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.

Ilhan Omar splits with her husband as she heads for second divorce with father of her children

So many questions about her marital relationships, brother and taxes. Yet the congresscritter remains staunchly silent.

From Daily Mail: Leftist congresswoman Ilhan Omar and her husband – the father of her three children – have split and are heading for their second divorce, DailyMail.com has learned exclusively.

The bust-up comes just as critics are demanding answers as to whether she married her own brother in a successful bid to get him into the United States.

Omar has now dumped her current husband Ahmed Hirsi – who she first married in a religious ceremony in 2002 and divorced in 2008 – and moved into a penthouse apartment in one of Minneapolis’s trendiest neighborhoods, DailyMail.com has learned exclusively.

But Hirsi, is also spending time at the apartment, which is in the Mill District sector of Minnesota’s largest city, when she is out of town.

‘Wow,’ said Hirsi, when approached about the split by DailyMail.com outside the complex. ‘I can’t comment on that. I’m sorry, I just can’t say anything,’ he added before driving off in his BMW car.

Omar did not return calls requesting comment from DailyMail.com by deadline.

Hirsi, 39, had been seen leaving the $2,860-a-month home alone at 7:45am and returning to drop off his mother and his younger daughter nearly three hours later. ‘He only goes there when Ilhan is in DC,’ one family friend told DailyMail.com. ‘When she’s in Minneapolis he sleeps at his house.’

Hirsi was noticeably absent when Omar returned to a hero’s welcome at Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport last week after being attacked by President Donald Trump.

At the time, he was sitting morosely in a Starbucks coffee shop close to the now-overgrown home that he and Omar shared during their marriage, sources tell DailyMail.com.

Omar told supporters at the airport she would continue to be Trump’s ‘worst nightmare.’

‘His nightmare is seeing a Somali immigrant refugee rise to Congress,’ she said. ‘His nightmare is seeing the beautiful mosaic fabric of our country welcome someone like me as their member of Congress home to Minnesota.

‘He’s threatened because we are inspiring people to dream about a country that recognizes their dignity and humanity. We are going to continue to be a nightmare to this president, because his policies are a nightmare to us.’

Critics have called on the House Ethics Committee to open a case against Omar, a Democrat who was elected from Minnesota’s Fifth District — which covers Minneapolis and a few suburbs — in November.

Republican Minnesota State Representative Steve Drazkowski and the right-wing group Judicial Watch have both called for the investigation.

Drazkowski told DailyMail.com that Omar may be ‘the most crooked politician in Minnesota history. ‘She seems to have a deep and pervasive disdain for the law which is ironic given the fact that she is a United States lawmaker,’ he added. ‘Marrying your brother is a violation of the law in Minnesota.

‘Ilhan Omar has already established a lengthy and extraordinary record of legal convictions and fines,’ he said, referring to a $500 fine she was levied for campaign finance violations on top of $3,500 in donations that she had to repay. ‘This is a record upon which a House Ethics Committee should begin its investigation.

‘But first she needs to come forward and tell us the truth. She won’t even identify her own siblings at this stage.
