For the last three years, various journalists and internet sleuths have searched for the “smoking gun,” a piece of evidence that ties all of the other circumstantial and contested evidence that Representative Ilhan Omar married her brother in an immigration and tax fraud scheme. They apparently didn’t search hard enough on her Twitter account until yesterday when a major piece of evidence was found.
Omar has since deleted the Tweet.
She and her team have been very good at deleting old posts that could implicate her, including posts in which her second husband and alleged brother Ahmed Nur Said Elmi referred to himself following the birth of Omar’s second child as a “proud uncle.” They even deleted the Instagram post that led to this discovery, but her Instagram page at the time was connected to her Twitter account, so the Tweet stayed even though the Instagram post was deleted.
Here is is:

In Somalia, the naming structure is given name, followed by father’s name, then grandfather’s name. Her second husband’s name, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, indicates that his father was Nur Said.
Some have said that she was referring to her husband, and that the rest of the post, which was cut off in transfer from Instagram, probably said something like, “…giving me the best father a wife could want for her children,” or something like that. But in the beginning she refers to “my aabo Nur Said.”
In Somali, “aabo” means father. She would not be referring to her husband as “my father.”
Since entering the spotlight, Omar has referred to her father as “Omar Mohammad” but there are no records to match this claim. Based on this Tweet archive, it seems clear that she was referring to a many who conspicuously shares a name with her second husband as being her father.
Glenn Beck attempted to explain this as well in the video above. A representative for Omar made an extremely feeble excuse for the post and why she deleted it.

According to her staff, she allegedly called her father “Happy Light” then later married a man whose father’s name happened to be “Happy Light.” Sorry, folks. This is a lie.
This should be seen as enough evidence for the DoJ to open an investigation into federal immigration and tax fraud. There is no way for her to squirm out of this or excuse it away based on everything else we know. She should be investigated now.
