After several years of avoiding the subject — in July the Minneapolis Star-Tribune published a report on Ilhan Omar, her tax fraud crimes, her illegal use of campaign funds to cover travel costs and touched on her alleged marriage to her younger brother.
Investigative Journalist David Steinberg who has been covering the incredible story for years commented on the report.
Much of the information has already been reported… by David.
Ben is correct.
Worse, it seems the @StarTribune made a perfectly irrational decision here: To try to rebuild trust with readers by:
1) Whitewashing its 3 years of failure on Omar, and
2) Not crediting the 3 reporters whose work they essentially steal here. https://t.co/hXKFnoQElJ

The Star-Tribune reported that the Omar campaign launched a concerted effort to quash details on her marriage to her brother.
Obviously, Omar is afraid of the information on her wedding to her brother in 2009 to go public.
The Gateway Pundit was sent several updates on Ilhan’s story in the past two days. Our sources are hesitant to go public due to concerns of retribution from certain segments in the US Somali community.
What is interesting is that as Ilhan continues to deny her marriage to her brother there is clear evidence that she is lying.
The marriage certificate between her and Ahmed Nur Said Elmi has his birthdate as April 4, 1985.
David Steinberg reported at PJ Media:
According to official student enrollment records archived by St. Paul Public Schools and the state of Minnesota, an “Ahmed N. Elmi” was enrolled as a senior in the Class of 2003 at Arlington Senior High School in St. Paul, MN, from September 6, 2002, until June 10, 2003. He graduated and received a diploma.
The enrollment record states that “Ahmed N. Elmi” was born on April 4, 1985.
Both Ilhan Omar’s 2009 marriage documents and her 2017 divorce proceedings state that Ahmed Nur Said Elmi was born on April 4, 1985.
After an extensive background search, I have not been able to find any other person named “Ahmed Nur Said Elmi,” “Ahmed N. Elmi,” or even “Ahmed Elmi” with the birthdate April 4, 1985. The man Ilhan Omar married and the 17- to 18-year-old who attended Arlington Senior High School in St. Paul, MN, in 2002-2003 are one and the same.
It is also clear that her brother-husband Ahmed Nur Said Elmi has an almost identical name to her father Nur Said Elmi Mohamed.
So it is clear that Elmi is her brother and the two were married.
Ilhan divorced the brother officially in 2017.
her divorce records from her alleged brother say “dissolution with child”?

Here is the case from the Minnesota Register of Actions.
The court documents further state that she had a child with a different husband while she was married to her brother.
