Ilhan Omar is facing accusations of multiple felonies.
Now the walls are closing in on the member of the self-described “Squad.”
And this smoking gun had Ilhan Omar on the edge of her seat over getting deported.
Critics contend Ilhan Omar’s greatest area of legal exposure is her checkered marital history.
Omar was married to Ahmed Elmi in 2009.
Elmi and Omar separated in 2011 and officially divorced in 2018.
During this time, Omar was married to a man named Ahmed Hirsi in 2002 in an Islamic ceremony that was not recognized as an official marriage by the government.
Omar and Hirsi officially tied the knot in 2018.
But Omar and Hirsi split when a Washington, D.C. area doctor named Beth Mynett filed in court papers that Omar broke up her marriage by carrying on an affair with her husband Tim, whose political consulting firm Omar’s campaign hired.
Now Omar and Mynett are officially married.
The Associated Press reports, “A marriage license filed in Washington, D.C., shows Omar married political consultant Tim Mynett on Wednesday. Omar announced her new marriage Wednesday night on Instagram, with a photo of her and a bearded man smiling and displaying wedding rings. ‘Got married! From partners in politics to life partners, so blessed,’ the post says, without identifying Mynett by name.”
Even this marriage is raising questions of criminal violations as critics allege Omar violated federal campaign finance laws by tapping into campaign money to fund her affair with Tim Mynett.
“Filings with the Federal Election Commission show Omar’s campaign paid Tim Mynett or his firm nearly $600,000 since July 2018. Though it may raise eyebrows, family members, including spouses, can be on the campaign payroll as long as the family member provides services at a fair market value,” the Associated Press reported.
At least one academic expert agrees that Omar is facing serious allegations of marriage fraud and campaign finance violations that Omar must answer for.
“Remember the story began with her denying a relationship, and now she’s marrying that person,” University of Minnesota professor Larry Jacobs told the Associated Press. “I think there are legitimate questions that constituents might ask about whether Congresswoman Omar has been fully truthful in her discussion of this relationship, and the nature of her marriage to a previous husband.”
The Blaze previously reported that the FBI was investigating Omar for multiple felonies including tax, immigration and marriage fraud.
Critics believe the evidence Omar broke the law is unmistakable and that if equal justice in America is to survive, Omar must be held accountable.
The danger for Omar is the rising number of divorces and shattered relationships creates hard feelings among individuals that could step forward with damning proof that convicts Omar of these serious crimes.
If that happens, Omar could face deportation.
