The Curious Case of Ilhan Omar

We shouldn't really be surprised.


In early August, 33-year-old Ilhan Omar became an overnight sensation in Minnesota politics. Her primary victory over 22-term incumbent Phyllis Kahn secured the Minnesota Democratic Farmer Labor Party (DFL) endorsement of Omarís candidacy to represent House District 60B in the state legislature.

Minneapolisís Star Tribune trumpeted Omarís victory in a huge headline on its front page, proclaiming that the Somali immigrantís victory had ďmade history.Ē The paper followed up with two more retrospective stories admiring Omarís triumph.

Omarís victory shouldnít have come as a surprise. She campaigned hard in the district, which includes the heart of the Cedar Riverside area now known as Little Mogadishu. Omarís third DFL primary opponent was Somali, as is her Republican challenger (who has since suspended his campaign). The Star Tribune nonetheless portrayed the win as a remarkable accomplishment, not only because Omar defeated Kahn, who is tied for the longest-serving legislator in state history, but also because of Omarís background. She spent time in a Kenyan refugee camp before settling in the Twin Cities in the late 1990s.

As many candidates do, Omar has made her personal background an integral part of her campaign. But neither the candidate nor the reporters who covered her have shown much interest in exploring one aspect of her personal story that recently came to public attention: the fact that she is not legally married to the man she advertises as the husband and the father of her three children.

In fact, she is legally married to another manówho may be her brother. A posting on the SomaliSpot discussion board alleged that Omar had married the man touted as her husband in 2002 before marrying her brother for fraudulent purposes in 2009. The post, which seems to have been written by someone from Minneapolisís Somali community, was quickly deleted. By the time it came to my attention, the post was only available via a Google cache (now also deleted). If the story is true, however, it suggests that Omar had engaged in some kind of dishonest activity in connection with her marriage to her brother (which by itself would be illegal).

"Little Mogadishu"


Nice country we have. Anyone willing to go fight and die in Iraq or Afghan so "little Mogadishu" back home is safe, is a goddamn idiot.

Not much of a source. A deleted post on a message board.

Very poignant article from 2016

She is going to run for Ellisons seat-along with about 200 others.

But Omar, who was elected in 2016, also has the least legislative and political experience of the four DFL candidates who have served in the statehouse. Sen. Bobby Joe Champion was elected to the state Legislature a decade ago, serving first in the House; Sen. Patricia Torres Ray was elected in 2007; and former House Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher served for about a dozen years at the statehouse.
The endorsing convention is over. All and others will be running in a primary.

It'll become an issue if she has to run for anything outside of her insular little state house district.

The local media wouldn't touch this story with a 39.5 foot pole, but City Journal has done yeoman work on it. (Along with the guys at Powerline) If it becomes a run for a national office then national new-media outlets will do the job.

The Arabs were fortunate that the Byzantine Empire and the Persians were exhausted from their long war.

Unfortunately, for billions of people, the Arabs took advantage.

But yet, Ryano says they're welcome here. No bans, just welcome (prayer) mats. "That's not who we are!"


Bushman loved em too. Did you know Muslim immigration skyrocketed AFTER 9/11? Not even kidding

State Board Orders Ilhan Omar to Reimburse Campaign for Misspent Funds

Representative Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) spent thousands of dollars of campaign funds on personal expenses in 2016 and 2017 when she was serving in the Minnesota state legislature, the state’s Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board revealed Thursday.

The board ordered Omar to reimburse her former campaign committee for $3,500 in personal accounting and travel expenses, and levied a $500 civil penalty against her for misspending the funds.

The questionable joint filings (and possible fraud marriage to her brother) are probably the big news, but this matters, too.
