‘Squad’ congresswoman Ilhan Omar told friends years ago that the man who went on to become her second husband was in fact her brother, DailyMail.com can confirm.
And now for the first time one of those friends has come forward to reveal exactly how Omar and Ahmed Elmi scandalized the Somali community in Minneapolis.
The article goes on to state the following:
Abdihakim Osman is the first person to go on record to speak of how Omar said she wanted to get her brother papers so he could stay in the United States, at a time when she was married to her first husband Ahmed Hirsi.
The Daily Mail reported that Osman said, “No one knew there had been a wedding until the media turned up the marriage certificate years later.”
In 2002, Omar married Hirsi in a large Muslim ceremony, but their marriage was not legally registered with the state. The couple had two children together, then Elmi showed up, Osman reported explained.
Osman further revealed:
“He was very feminine in the way he dressed — he would wear light lipstick and pink clothes and very, very, short shorts in the summer. People started whispering about him.
“[Hirsi] and Ilhan both told me it was Ilhan’s brother and he had been living in London but he was mixing with what were seen as bad influences that the family did not like. So they sent him to Minneapolis as ”rehab”.”
Osman said no one in the Somali community realized Omar had actually married Elmi. She later divorced him, and remarried Hirsi.
The Daily Mail noted that positive proof of the relationship between Omar and Elmi has never been uncovered, due to the lack of paperwork from Somalia, where they were both born.
The Daily Mail noted that Osman runs a popular Facebook blog called Xerta Shekh, which comments on Somali issues. Thursday afternoon, Osman posted a link to the article, along with the following statement:
Translation: “Somalis in Minnesota are very afraid of ilhan omar and her team and they can’t speak and they can’t tell the truth all somalis know that ilhan her brother has taken a false marriage to the law but I don’t forget the truth no one is afraid of daily mail and I told them everything Telling is true read.”
In another video post, he added, according to a translation: “Ilhan Omar team is very sorry for the report I gave daily mail and power line blog threat I am not afraid of it.”
Omar is now divorced from Hirsi.
