State Senator Omar Fateh says he’s ‘troubled’ by the conviction of his brother-in-law and campaign volunteer, Muse Mohamed. Muse lied to a federal grand jury about handling absentee ballots in Omar’s 2020 primary campaign.

State Senator Omar Fateh released a statement late Tuesday evening confirming for the first time publicly that Muse Mohamud Mohamed is his brother-in-law. Muse was convicted earlier in the day of two counts of perjury. “I am troubled by this conviction,” said Omar, who did not directly address allegations of voter fraud that arose in his 2020 primary campaign.
