Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar’s divorce from her husband became final this week but she’s still facing an investigation over trips that were paid for by her campaign. The trips are all related to trips Omar made with the man she was having an extramarital relationship with during her campaign.
The Daily Mail reports that conservative National Legal and Policy Center last month filed an amended version of a complaint lodged earlier into Omar’s campaign spending. The group is asking the Federal Election Commission (FEC) to investigate several payments made by Omar’s campaign to Mynett’s company, The E Street Group.
Ilhan’s campaign paid Mynett’s company more than $369,000 since hiring him in August of 2018 up until this past September.
The complaint to the FEC is concerning travel with Mynett that Omar made that could be considered “romantic companionship” and therefore personal travel instead of a campaign travel expense.
‘If Ilhan for Congress reimbursed Mynett’s LLC for travel so that Rep. Omar would have the benefit of Mynett’s romantic companionship, the expenditure must be considered personal in nature.’
Mynett’s wife Beth has filed for divorce.
Our previous report on Rep. Ilhan Omar’s relationship with Tim Mynett:
On July 31, 2019, a grainy video of Rep. Ilhan Omar (S-MN) leaving an out of the way restaurant in Playa Del Rey with a mystery man was released by a Jewish man who lives in CA. The unnamed person who took the video claims he was upset by Omar’s comments at a CAIR (Council For American-Islamic Relations) event the day before.
The Somalian refugee turned U.S Congresswoman told the room full of Muslims at the CAIR event that they should be tired of being mistreated in America and should fight back. When recalling the events of 9-11, Rep. Ilhan Omar referred to the Islamic terrorists responsible for the worst terror attack on American soil as, “some people did something.” She has also been criticized for her anti-Semitic remarks.
One week before the video was released, The Daily Mail reported that Rep. Ilhan Omar and Ahmed Hirsi, the father of her three children had split up and were heading for another divorce.
The 12-second video, obtained exclusively by DailyMailTV, shows Omar and her companion leaving a romantic, out-of-the-way Italian restaurant in California the day after she had made controversial remarks blaming 9/11 on ‘someone doing something.’
The New York Post is now reporting that according to a longtime friend, Rep. Ilhan Omar’s marriage appears to be headed for the rocks.
The congresswoman’s husband, Ahmed Hirsi, the source said, is poised to file for divorce after the revelation in a bombshell court filing that she allegedly had an affair with DC political consultant Tim Mynett.
The Minnesota congresswoman and her husband allegedly separated in March, and Omar asked Hirsi to divorce her around that time because she didn’t want to file the papers — but Hirsi refused, telling her if she wanted a divorce she should do it herself, said the source, who has known both parties for 20 years.
The husband allegedly changed his mind after Tim Mynett’s wife last week filed bombshell divorce papers claiming her spouse was having an affair with the Somali-born US representative — with Hirsi said to be angry he had been made to look the fool by the allegations of an extramarital affair.
“I’m surprised he hasn’t filed already,” the source told The Post, adding that Hirsi was “very confused” in the wake of the bombshell allegations but still loved his wife and was reluctant to expose their three children to a public divorce battle.
The freshman congresswoman, 37, insisted she and Hirsi, 39, were still together and denied the charge she was dating Mynett in an interview with CBS affiliate WCCO on the day of the Aug. 27 report.
But the pair have been living apart since March — around the same time she was spotted having dinner with Mynett at a California restaurant — with Omar moving into a luxury condo in downtown Minneapolis and their split an “open secret” in town, the source said.
The family home they shared in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood — nicknamed “Little Mogadishu” for its large Somali population — appears to be abandoned, with the curtains drawn and cobwebs growing over the front porch when a Post reporter visited last week.
Hirsi, a senior policy aide to a Minneapolis city councilwoman, is reportedly bouncing between friends’ houses and stays at the luxury condo when Omar isn’t in town, with the kids also spending time with a grandfather, the source said.
Omar and Hirsi were first engaged in 2002. But the duo never legally married; instead, they wed in a traditional Muslim ceremony and had two children before splitting up in 2008, Omar has said.
When a Muslim woman cheats on her Muslim husband in the Middle East, it’s kind of a big deal and usually leads to a public flogging. Will Omar pay a heavy price in the 2020 election for her alleged adulterous behavior in her MN district that’s heavily populated with Somali Muslim residents?
On October 26, 2016, City Pages, a local Minneapolis publication, wrote about the story of Ilhan Omar.
In their article, City Pages discusses the improbability of Omar, a female, Somali Muslim, being elected in the Minnesota State legislature. They talked about the difficulty of getting Somali men in Omar’s district to vote for her. Rep. Ilhan Omar, the woman who repeatedly refers to President Trump (who’s surrounded himself with women in high-level positions in his corporation throughout his career), as a “sexist” and a “misogynist,” openly admits that women in the community she embraces, admit to being forbidden by their husbands to vote for her.
City Pages writes:
There were some votes Omar would never get.
“I had women in my community tell me, ‘Ilhan, I want to vote for you, but my husband won’t allow it,’” she says.
If Somali-Muslim women were not allowed to vote for Omar in the 2018 election, what will happen in 2020 when the adulterous Muslim Democrat asks for the support of the Somali-Muslim men in her district? Will the non-Muslim citizens in Omar’s district care that she allegedly married and divorced her brother, culturally married the father of her three children, and then cheated on him with a married man with a 13-year-old son?
