Anti-semitic congresswoman Ilhan Omar has filed for a divorce from her husband who she had three kids with, saying that the marriage is "irretrievable." The motion to divorce her husband comes after rumors of an affair between Omar and political consultant Tim Mynett.
The split between Omar and her husband Ahmed Hirsi came on Friday in Minnesota. Check out what the New York Post reported:
The freshman congresswoman filed to split from husband Ahmed Hirsi on Friday in Minnesota, the state she represents, The Post has learned.
Omar filed on her 37th birthday, according to the US House of Representatives’ archives.
Omar and Hirsi were married in a religious ceremony in 2002. The two separated in 2008, then legally remarried in 2018.
“There has been an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage relationship,” the court documents filed in Minnesota say.
Omar said neither partner is seeking an order of protection and she asks the court to grant them “joint legal and physical custody” of their three minor children.
Back in August, a bombshell report revealed that Omar allegedly used tens of thousands of campaign donation dollars to fund "travel expenses" which were actually used to fund an affair she had with political strategist Tim Mynett.
The Federal Election Commission (FEC) uncovered that Omar made travel payments in early April to E. Street Group, LLC, the company owned by Mynett. Just one week later, Mynett's wife Dr. Beth Jordan Mynett accused her husband of having an affair with Omar.
"Dr. Beth Jordan Mynett says her cheating spouse, Tim Mynett, told her in April that he was having an affair with the Somali-born US representative and that he even made a 'shocking declaration of love' for the Minnesota congresswoman before he ditched her, alleges the filing, submitted in DC Superior Court on Tuesday," The New York Post reported.
At the time, Omar denied that she split from her current husband and is engaged in an affair with another man.
During an interview with a news station in Minnesota, Omar was asked if she was dating someone else. "No, I am not," she replied. She failed to give any other information regarding to the bombshell report.
“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 reporter eased up: “You seem completely unfazed and unbowed by negative publicity about your personal life that you don’t want to comment on. How do you do it?”
“I know who I am. The people who I love know who I am and what I care about,” Omar said. “I have three beautiful little children and a family to care for, so for me, my focus is doing the work that I feel I was destined to do.”
The man Omar allegedly had an affair with has admitted that he cheated on his wife with Omar.
Tim and Jordan Mynett were "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."
The New York Post continued: "The 37-year-old congresswoman and mom of three paid Tim Mynett and his E. Street Group approximately $230,000 through her campaign since 2018 for fundraising consulting, digital communications, Internet advertising and travel expenses."
Tom Anderson, a government ethics watchdog, warned that if Omar used campaign funds to fund an affair, she may be in legal jeopardy.
“We believe Representative Ilhan Omar may have touched the third rail of campaign finance law: disbursing campaign funds for personal use,” Anderson said as he warned that Omar will most likely do it again. “It’s a brazen act Representative Omar was caught doing before in Minnesota and all of the evidence we’ve seen tells us she’s probably doing it again.”
