DanBongino.com: Amidst various campaign finance related controversies, Ilhan Omar has also been plagued by allegations that she committed marriage fraud with her 2009 marriage to Ahmed Nur Said Elmi. Omar was engaged to Ahmed Hirsi in 2002, but had a Muslim ceremony instead of a legal marriage. They had two children together before splitting in 2008. The next year Omar legally married Elmi, who was described as a “British citizen” on their marriage license.
These allegations date back to 2016, two years before she was in the public eye running for Congress.
The FBI announced that they were investigating the allegations in January, and if true, Omar could be found guilty of a felony offense punishable with a prison sentence of up to five years and a fine of up to $250,000. It would also cost her political career. MORE
