Elder Patriot’s Opinion| Steve Drazkowski is a member of the Minnesota House of Representatives. Drazkowski joined Tucker Carlson on Wednesday night where he confirmed blockbuster charges against U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar that have been circulating for some time.
Drazkowski accused Rep. Ilhan Omar with having been married to her brother while filing joint Federal tax returns with a second man.
In August of 2018, a full three months before she was elected to Congress, investigative reporter David Steinberg was largely ignored by the media when he presented evidence that Omar had married her brother.
According to Steinberg, “that allegation has been public for nearly two years without Omar addressing its specific foundations.”
Steinberg, who supports his claims with pictures and official documents, then added this:
“Newly uncovered evidence — exclusively published below — adds another allegation: Ilhan Omar has since signed off on apparent falsehoods, under penalty of perjury, during her 2017 divorce from the man in question: Ahmed Nur Said Elmi.”
In 2016, two Minnesota journalists — Scott Johnson of Powerline and Preya Samsundar of AlphaNewsMN — researched an anonymous tip about Ilhan Omar. The tipster had presented evidence that Omar married her brother in 2009, and was still legally his wife as of 2016. The tipster had also asserted that Omar may have done it to help her brother commit immigration fraud. Further, the tipster had noted that Omar has been “culturally” married to, and living with, a second man since 2002 — the father of her three children.
Simple online searches of public civil records and social media immediately proved parts of the story to be true.
Samsundar discovered additional compelling evidence, and even managed to get in touch with the apparent husband/brother, who currently lives in London. He proceeded to talk himself into a pickle trying to answer Samsundar’s questions.
For doing their jobs admirably, Johnson and Samsundar were subsequently labeled “Islamophobes” and bigots. Omar’s own representatives lashed out with such comments.
The Minneapolis Star-Tribune and “alternative weekly” City Pages — though they certainly “followed up” on the story — offered minimal effort beyond publishing official comments from Omar’s campaign. After first blaming anti-Muslim bigotry, Omar changed tactics by offering an eyebrow-raising statement that left specific evidence and accusations unaddressed.
