Ilhan Omar admits she may have flubbed facts in dramatic story she told high school students

Rep. Ilhan Omar admitted that she may have embellished part of the story she told to high school students in an apparent attempt to showcase racial and economic disparities in the country.

The Minnesota Democrat recently told hundreds of Richfield High School student that about five years ago, when she was working as a Minneapolis city councilman, she witnessed an example of injustice that shook her to the core.

She recalled a “sweet, old… African American lady” who was detained for a whole weekend for stealing a $2 loaf of bread to feed her “starving 5-year-old granddaughter,” according to the Washington Post, and screamed an expletive in court after the woman was fined $80 for the crime.

“I couldn’t control my emotions,” Omar told students, “because I couldn’t understand how a roomful of educated adults could do something so unjust.”
