

    And Herbert sociopath again adds nothing to the conversation.
    What a troll.
