Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar can’t stay out of trouble.
On top of horrible anti-Semitic comments holding her down, she has a number of legal problems.
And now she is furious after Fox News dropped her biggest secret.
Ilhan Omar might hold the record for the most scandals in her first term in Congress.
The Muslim Congresswoman is constantly finding herself in trouble.
It all started with a series of anti-Semitic tweets, resulting in mass outrage.
Her tweets went so far that the former leader of the Ku Klux Klan called her the “most important member of Congress.”
But she didn’t stop there.
While speaking at an event for the Center for American Islamic Relations (CAIR), which is designated as a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates, she made insensitive comments about 9/11.
While claiming that the terrorist attack on 9/11 was used to oppress Muslims in the United States, she dismissed the attack simply as “some people” doing “something.”
The comments infuriated so many people that the New York Post put her name on the front cover of their paper, beside a picture from the 9/11 attack, and the text “This is your something.”
But while these comments are all horrific enough on their own, they are all ultimately protected by the First Amendment.
So there aren’t any legal consequences for her statements.
But that doesn’t mean she isn’t in hot water legally for other actions.
As it turns out, there are a number of illegal actions she has committed in recent years.
For one, she was caught committing campaign finance violations, which she is now facing fines over.
But in the midst of that investigation, a more serious allegation has come to light.
As it turns out, Omar has been filing joint tax returns with a man who is not her husband.
The Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board alleges that for two consecutive years she filed jointly with a man named Ahmed Hirsi, who she was living with but not married to.
She claims that she had a religious divorce with her former husband, and a religious marriage.
But under the law, religious divorces mean nothing, meaning she could be in trouble with the IRS and the state of Minnesota.
And even with that being bad enough for her, she has found a way to top this scandal.
During a segment of Watters’ World on Fox News, Jesse Watters began his segment by dropping an extreme allegation on Omar, while blasting the rest of the media for ignoring it.
“Big news coming from Washington this week that you won’t hear about in the mainstream media,” Waters said. “Allegations that Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar married her brother to circumvent immigration laws.”
That’s right; there are credible accusations that Omar married her own brother.
These allegations come from Washington Examiner contributor Tiana Lowe, who Watters had explain more in depth.
Lowe discusses social media screenshots that have since been removed that show Ahmed Elmi, who is her first husband, referring to Omar’s daughter as his niece.
“In these screenshots, Ahmed Elmi, you know the one that people are alleging is her brother, he does refer to himself as the uncle and that like her children are his nieces,” Lowe says.
If this is true, it could mean that Omar committed immigration fraud.
Do you think Omar should be investigated over this?
