New Photos Corroborate Perjury Claims Against Rep. Ilhan Omar, as She Deletes Social Media Evidence

On Tuesday, one-term state Representative Ilhan Omar (D-60B) appears likely to replace the outgoing Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) by winning Minnesota's pre-eminent House seat: CD-5.

In October, however, the Minnesota Campaign Finance Board opened a formal investigation of her after reviewing evidence of several violations. Omar has also made, and defended, anti-Semitic comments as direct and vicious as any spoken by a U.S. politician in a generation.

Yet those legal and character matters may only be secondary red flags.

In 2016, an anonymous writer on SomaliSpot.com published verified photos and Minnesota state records suggesting that Rep. Omar is a serial felon and fraudster.

Since then, the additional evidence discovered to back these claims -- and the absence of contradictory evidence -- are almost as remarkable as Minnesota media's refusal to lift a finger investigating her for two years.

The above two-page document was signed and filed under penalty of perjury by Rep. Ilhan Omar in 2017. Omar had filed for a default divorce from Ahmed Nur Said Elmi: a default divorce can occur when one spouse attests to be unable to locate the other spouse on whom to serve the papers. (Both documents above are available to the public, as MN divorce proceedings are public record. The documents were photographed by PJ Media at the MN Family Court Records Center.)

Allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar center around her 2009-2017 marriage to a British citizen named Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, who appears to be her brother. Omar is alleged to have married Elmi in the service of federal felonies: immigration fraud and student loan fraud. (While the latter may seem comparably minor, the penalties for a falsified FAFSA are severe: a $20,000 fine and up to five years in prison. Also, a falsified FAFSA implicates the accused in years of subsequent fraudulent filings with the IRS.) Additionally, there is evidence of state felonies: marriage fraud, and multiple instances of perjury during her 2009 marriage filings and her 2017 divorce proceedings.

The Backstory

Just months after getting married in Minnesota in 2009, Rep. Omar and Ahmed Elmi moved to Fargo, North Dakota. They both enrolled at North Dakota State University.

They both attended NDSU between 2009 and 2011. And that -- according to Rep. Omar herself -- was effectively the end of the marriage.

See the documents posted above: During her 2017 divorce proceedings, Rep. Omar swore under penalty of perjury that she never again had contact with Ahmed Elmi after June 2011. She filed for a default divorce, attesting that she could not locate Elmi to serve him the papers.

Without context, a brief marriage to a foreign national which begins and ends while both spouses attend the same university is not necessarily worth investigating.

However, Rep. Omar -- per her own statement -- had married another man, Ahmed Hirsi, by Islamic ceremony in 2002. And publicly available address records show that Ahmed Hirsi also moved to North Dakota from 2009 until 2011.
