New Photos Corroborate Perjury Claims Against Rep. Ilhan Omar, as She Deletes Social Media Evidence

David Steinberg, PJ Media, November 5, 2018

On Tuesday, one-term state Representative Ilhan Omar (D-60B) appears likely to replace the outgoing Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) by winning Minnesota’s pre-eminent House seat: CD-5.

In October, however, the Minnesota Campaign Finance Board opened a formal investigation of her after reviewing evidence of several violations. {snip}


In 2016, an anonymous writer on published verified photos and Minnesota state records suggesting that Rep. Omar is a serial felon and fraudster.

Since then, the additional evidence discovered to back these claims — and the absence of contradictory evidence — are almost as remarkable as Minnesota media’s refusal to lift a finger investigating her for two years.


Allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar center around her 2009-2017 marriage to a British citizen named Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, who appears to be her brother. Omar is alleged to have married Elmi in the service of federal felonies: immigration fraud and student loan fraud. (While the latter may seem comparably minor, the penalties for a falsified FAFSA are severe: a $20,000 fine and up to five years in prison. Also, a falsified FAFSA implicates the accused in years of subsequent fraudulent filings with the IRS.) Additionally, there is evidence of state felonies: marriage fraud, and multiple instances of perjury during her 2009 marriage filings and her 2017 divorce proceedings.

The Backstory

Just months after getting married in Minnesota in 2009, Rep. Omar and Ahmed Elmi moved to Fargo, North Dakota. They both enrolled at North Dakota State University.

They both attended NDSU between 2009 and 2011. And that — according to Rep. Omar herself — was effectively the end of the marriage.

{snip} During her 2017 divorce proceedings, Rep. Omar swore under penalty of perjury that she never again had contact with Ahmed Elmi after June 2011. She filed for a default divorce, attesting that she could not locate Elmi to serve him the papers.


However, Rep. Omar — per her own statement — had married another man, Ahmed Hirsi, by Islamic ceremony in 2002. And publicly available address records show that Ahmed Hirsi also moved to North Dakota from 2009 until 2011.


All three, in fact — Omar, Hirsi, and Elmi — are recorded to have been living together in North Dakota at the same address in 2009. All three are then recorded as living together at a second North Dakota address in 2010-2011.

Then, Rep. Omar herself — perhaps in a moment of carelessness — admitted to a reporter in 2013 that Hirsi and their two children were living with her as she attended NDSU.

To summarize: There is zero evidence that Omar ever separated from Ahmed Hirsi. But there is evidence in the form of: 1) publicly available records, and 2) Rep. Omar’s own admission, that Omar has lived with Hirsi without interruption for 16 years.

New Evidence of Repeated Perjury, and a Family Relationship

After originally being exposed in 2016, Rep. Omar deleted evidence from her social media accounts that appeared to show her visiting a man named Ahmed N. Elmi in London in 2015. This was evidence that she had perjured herself by swearing to have never contacted him beyond June 2011. Omar also deleted evidence that showed her contacting him regularly on social media.


When reached by reporter Preya Samsundar of Minnesota outlet AlphaNewsMN, Elmi admitted to being the man in those London photos with Rep. Omar. However, he claimed to not know the woman next to him in the pictures — despite having the same name and exact birthdate of the man she married, and having been the only Ahmed Elmi to ever attend NDSU.


In her prior purge of incriminating evidence, Rep. Omar failed to delete this post, which is still live as of this article’s publication. “IlhanMN” is Rep. Omar’s verified campaign account. In the post, she exchanges messages with “AhmedNElmi”.
