The DC wife of a Democrat consultant is alleging that her husband engaged in an extramarital affair with freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar in recent months, causing the man to leave his wife and kids for the congresswoman.
The New York Post, citing divorce filings obtained by the newspaper, reports Dr. Beth Jordan Mynett said her husband Tim Mynett, a 38 year old political consultant, admitted to having an affair with Omar in April. Dr. Mynett also alleges her spouse dropped a “shocking declaration of love” for the radical-left lawmaker and dumped her soon after, state filings submitted to the Superior Court of the District of Columbia on Tuesday.
“The parties physically separated on or about April 7, 2019, when Defendant told Plaintiff that he was romantically involved with and in love with another woman, Ilhan Omar,” court papers read, according to the Post.
Despite her husband’s alleged actions, Dr. Mynett says she told him she was “willing to fight for the marriage,” but she claims the political consultant told her their relationship was done. The couple married in 2012 and have a 13-year-old son together.
Omar has dished out roughly $230,000 in campaign funds in ‘consulting fees’ and ‘travel expenses’ to her secret lovers consulting group since 2018 when he first started working there. Tim has already made partner at the firm.
The development comes after a Daily Mail report stating Omar is no longer living with her husband, Ahmed Hirsi, who she fired as a policy advisor. Before Hirsi, the Minnesota Democrat was married to Ahmed Nur Said Elmi.
Omar’s time in office has been marked by scandal. She has faced scrutiny stemming surrounding the marriage concerning a joint tax return she filed with Hirsi in 2014 and 2015 — before they were actually married and while Omar was legally wed to another man.
“Defendant’s more recent travel and long work hours now appear to be more related to his affair with Rep. Omar than with his actual work commitments,” court papers read. (RELATED: Here’s What Some People On The Right Think Of The ‘Send Her Back’ Chant)
Beth is seeking primary custody of their son, adding that her husband “put his son in harm’s way” by taking him out with the congresswoman, who has received death threats and is often in the media. She is also asking for their D.C. home and requesting that her then-husband pays for legal fees and child support.
“By way of example, days prior to Defendant’s devastating and shocking declaration of love for Rep. Omar and admission of their affair, he and Rep. Omar took the parties’ son to dinner in order to formally meet for the first time at the family’s favorite neighborhood restaurant while Plaintiff was out of town,” the court papers read.
This latest scandal has to break some sort of record for the most scandals in the shortest amount of time in office. This paired with her clearly anti-Semitic comments have drawn a lot of attention, just not the kind she would want.
Alabama GOP has adopted a resolution to clean up congress, by removing Omar from her position.
