Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar Fined for Violating Campaign Finance Laws; Questions about Alleged Marriage to Brother

Surely you have all seen this news, but as I started to pull my round-up together for last week (yes, I am late!), I realized I need to post this more prominently even if most of you have seen the latest installment of Ilhan’s exciting life.

And, I am posting it because she casually mentions that she followed Muslim law when she married hubby number one. 

This is how Sharia creep works! Many people will just say ‘well, okay.’  (See my post yesterday.)

The version of the story I’m using about Omar’s financial shenanigans is from the UK Daily Mail and I mention that because although this story was everywhere, the Daily Mail is often the first place you will read news deemed politically incorrect by the snooty and biased US media.

From the Daily Mail,

 

Rep. Ilhan Omar is fined for repeatedly violating Minnesota campaign finance rules by improperly using funds for personal travel and for a lawyer to make corrections to her tax returns

 

Democrat congresswoman Ilhan Omar has been fined for a violation of state campaign finance rules, in part due to expenditures that arose in response to unproven claims that she was once married to her brother.

The Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board published its findings on Thursday, ordering Omar to personally reimburse her own campaign account $3,469.23 and to pay a civil penalty of $500 for violating state campaign finance rules.

The violations date back to Omar’s time as a representative in the Minnesota state House in 2016 and 2017, and the reimbursement amount represents spending of campaign funds that the board says were not allowed by state law.

That includes a payment of $1,500 her campaign made to a law firm following the formation of a ‘crisis committee’ in August 2016 to respond to allegations that Omar ‘married to her brother as part of an immigration scheme,’ according to the board’s report.

[….]

Omar, a Somali immigrant and naturalized U.S. citizen who has been legally married twice in the U.S., has in the past vehemently denied claims that she was formerly married to her brother, an allegation that appears to have emerged on a Somali online discussion board and was spread by conservative blogs.

According to marriage records in Minnesota’s Hennepin County, Omar applied for a license in 2002 to marry her current husband, Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi, who Omar says went by Ahmed Abdisalan Aden at the time. [Why did he change his name?—ed]

Records show a marriage certificate wasn’t issued and Omar has said they didn’t pursue a civil marriage but instead married in their Muslim ‘faith tradition.’ [Sharia creep! Following Islamic Law!—ed]

Omar then legally married Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, whom she said is a British citizen, on February 12, 2009, according to a marriage certificate issued in Hennepin County.

Conservative online sites have alleged that Elmi is Omar’s brother and she married him to commit immigration fraud in the form of providing him a quicker path to U.S. citizenship.

Omar alleges and the Daily Mail reports that birth certificates and other family documentation is not available because Somalia is a chaotic hell hole!

However….

Omar is from a family of US State Department resettled REFUGEES, therefore there is all sorts of documentation about the children that her father reported are his and brought to America with him, or subsequently claimed are his and brought in through the P-3 family reunification program. 

Is Elmi one of them? Yes, or no? 

Here is my guess:  First know that the US suspended family reunification for Somalis in 2008 (and closed that pipeline for several years thereafter) when the State Department discovered widespread fraud where Somalis in the US were claiming all sorts of assorted Somalis were their family members.  By the way, there was no effort made to seek out and deport any of the thousands of Somali ‘family members’ who got into the US by lying.

Elmi may have been in a pipeline to come in through Omar’s father as a ‘son.’  When that door closed, marriage to Ilhan was a useful avenue.  However, I can’t explain why he didn’t stay here once he was married.

  1. It would be a very simple matter for an HSI special agent to review the immigration file and check the validity of documents, especially ones involving marriage in the UK and the USA.

    The difficult part would be obtaining the file, if certain government officials wanted to protect Omar.

    Philosophy of Divorce Practice
    After twenty years of practice I have come to understand that when someone comes to see me for a divorce, their family was broken long before they came to my office. My job is to help heal that family by giving honest information and advice so that the family can divide into two homes. Sometimes that means I have to fight for the interests of my client or the children. Sometimes it means that I have to counsel my client to stop fighting and compromise. Often, it means both. You can trust that your best interests and my twenty years of experience motivate my advice.

    There are two kinds of divorce lawyers: those who do whatever you ask them to do and those who counsel you on what is best to do for your case. You can trust that I will tell you what you need to hear, not just what you want to hear.

    Some lawyers let their client’s walk through the system, meeting with court evaluators and testifying in Court without guidance. I work with my client’s to let go of their angry emotional response to their spouse so that they can work effectively in the court system to get what they need.

    Testimonials:

    “Dear Carla, I want to recommend your services to anyone who is in need of family law. You are someone who is absolutely in touch with all aspects of the law, and more importantly with all aspects of-the-sometimes painful and confusion jungle of emotions that go with a serious life change, like divorce.

    I can certainly say without reservation that had I not known you, my life and career would be significantly damaged due to the missteps I personally made on my road to obtaining a divorce. Your faithful guidance and strength, during some very, very dark times, enabled me to not only change my life, but it made me a better person.

    I will never be able to thank you enough for all you did for me.” —Charlie Maguire

    “Carla successfully represented me in a divorce case. I made a lot of mistakes by representing myself in the initial divorce and signed away most everything that I was legally entitled to. I was greatly intimidated by my ex husband, even after the divorce. I felt that I had no one to turn to, because no attorney would take my case. But Carla is not your average attorney. Carla worked within my budget and fought like a champion. She made certain that I understood where I made mistakes; and challenged my ex and his attorney on every level. She assisted me in recouping several of the losses I incurred, even though the original divorce decree was deemed final. With Carla as my attorney, I felt that I could stand tall again.” —Polly Meyer’

    CONCLUSION? JUST ANOTHER ILHAN OMAR – ELLISON GROOMED – SERIAL LIAR, now getting caught up in her own ‘web’..

  4. This is all so typical of the honor system that we have here in America that exists no where else because they all cheat and lie. We are so naiive. Shame on you Ann for calling Somalia a ‘chaotic hell hole’, which of course it is. Is the domino effect of evil and fraud too far gone to fix?
