Update: Democrat Ilhan Omar Under Investigation for Using Her Campaign Funds to Pay for Divorce from her Brother

Rep. Ilhan Omar confronted by Sinclair reporters in front of the Capitol

As reported earlier by Cristina Laila…

Muslima Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is under investigation for using her campaign funds when she was a state lawmaker to pay for her divorce.

According to Sinclair investigative reporter James Rosen, authorities have recently completed their investigation and are preparing to issue a ruling.

Two complaints against Ilhan Omar were filed last year by Republican state lawmaker Steve Drazkowski.

Sinclair’s investigative stakeout reporters approached Ilhan Omar last week as she left the Capitol and she refused to answer any questions about the alleged campaign finance violations.

Omar’s aide told Sinclair to try to schedule an interview with the lawmaker instead — as expected, Omar’s team gave Sinclair the runaround and never responded to their email inquiries.

Republican State Rep. Drazkowski complained that Omar uses her gender, religious beliefs and ethnicity, a Muslim woman from Somalia, as a shield against critics. “There’s a political fear that people have,” Drazkowski said, “of being called a name, being called a bigot, being called racist, being called Islamophobic.”

Sources exclusively told Sinclair that the campaign finance board has completed their investigation of both complaints against Ilhan Omar – one related to using funds to pay her divorce lawyer, and the other for issues related to travel expenses and will issue a ruling within the next 4 to 6 weeks.


According to her limited bio on the far left Wikipedia Ilhan Omar divorced her second husband Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in 2017.
Ahmed Nur Said Elmi is her brother. The two were married on February 12, 2009.

Ilhan Omar won a historic victory over 44-year incumbent DFL Rep. Phyllis Kahn.

Ilhan Omar built a vast coalition of East African voters to defeat the incumbent in Minneapolis.

The liberal media forgot to mention Ilhan was married to her brother.
Power Line reported:

A reader has written us to point out that the Somali website Somalispot posted information last week suggesting Omar’s involvement in marriage and immigration fraud. The post notes that Omar married Ahmed Hirsi in 2002. Hirsi is the father of Omar’s three children. Omar is depicted with Hirsi and their children on Omar’s campaign website here.

The post further notes that Omar married her brother Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in 2009, implying that the latter marriage assisted his entry into the United States. Her brother was a British citizen. “As soon as Ilhan Omar married him,” the post continues, “he started university at her [a]lma mater North Dakota State University where he graduated in 2012. Shortly thereafter, he moved to Minneapolis where he was living in a public housing complex and was later evicted. He then returned to the United Kingdom where he now lives.”

Ilhan Omar was elected to be a State Representative for District 60B November 8, 2016 and took her oath on the Quran.

In 2017, several months after Omar’s marriage history briefly created a national news item, Omar quietly petitioned family court for a default divorce, claiming she could not locate Elmi.

And now she is suspected of using campaign donations to pay for the divorce… from her brother.
