"A lie told often enough becomes the truth." Vladimir Lenin

Below are news headlines that I found on the Daily Mail web site. They all appeared at the same time. Note the difference in how each was handled. They all concern sexual abuse of a minor. But the outcome varies greatly between each case. What is wrong with the justice system?

You can google any of these for further information.They are not in any particular chronological order.

Headlines on Daily Mail July 13, 2019:

Oh, brother! Action taken against Ilhan Omar for 'marrying sibling'
The watchdog group Judicial Watch has filed a House Ethics complaint against Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., calling for a congressional investigation of allegations she married her brother in an immigration-fraud scheme. As WND reported, investigative reporter David Steinberg and others have published over the past three years substantial evidence that Omar married her brother to defraud U.S. immigration and perjured herself eight times in her divorce statement. In addition, a Minnesota state agency last month fined her for filing joint tax returns with a man who was not her husband while legally married to a man who appears to be her brother.
The complaint includes allegations of immigration, marriage, tax, and student loan fraud. The group filed the complaint with the House of Representatives' Office of Congressional Ethics.
