Those of you who have been keeping up with the accusations about the…let’s say “unusual”… marital history of Rep. Ilhan Omar may need to update your scorecards after this latest controversy.  It involves a tweet that seemed to reveal Omar’s father was also the father of her ex-husband, which she denied, claiming that her dad just happens to coincidentally have a nickname that’s identical to her ex-husband’s family name and her quiet deleting of that tweet was also totally innocent and…well, just read it yourself if you’re interested. Describing it is starting to feel like describing the plot of a novel co-written by Tom Clancy and Jackie Collins.

For the record, I don’t usually comment on politicians’ private lives, unless they let their tawdry behavior infringe on their responsibilities to their office.  In this case, the questions aren’t just about private behavior but serious allegations of fraud on tax forms and other government documents. The attempts by liberal media outlets to ignore this story are quite telling, especially when you imagine what the press reaction would be if the same allegations were made against a Republican Congress member.  It would set off more alarm bells than the Chicago Fire.

    Stories of Ilhan Omar having married her brother are a complete an utter fabrication . Conservatives in America are outraged at having two Muslim women in congress despite the fact they were duly elected . And remember what the Constitution says - "There shall be no religious test for public office "
    And conservatives are outraged that a Muslim woman would would have the gall to criticize president Trump and stand up for the rights of both Muslims and women in America , and to call Trump out for his vicious racism, misogyny , xenophobia and Islamophobia . Trump's private life has been infinitely more sordid and debauched than virtually any politician in US history , and right-wing hypocrites are trying to destroy and honorable woman's reputation . Typical .
