A friend of Ilhan Omar has gone on the record claiming that Omar married her brother so that he could get into a school in America.
Omar is refusing to answer any questions about the accusations against her, with her spokesperson saying that she doesn't answer questions about her personal life.
Pretty convenient, huh?
Here's more from the Daily Wire:
A member of the Somali community in Minneapolis who says they are a friend of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has gone on the record to claim that Omar married her brother to get him the papers he needed to go to school in the U.S.
“Abdihakim Osman is the first person to go on record to speak of how Omar said she wanted to get her brother papers so he could stay in the United States, at a time when she was married to her first husband Ahmed Hirsi,” The Daily Mail reported.
“People began noticing that Ilhan and Southside (Hirsi) were often with a very effeminate young guy [Ahmed Elmi],’ Osman said. “He was very feminine in the way he dressed — he would wear light lipstick and pink clothes and very, very, short shorts in the summer. People started whispering about him.”
“[Hirsi] and Ilhan both told me it was Ilhan’s brother and he had been living in London but he was mixing with what were seen as bad influences that the family did not like,”Osman continued. “So they sent him to Minneapolis as ‘rehab’.”
“She said she needed to get papers for her brother to go to school. We all thought she was just getting papers together to allow him to stay in this country,” Osman continued. “Once she had the papers they could apply for student loans. They both moved to North Dakota to go to school but she was still married to [Hirsi]. In the Somali way, the only marriage that mattered was the one in the mosque.”
“When [Hirsi] and Ilhan got married, a lot of people were invited. It was a big Islamic wedding uniting two large clans in the Minneapolis community,” Osman added. “When she married Elmi, no one even knew about it.”
If that's not troubling, I'm not sure what it.
Authorities are currently looking into the accusations against Omar.
If she's found guilty, things are going to be looking good for her.
