Rep. Omar declines to discuss accusation that she married her brother


Rep. Ilhan Omar has declined to discuss accusations that she married her brother as part of an alleged immigration scandal. This happened when Esme Murphy of WCCO interviewed the congresswoman and asked her several strong questions that many Americans would like the answers to.

Murphy's interview with Omar jumped right on the hard questions swirling around the alleged affair Omar is said to be part of in a divorce filing, and the accusations of her marrying her brother.

WCCO asked if Omar was  separated from her husband or dating someone. Omar said, "no, I am not. As I said yesterday, I have no interest in allowing the conversation about my personal life to continue and so I have no desire to discuss it."

At some point Murphy tried to get information out of her about the marrying her brother accusations.

CBS Local Minnesota said this, about that, "Rep. Omar also declined to discuss continued accusations that at one point she married her brother for immigration purposes — an allegation that first surfaced three years ago and that she repeatedly has called absurd."

At another point, it was WCCO's Murphy who said  “You seem completely unphased and unbowed by negative publicity about your personal life that you don’t want to comment on. How do you do it?”

Omar had one answer. She said, “I know who I am. The people who I love know who I am and what I care about. I have three beautiful little children and a family to care for, so for me, my focus is doing the work that I feel I was destined to do.”
