Somalia community leader: Ilhan Omar married her brother and said she would ‘do what she had to do to get him “papers” to keep him in U.S.’

From Daily Mail: ‘Squad’ congresswoman Ilhan Omar told friends years ago that the man who went on to become her second husband was in fact her brother, DailyMail.com can confirm.

And now for the first time one of those friends has come forward to reveal exactly how Omar and Ahmed Elmi scandalized the Somali community in Minneapolis.

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.

But hardly anyone realized that meant marrying him.

Osman’s revelations are sure to renew calls for an investigation into the Minnesota freshman representative who has repeatedly refused to answer questions on her marriage to Elmi.

She originally said the idea that the spouses were also siblings were ‘baseless, absurd rumors’, accusing journalists of Islamophobia, but has since stayed quiet.

Her spokesman told DailyMail.com that Omar, 37, does not comment on her family or personal life. ‘The Congresswoman is focused on the work her constituents sent her to Washington to accomplish,’ he said.

Omar married her first husband Hirsi in 2002 in a Muslim ceremony that, like many in the immigrant community, was not registered with the state. Their first child Isra was born the following year and a second followed.

But in the late 2000s Elmi appeared in Minneapolis, said Osman, who referred to Hirsi by his nickname ‘Southside’ throughout the interview. ‘People began noticing that Ilhan and Southside (Hirsi) were often with a very effeminate young guy,’ Osman said, who spoke in Somali through an interpreter.

‘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. So they sent him to Minneapolis as ”rehab”.’

Osman, who runs a popular Facebook blog called Xerta Shekh, which comments on Somali issues, said that Omar kept her marriage to Elmi quiet, with no one from the Somali community invited to the wedding. He explained: ‘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. ‘I would say there were 100-150 people there.’

But, he said: ‘When she married Elmi, no one even knew about it.’

Osman said at the time Hirsi was better known than Omar among Somalis. ‘He was a footballer, he promoted a lot of Somali shows, he was very popular. ‘So the scandal was about [Hirsi’s] brother-in-law more than Ilhan’s brother.’

It has long been rumored that Omar and Elmi are brother and sister. But because of a lack of paperwork in war-torn Somalia where they were both born, positive proof of their relationship has never been uncovered.

Minnesota House race: Democrat Muslim Ilhan Omar is a bigamist who married her brother

Minnesota state legislator Ilhan Omar, a Democrat and a Somali Muslim, currently leads the race to fill the federal House seat being vacated by Rep. Keith Ellison, also a Democrat Muslim.

Immediately after being elected to her current seat in 2016, Omar faced allegations — soon backed by a remarkable amount of evidence — that she had married her own brother in 2009. (They officially divorced in December 2017.)

Omar said she had married “British citizen” Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in 2009, but that the allegation that he is her brother is “absurd and offensive.”

Now, David Steinberg of PJ Media has found “exclusive” new evidence — from official archived high school records and corroborating sources — that strongly supports the claim that Ahmed Nur Said Elmi is Ilhan Omar’s brother.

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 — the same date of birth for Omar’s husband, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, in both Omar’s 2009 marriage documents and her 2017 divorce proceedings.

Steinberg conducted an extensive background search, but did not find any other person named “Ahmed Nur Said Elmi,” “Ahmed N. Elmi,” or “Ahmed Elmi” with the birthdate April 4, 1985. Omar’s husband and the boy who attended Arlington Senior High School in St. Paul, MN are one and the same.

Steinberg contacted several members of the Class of 2003, and was told that Ahmed Elmi “was living with his father” while attending Arlington Senior High School. Elmi’s father was the same man Ilhan Omar has always publicly referred to as her own father: Nur Said Elmi Mohamed.

Here is Mohamed’s Facebook account, where he refers to himself as Nur Said.

Steinberg emailed Rep. Ilhan Omar, the MN Democratic Party (DFL) chairman, and the MN DFL CD-5 chairman, asking for their comment.

No one responded, but Omar intimated in a tweet that “the Republican/right-wing propaganda machines” are behind the allegations she had committed incest by marrying her brother.

Steinberg writes:

The motivation for the marriage [to her brother] remains unclear. However, the totality of the evidence points to possible immigration fraud and student loan fraud. As this implicates Rep. Omar in multiple state and federal felonies, I have contacted the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Minnesota to submit all other information uncovered during our investigation.

But Ilhan Omar didn’t just commit incest; she’s also a bigamist.

Back in August 2016, Scott Johnson of Powerline revealed that when Ilhan Omar married her brother Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in 2009, she was still married to Ahmed Hirsi, whom she’d married in 2002 and with whom she had three children. Johnson wrote:

Inputting the name Ilhan Omar, I have confirmed both marriages as noted in the Somalispot post via the online Minnesota Official Marriage System….

Minnesota law defines bigamy as “knowingly having a prior marriage that is not dissolved” while also “contract[ing] a marriage in this state.” Bigamy is a crime punishable by up to five years in prison or a fine up to $10,000. The definition and penalty provisions of the crime of bigamy are set forth in Minn. Stat. § 609.355.
