Radical Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar has come under fire several times since becoming a member on Congress in January.
Aside from making a slew of anti-Semitic and controversial comments, allegations recently resurfaced that Omar married her own brother.
While she has largely refused to answer questions about the accusations, Omar finally responded this week — but not in a way that helps her case.
On Wednesday, Omar took to Twitter to weigh in on a story about Iowa GOP Rep. Steve King and his controversial comments.
King bizarrely argued at an event that incest and rape played an important role in shaping population growth over the course of time.
“Gross! This would explain why these weirdos are fixed on smearing me with claims of incest. Projecting their filth, unreal,” Omar wrote.

Her response is bizarre because she basically admitted that she’s aware of the allegations against her — but she deflected to attack King.
But more importantly, the allegations against Omar are very serious and only continue to mount.
Last week, Omar was accused of potentially having an affair with a married man who works closely with her campaign.
Omar may be carrying on an affair with Tim Mynett, a married man whose business has received over $250,000 from Omar’s campaign.
Photos show that Mynett and Omar are constantly by each other’s sides at events, traveling to Los Angeles, New York City, Austin, and Seattle together.
What is unusual is that Omar is currently divorcing her second husband, has been accused of marrying her brother, and is now allegedly dating a married man while all of this is going on.
The Muslim lawmaker allegedly filed illegal tax returns in 2014 and 2015.
Official documents suggest that Omar was living with her current husband, Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi, throughout her entire legal marriage to Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, contradicting the story she tells to explain her multiple marriages.
Elmi is the man that critics allege is her brother.
And, putting the cherry on top, she refuses to answer questions or provide any documents that could clear up all of these allegations.
Her office has refused countless media inquires about allegations she married her brother.
And the Daily Mail reports that her office didn’t respond to several requests about whether she was having an affair with Mynett.
That is highly irregular and the sort of thing somebody would only do in response to a scandal they can’t win on.
In other words, Omar may be outright admitting that the allegations against her are true and that responding would be a loss for her.
Perhaps Omar knows that if she says nothing, the mainstream media will give her a pass and refuse to hold her accountable.
So rather than address the allegations, Omar is just riding it out and hoping that all of this will just go away.
For any reasonable observer, her refusal to comment on any of this sure looks like strong evidence against her.
