After several years of avoiding the subject — on Tuesday the Minneapolis Star-Tribune published a report on Ilhan Omar, her tax fraud crimes, her illegal use of campaign funds to cover travel costs and touched on her alleged marriage to her younger brother.
Investigative Journalist David Steinberg who has been covering the incredible story for years commented on the report today.
Much of the information has already been reported… by David.
Ben is correct.
Worse, it seems the @StarTribune made a perfectly irrational decision here: To try to rebuild trust with readers by:
1) Whitewashing its 3 years of failure on Omar, and
2) Not crediting the 3 reporters whose work they essentially steal here. https://t.co/hXKFnoQElJ

The Star-Tribune reported that the Omar campaign launched a concerted effort to quash details on her marriage to her brother.
Obviously, Omar is afraid of the information on her wedding to her brother in 2009 to go public.
