Rumors have surrounded Ilhan Omar from the very beginning.
Her previous marriage had been the subject of suspicion before she was even elected.
And new evidence is about to send Omar’s career toppling down.
Omar has been able to get away with saying things that would’ve ended any other politician’s career.
She tweeted that the United States relationship with Israel is “all about the Benjamins, baby,” in a stunning display of anti-Semitism.
She advocated a lighter sentence for a man who was caught trying to join ISIS.
She referred to 9/11, which was the deadliest terrorist attack in American history as, “Some people [who] did something.”
The fact that she’s still a media darling after saying such terrible things shows the hypocritical standard the media holds.
But even the media won’t be able to save her in her latest scandal.
Rumors began swirling about Omar’s second marriage during her campaign.
Pundits believe she was married to her brother illegally and committed visa fraud.
Rather than providing any proof that the reports were untrue, Omar decried them as racist attacks.
And now new evidence is proving her story is full of major holes.
She claimed she had been estranged from her first husband Ahmed Hirsi – whom she is now remarried to – during the years she was married to Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, who is speculated to be her brother.
However, the Washington Examiner reports:
“Public documents, for instance, place Hirsi and Omar living in a home together in the Cedar Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis in 2009, the year Elmi and Omar married, and two years before Omar claims she reconciled with Hirsi.
In legal documents, including 24 traffic violations and misdemeanor charges against Hirsi obtained by the Washington Examiner, Hirsi listed his address at a single Cedar Riverside address consistently in 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011. Four minor cases against Omar show that in 2007, 2009, and 2012, she listed her address at the same Cedar Riverside address.
Specifically, local courts listed this address for both Omar and Hirsi in separate traffic violations in mid-2009, the year Omar and Elmi married.”
It’s clear Omar has been lying about the nature of her second marriage.
Unfortunately, it’s difficult to obtain authentic legal documents of refugees from war torn nations, so it will be hard to determine how closely related they are.
Do you think Omar lied to help her brother obtain a visa, or do you think she had another reason for her sham marriage?
