Ilhan Omar didn’t have much to say yesterday when asked about her alleged affair with a married political consultant (whose firm just so happened to have received well over $200,000 from her campaign to cover various expenses, including mysterious “travel expenses”). She said she had “no desire to discuss it.” Apparently she wasn’t kidding.
When Theo Keith, a political reporter at Minneapolis-St. Paul’s Fox affiliate, tried to talk to her, here’s what he says happened:
NEWS: U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar calls it “stupid” to be asking her about alleged misuse of campaign funds.
An aide later boxed me into a door to keep reporters away from Omar as she left an event at a north Minneapolis grocery store.

Does Ilhan Omar’s aide moonlight as April Ryan’s security guard?
Does Omar think she answers to no one?!? Who the hell does she think she is? Someone needs to sit her down under oath and get some answers and not anyone from MN!!! Ellison is useless.
