Rep. Drazkowski represents parts of Dodge, Goodhue, Wabasha, and Winona counties.
In a news conference at the Hennepin County Government Center on Thursday, the Mazeppa Republican pointed to poster boards showing old social media posts that appear to contradict statements Omar made while seeking a divorce from her ex-husband.
Drazkowski said Instagram posts show Omar committed perjury when she wrote in a 2017 divorce filing that she did not know the location of her then-husband, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, and had not had contact with him for years. Drazkowski said he would share the information with district court judges, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman and Attorney General Keith Ellison.
Here’s a blast from the recent past. Snopes.com, attempting to verify or refute the statement that Omar engaged in immigration fraud, suggested earlier this year that Omar is lying about her marriage history. And Snopes declared the claim that Omar committed immigration fraud to be “unproven”, rather than false as it does with lies.
As more and more people examine this matter the truth will emerge. At that point the Ilhanomaniacs will declare that it doesn’t matter whether Omar engaged in immigration fraud, just as they now claim it doesn’t matter that a state agency fined Omar for diverting her campaign funds to her own personal use. Remember how Omar initially claimed that accusations that she diverted campaign funds to her personal use were a result of anti-black and anti-Muslim prejudice? The Ilhanomaniacs claimed to believe that. Not one of them has come forward and admitted that they were wrong, that Omar did in fact steal campaign funds to pay for, among other fraudulent purposes, a trip to Florida and accountants fees to pay for her personal tax returns.
Do not let the Ilhanomaniacs fool you. Ilhanomaniacs don’t care whether Omar engaged in immigration fraud, diverted campaign funds to personal use, made antisemitic statements, or falsely and knowingly filed joint tax returns with a man she was not legally married to.
Ilhanomaniacs don’t care. Their defenses of her repeated outrageous conduct are not statements of fact that the Ilhanomaniacs believe. Rather, they are simply an attempt to silence her critics and get them to go away by calling her critics “racist”, “right-wing” or even just “conservative”.
Ilhanomaniacs are in some way worse than Omar. Omar cannot help being a lawbreaking lunatic. But what excuse will those who vote for Omar in 2020 have?
Why did Omar
1. As the old joke goes, never let the facts get in the way of the truth.
The piece detailed how Omar told some students that she had encountered an old woman who stole a $2 loaf of bread to feed her starving granddaughter. After spending the weekend in jail, Omar said, the woman faced an $80 fine she could not pay.
As the Post noted, Omar
Not gonna lie, it
Representative Ilhan Omar admitted she may have not been completely honest when sharing a story of racial injustice.
Omar shared a story about witnessing an elderly black women be put on trail for stealing a $2 loaf of bread to feed her starving grandchild.
She recently shared the incident with group of hundreds of high school students.
The Minnesota congresswoman said ‘the details might not have all matched, but that’s what I remember’.
She told the students she cursed in court when the woman was told she had to pay $80 for her crimes.
It was pointed out that her story was strikingly similar to a plot line in the novel, play and film ‘Les Miserables’.
She conceded she may have ‘flubbed’ some of the detailsKatelynn Caralle, “Ilhan Omar admits she ‘flubbed some facts’ when she claimed she saw a grandmother put on trial for shoplifting a $2 loaf for starving grandchild (hijacking the Les Mis story-line)“, Daily Mail, July 9, 2019
