Ilhan Omar Concedes Extramarital Affair With Wedding Picture AAN Staff
For months Ilhan Omar has been in a reported affair with a prominent Democratic strategist, Tim Mynett.
Omar hired Mynett to advise her 2018 congressional campaign in Minnesota’s Fifth District.
The pair attempted to cast doubt on their affair, despite both subsequently getting divorced and Mynett’s ex-wife, Dr. Beth Mynett, stating in court that her former husband cheated on her with the first-term lawmaker.
Omar announced the news in a widely-shared Instagram post.
The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra further reports:
When asked late last year if she was having an affair, Omar told WCCO, “No, I am not.”
“I have no interest in allowing the conversation about my personal life to continue, and so I have no desire to discuss it,” Omar added.
The Daily Mail reported that the two got married earlier this week at an undisclosed location.
This is Omar’s third marriage as she has “embroiled in allegations of committing immigration fraud by marrying her own brother, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, in an attempt to facilitate his acquisition of United States citizenship,” The Daily Wire previously reported. “Omar legally married Elmi, a British citizen, in early 2009, and reportedly religiously divorced him in 2011. However, it wasn’t until 2017 that Omar and Elmi obtained a legal divorce — Omar and Hirsi were legally married only a month later.”
