After several years of avoiding the subject — on Tuesday the Minneapolis Star-Tribune published a report on Ilhan Omar, her tax fraud crimes, her illegal use of campaign funds to cover travel costs and touched on her alleged marriage to her younger brother.
Investigative Journalist David Steinberg who has been covering the incredible story for years commented on the report today.
Much of the information has already been reported… by David.
Ben is correct.
Worse, it seems the @StarTribune made a perfectly irrational decision here: To try to rebuild trust with readers by:
1) Whitewashing its 3 years of failure on Omar, and
2) Not crediting the 3 reporters whose work they essentially steal here. https://t.co/hXKFnoQElJ

The Star-Tribune reported that the Omar campaign launched a concerted effort to quash details on her marriage to her brother.
Obviously, Omar is afraid of the information on her wedding to her brother in 2009 to go public.
The Gateway Pundit was sent several updates on Ilhan’s story in the past two days. Our sources are hesitant to go public due to concerns of retribution from certain segments in the US Somali community.
What is interesting is that as Ilhan continues to deny her marriage to her brother there is clear evidence that she is lying.
As we reported on Tuesday the birth date of her husband-brother on the wedding certificate matches the birth date on her brother’s school papers.
A TGP source in the Somaliland and Somali community sent us this information this week.
The story about Ilhan marrying her brother is well known and is a very common thing among Somali people in the diaspora. Ilhan had a child with her real husband while married to her brother to get him US residency and ultimately obtain US citizenship. This is clear example of someone who does not respect the laws of this country and probably thinks that the Sharia marriage with her actual husband is the one that counts.
Her brother is a bit of an issue for bigots in both our clan and the Somali community. His lifestyle was so troublesome for her support from the Somali community, that he was made to relocate back to Europe, somewhere in England I believe. Ilhan bills herself as a progressive to to one side, and conservative to the other.
You can see how the issue of her brother’s lifestyle was an issue for her during her election. In case her brother’s sexuality is not well known, he is gay.
Brother Elmi follows several gay personalities on Instagram including: gaymenonthego, queeringsomalinimo, and how-gay-Iam:
Here are a few from his list who he follows.
Obviously, The Gateway Pundit does not have an issue with her brother’s sexuality and support his courage. The Gateway Pundit founder is gay and we have had several writers who are gay.
But this does add more fodder to the reports that Ilhan’s marriage to her brother was a sham and a scam on the US immigration system.
