Heinous crime or horrible smear?

Either way... this certainly bears further investigation...

Minnesota state Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-60B) has stated that she did marry "British citizen" Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in 2009, though the allegation that he is her brother is "absurd and offensive." Exclusive new evidence -- from official archived high school records and corroborating sources -- strongly supports the claim that Ahmed Nur Said Elmi is indeed her brother.

The motivation for the marriage remains unclear. However, the totality of the evidence points to possible immigration fraud and student loan fraud.

As this implicates Rep. Omar in multiple state and federal felonies, I have contacted the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Minnesota to submit all other information uncovered during our investigation.
**********

RELATED: Let's ask local jourhalists...
The timing of Omar’s 2009 marriage to Elmi nearly coincides with the 2007-2008 scandal surrounding the Somalian community in which the FBI revealed that many young Somali men were leaving the U.S. to fight for the terrorist organization al-Shabaab.

An additional scandal rocked the Somalian community in Minnesota in 2008 when the U.S. Department of State discovered widespread fraud in one of its largest programs for admissions to America, the so-called P-3 family reunification program.

There have been at least 29 homicides in long-term care homes in Ontario in the past six years, a health-care advocacy group said Monday. “The level of homicide in Ontario’s long-term care facilities is higher than virtually anywhere else in our society,” Ontario Health Coalition executive director Natalie Mehra said.
