Ilhan Omar is one of the most controversial Democrats in Congress.
The Somali Muslim has found herself at the middle of several ugly scandals.
But this disturbing sex scandal could spell her doom.
Ever since her campaign, allegations dogged Omar that she married her brother in a move to commit immigration fraud.
The Star Tribune reported:
Omar married Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in 2009 in Hennepin County, but she identifies a different man, Ahmed Hirsi, as her husband in campaign literature.
The discrepancy led to a raft of speculation on conservative news and websites — beginning with a popular site called Power Line — about whether she had married Elmi solely to help him with his immigration status and whether he may have been a relative, perhaps even her brother.
According to her statement, although Omar never was legally married to Hirsi, they had an Islamic marriage that ended in 2008 when they reached “an impasse in our life together.”
This is the latest scandal to cloud her career in Congress.
Her first weeks were dominated by anti-Semitic tweets from her past as well as her explanations for them – which raised even more questions about her bigotry toward Jews.
Then she began to side with the socialist government in Venezuela even though it was obvious to all that it only clung to power through sham elections and corrupt bribes to top military officials.
Now, many Americans want answers about possible immigration fraud.
But as long she refuses to provide documentary evidence that knocks down these rumors, suspicions that she broke the law will hover over her career.
