On Wednesday, socialist Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), announced that she had gotten married to her mysterious staffer, Timothy Mynett, who she repeatedly denied being in a relationship with.
According to reports, her affair with Mynett is the reason Omar’s second husband divorced her, and the reason Mynett’s wife, Beth Mynett, a Washington D.C.-area physician divorced him.
According to court filings, and a Washington Post report, Beth Mynett alleged in court filings that she had separated from her husband last April after he told her he was “romantically involved with and in love with another woman, Ilhan Omar.”
But in August, Omar denied she was separated from her current husband Hirsi or dating outside of her marriage. She told WCCO she would not be speaking about her personal life.
“I have no interest in allowing the conversation about my personal life to continue and so I have no desire to discuss it,” Omar said.
In January, the FBI announced its probe into allegations that Omar had married her brother to commit immigration fraud.
