Ilhan Omar keeps finding herself in trouble.
But now she is caught up in a crisis that she won’t be able to spin her way out of.
That‘s because Ilhan Omar was caught red handed in this career killing lie.
In a Washington Post puff piece about Ilhan Omar, The Post described a scene where Omar told a group of 400 children about the supposed racism and unfairness of the U.S. criminal justice system.
Omar told the children how she loudly protested in court when a women was jailed for stealing bread to feed her granddaughter.
The Daily Caller reports:
Omar, who came to the U.S. as a Somali refugee when she was a teenager, told the story as she argued that the U.S. has an unfair and unjust society, according to The Post.
Omar said that the woman spent the weekend in jail before going before a judge, where she received an $80 fine, which she was unable to pay.
“I couldn’t control my emotions,” Omar told the students, “because I couldn’t understand how a roomful of educated adults could do something so unjust.”
“Bullshit!” she said she yelled at the woman’s court hearing.
When The Post pointed out to Omar that this was the exact plot of the popular Broadway play Les Miserables, Omar admitted she was making the whole thing up.
“She might have had a prior [arrest],” Omar responded. “I’m not sure,” she continued, adding that “the details might not have all matched, but that’s what I remember.”
Minnesota also does not arrest shoplifters unless they have committed a violent crime.
There is simply no way Omar was telling the truth.
That also means the lies from Omar are piling up.
Omar stands accused of lying about marrying her brother to commit immigration fraud and lying on her tax returns about her marital status.
This lie will add fuel to the fire that Omar cannot be trusted and that her denials of wrongdoing in her marriage and tax fraud scandals do not hold up.
