People don’t like to discuss their personal lives in public, much less when multiple divorces and children are involved. Even in public life, there ought to remain a reasonable amount of privacy when it comes to a purely intimate matter. But red flags about the two or three marriages of Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., have now produced evidence of lawbreaking.
It’s time to start asking questions.
The article goes on to state the following:
The first question of public interest is whether Omar violated federal tax law. In 2014 and 2015, she filed her taxes jointly with a man named Ahmed Hirsi. She was legally married to another man, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, at the time.
Omar’s marital history is complicated, to say the least. In 2002, Hennepin County marriage records showthat Omar applied for a marriage license with Hirsi, according to the Associated Press, and Omar said that while “we never finalized the application and thus were never legally married,” they married in a “faith tradition.” Omar and Hirsi had two children and ended their relationship in 2008.
On Feb. 12, 2009, Omar legally married Elmi, a British citizen.
This is where things get dicey. Omar says that she and Elmi divorced in their faith tradition in 2011. In a public statement, Omar said that “since 2011” she and Hirsi reconciled, and according to the local outlet Twin Cities, Hennepin County records say that she and Hirsi reconciled in 2012. Omar had her third child, Ilwad Hirsi, in June of 2012, implying that she and Hirsi must have reconciled in 2011.
