Gil Gutknecht Argues “The Final Days for Ilhan Omar” in Congress May Be Near

In a new Op-Ed for Townhall, Gil Gutknechk argues “the final days for Ilhan Omar” may be near as a number of forces and scandals may very well lead her to lose her reelection big.

Gutknecht writes:

Don’t expect the national media to report this, but Representative Ilhan Omar is attracting more credible opponents than any sitting member of Congress. Like angry hornets, a swarm is gathering and buzzing around her.

Her days as a Congresswoman may be numbered. It could be a finite number.

She faces at least three opponents on the Democratic side. Splitting the opposition may actually help her survive the primary. The Squad, the fawning media and the Hollywood Left will rally around her. But, the primary fight will likely leave its mark going into the November general election. I

t’s hard to imagine Democrats abiding by Marquess of Queensberry rules in their primary. Stinging punches, perhaps low blows will be thrown. Assuming she survives, those cuts will leave scars. Don’t expect supporters of her Democrat challengers to switch sides and vote for the Republican in November. But, many may sit out the general, opening the door for an upset.

You may say, No Way! Let me remind you of a powerful Congressman named Danny Rostenkowski. The likable Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee represented a very Democratic district in Chicago. He was arguably the most unbeatable member of Congress running for re-election in 1994.

Danny got himself tangled up in the House Bank/Post Office scandal. He also was challenged in the primary. In a general election shocker, Rosty lost to a relatively unknown but credible Republican lawyer named Michael Flanagan. Subsequent investigations uncovered other improprieties and Danny ultimately served a term in a very different federal Big House.

As Mark Twain observed, “History may not repeat itself, but it does rhyme”.

Congresswoman Omar has gotten herself embroiled in several scandals.

She very likely married her brother, committing immigration fraud. Marrying a sibling is still against the law in Minnesota. Doing it in order to violate immigration laws is a federal felony.

She probably was married to two men at the same time. There is pretty strong evidence to support this charge. When convenient, she hides behind Sharia Law, calling one marriage a “faith tradition” union. While Sharia permits a man to have multiple wives, it doesn’t allow Muslim women to have multiple husbands. Minnesota Law doesn’t permit bigamy either.

Rep. Omar had her hands slapped by Minnesota Campaign Finance officials for using campaign funds for personal purposes. She was fined for using campaign funds for travel. It appears that she likely paid her divorce lawyer from her campaign account as well.
