Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) was just caught red-handed. She quickly deleted a tweet, but not before it could be saved and spread around the internet. A ‘true name’ has been revealed.
“Happy Father’s Day to my aabo Nur Said, I am forever grateful to Allah for giving me the best father,” read the tweet, in part. As readers know, Omar has come under scrutiny for her former marriage to Ahmed Nur Said Elmi.
Omar hasn’t been able to escape questions about her past — namely the alleged immigration fraud resulting from her marriage to Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, which many say allowed him to enter the U.S. under false pretenses.
Does Omar’s tweet prove with 100% certainty that she was once married to her brother? No. However, this is yet another connection that cannot be ignored, due to the shared “Nur Said” name of both men.
Either she deleted the tweet because it was setting off a firestorm, or she is trying to hide something. But journalists and political operatives are quick to take screenshots of damning social media posts, knowing they could be removed.
Omar has explaining to do; she cannot escape the questions much longer. Eventually, she will have nowhere to turn after exhausting her legal options and political energy.
