It’s historic, blared The Star Tribune. Ilhan Omar beat incumbent Rep. Phyllis Khan in the primary and will undoubtedly win the election for the state House in Minnesota even though she married her brother while married to the father of her children.
It’s okay…it was probably just to get him into the country. How noble! The violation of immigration law shouldn’t be a problem either. That’s who we are now. Those are our values now.

The Tribune didn’t mention her brother and the bigamy.
