Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has been exposed for marrying her brother, engaging in immigration fraud, violating federal law and being as anti-American as you can get, as well as her father and other Somali war criminals living illegally in the US. Now, we’re finding out that there is more reporting that is pointing out that the claims of her marrying her brother are strengthened by a new report from of all places, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. Seems that her wedding certificate and school records indicate her brother-husband have the same birthdate, and don’t think for a moment that is just a coincidence. And she knows it.
According to The Star-Tribune, Omar’s campaign focused a concerted effort to bury records of her marriage to her brother, which are also tied to immigration fraud.
Asked about using campaign money to take political trips, Omar said they were always approved by the Minnesota House, but then placed responsibility on her staff: “They always gave me an opinion that said, sure, this looks fine. Or at least that was my understanding that that’s what my staff was doing before they would commit me to doing anything.”
Carla Kjellberg, an attorney and political adviser during the crisis period, paints a different picture of Omar’s engagement level with details: “I did nothing, I want to make that clear, without Representative Omar’s authority. And she was in these meetings where those things were decided upon and I was directed to do that,” Kjellberg said during her own deposition.
Kjellberg declined to comment.
Campaign e-mails disclosed by the campaign finance board also show a concerted effort to quash the Elmi story. An August 2016 internal e-mail written by campaign spokesman Ben Goldfarb, a veteran DFL operative, suggested reaching out to political newsletter writer Blois Olson “and shut it down with him as we do with the Strib.”
The Star Tribune wrote about the controversy the next day under the headline, “Marriage discrepancy clouds Ilhan Omar’s historic primary victory.”
Omar expressed frustration over the controversy again last October, telling the Star Tribune in an interview that like many refugees without birth certificates, “anybody can accuse me of whatever they want and I don’t have a way to defend myself.”
David Steinberg has been covering this story for years and on Tuesday said that the Start Tribune had completely dropped the ball by three years in reporting on Omar.
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

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.
Below is the marriage certificate between Omar and Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, which shows his birthdate as April 4, 1985.
Interestingly enough Elmi has almost the same identical name as Omar’s illegal alien father, Nur Said Elmi Mohamed.
I’ll bet this gets the same play with Republicans that the usurper Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah’s ineligibility did… a ten foot pole.
