A friend of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and a Somali community leader in Minneapolis tells the Daily Mail that the radical congresswoman did in fact marry her brother.

Abdihakim Osman says Omar married her brother, Ahmed Elmi, in order to get him papers so he could remain in the United States. Omar was still married to her first husband, Ahmed Hirsi, at the time.

Osman told the Daily Mail, "She said she needed to get papers for her brother to go to school. We all thought she was just getting papers to allow him to stay in this country."
