From The Mixed-Up Files Of Rep. Ilhan Omar

PowerLine

Excerpt:

The story of Ilhan Omarís joint tax filings with a man to whom she was not married while she was married to another man (assuming that marriage wasnít void) is a big story. Omar is a national figure. The story reveals illegal conduct on Omarís part. It raises related issues including the treatment of her marriage to Ahmed Nur Said Elmi as a sham.

Omar has issued a vacuous statement regarding her illegal tax filings and refused to respond to questions from the Star Tribune (Patrick Condon and Patrick Coolican), WCCO 4 (Esme Murphy), and Power Line (me). Itís an approach that has always worked for her in the past. Why not now? Itís a good bet that it will so long as it remains in the hands of the local media. No offense intended, but their laziness, stupidity, and knotted-up political correctness cannot be overestimated.

For the record, this is Omarís statement as reported by Patrick Condon in his first story on the board order: ďIím glad this process is complete and that the Campaign Finance Board has come to a resolution on this matter. We have been collaborative in this process and are glad the report showed that none of the money was used for personal use, as was initially alleged.Ē

Condon leaves it at that. Given the board order, I cannot fathom what it is supposed to mean. It is blatantly false. That is why she was ordered to reimburse her campaign committee.

In the Star Tribune follow-up story, Condon and Patrick Coolican provide this statement from Omar on the 2014 and 2015 joint tax returns: ďAll of Rep. Omarís tax filings are fully compliant with all applicable tax law[.]Ē Formulated in the present tense, the statement avoids the underlying facts. Condon and Coolican report that Omar declined an interview request and ďthe campaign did not furnish copies of the tax returns in question.Ē

The Star Tribune has let the story ride since the (June 8) Condon/Coolican story. This is a major story. Dogged pursuit of a major story this is not.

The story came to light thanks to the investigation of Omarís 2016 campaign for the state legislature. The Minnesota campaign finance board found that Omar misused campaign funds for personal purposes. The joint tax filings came to light in the investigation. Their story raises straightforward questions that Omar, in her accustomed style, declines to address.

So Omar married her (real, biological) brother in order to get a green card, but filed taxes jointly with a guy she was having (unmarried) sex with .... is that about right?

Toss in the hijab and the accent, and you've got all the necessary ingredients for a successful soap opera!

Wouldn't she be stone in her home country for this? Seems she should appreciate America a little more, IMO.
