Skip to comments.Rep. Ilhan Omar Stonewalling Hometown Paper on Marriage Controversy, Editor Says

Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar has allegedly been uncooperative with her hometown papers efforts to get to the bottom of accusations that she committed marriage fraud, the papers political editor said.
Omars brief congressional career has been dogged by accusations which she has denied that she married a male relative, possibly her brother. Omar and her current husband, Ahmed Hirsi, filed joint tax returns while Omar was married to another man, Ahmed Elmi, Minnesota campaign finance officials said.
Omar and her family have made it difficult for journalists to find out the truth about her marriage, Minnesota Star-Tribune editor Kevin Diaz told PolitiFact in an interview Thursday.
Our public records searches determined that in at least one period after she married Elmi, all three (Omar, Elmi and Hirsi) used the same address in Minnesota. It raises questions about the nature of the relationship if she is living with both the person shes married to and her eventual husband, Diaz said.
Whats really made it hard is that shes been unwilling to address any of these questions. That has fueled the controversy. We quoted her at length to say that these were mere accusations, that they were unfair, and that she shouldnt have to address them. Be that as may, there was an undisputed instance of her filing her taxes improperly. And if youre in Congress, you should explain that to your constituents, he continued.
Weve asked her these questions, and also asked her to make her father available. Weve tried to reach Elmi. Weve tried to reach her sisters. Her family could put this (the question of Elmis relationship to Omar) to rest easily. No one will talk to us. I wish we could send a reporter to Mogadishu (Somalia) but we dont have the bandwidth, ...

As I have said before:
Married to her brother? If so...
Then she would no longer be Ilhan Omar.
She would be Mentally Ilhan Omar.
Another UK brother. One she didn’t marry
I want to know why the Omars who sponsored Ilhan into the country aren’t front and center. Is there anything on them when she was elected?????? Where are all the interviews
She is a con artist. She was just gaming the system.
Maybe so, but...
Waiting for some sort of hidden proof that can’t be shown because muzzie.
Elmi refuses to admit he knows Ilhan Omar despite admitting it is him in the photo with her husband and sister.
There is so much internet scrubbing going on I really do wonder if someone in their family is a war criminal.
You mean to tell me that the paper is actually trying to report it instead of actively covering it up like they have been doing since she first ran for office at the state level?
Maybe she’s General Muhammad Adi Skyhook’s daughter
Here is what I think happened: This Somali woman Congressman pretended to be a member of a family named “Omar” in order to immigrate into the US. That was an act of fraud and was illegal. She did not use her real name to immigrate and lied about her family relationship with the Omar clan.
At some point she married her pretend brother named “Omar”. I don’t understand her motivation, but it appears she committed tax fraud by claiming to be the wife (for filing joint income tax 1040’s) of two different men at the same time. She may actually have been married to two men at the same time.
She now refuses to answer questions about this. I think they are closing in on the truth about her immigration status and she will soon be issuing statements through her lawyer.
Yeah. I often do the same when caught dead to rights in a felony.
There does seem to be a race going on to cover up something.
Better late than...
But even if not, this can now be used against Omar to ensure her defeat in 2020.
Ahmed looks like her. I think he is a relative.
The brother Mohammed in the UK doesn’t look like her in my opinion. he has a huge forehead. But I admit I am not good at when people look like relatives.
I thinkoriginal Omars only agreed to take in so many relatives. Maybe there was a legal limit. Maybe Nur Said didnt pay enough. Who knows. They are mysteriously quiet.
Then other parts of the family went to the UK.THat is why they aren’t listed on the papers Omar waves around.
Technically, Omar’s sister could be the mother of Ahmed. He calls her Mum...but probably sister.
