Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) quietly deleted a tweet from June 2013 this morning that revealed her father's name.
The problem: Omar's father's name is Nur Said. That is the same family name as her ex-husband, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi.
Omar has repeatedly faced allegations she married her brother in an immigration fraud scheme.
Her relatives have also reportedly scrubbed their social media accounts as well.
The Daily Caller's Luke Rosiak has more:
Omar’s spokesman, Jeremy Slevin, did not answer questions from the Daily Caller News Foundation about why a congresswoman would try to erase the identity of her father from the internet. But the name of the man who Omar married under unusual circumstances was Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, adding to evidence that she married her brother.
At 8 pm on Monday, Shaikh Tawhidi, the “Imam of Peace,” tweeted a link to the tweet. The DCNF observed the live tweet and took a screenshot at that time.
Your father is Nur Said?— Imam of Peace (@Imamofpeace) September 17, 2019
Not: Nur Omar Mohamed?
So you’re Ilhan Nur Said?
And you married Ahmed Nur Said,
You married your brother.
(Most Americans don’t know that in most Muslim countries, the surname is actually the father’s name)

Soon after, One America News journalist Jack Posobiec called attention to the tweet and archived it here.

By Tuesday morning, the six-year-old tweet had disappeared.
The Minneapolis Star-Tribune (Minnesota's largest daily) reported months ago that Ahmed Nur Said Elmi was possibly her own brother.
