“Ilhan Omar stole my husband!”
That is the shocking claim made by Washington DC mom, Dr. Beth Mynett. Mynett says her husband, a political-consultant, dumped her for Omar, according to a bombshell divorce filing obtained by The NY Post.
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 left his wife, for the Muslim Freshman Congresswoman. This, according to the divorce papers submitted in DC Superior Court on August 27.
The physician, 55, and her 38-year-old husband — who has worked for left-wing Democrats such as Omar and her Minnesota predecessor, Keith Ellison — have a 13-year-old son together.
“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,” the court papers say.
“Defendant met Rep. Omar while working for her,’’ the document states. “Although devastated by the betrayal and deceit that preceded his abrupt declaration, Plaintiff told Defendant that she loved him, and was willing to fight for the marriage.
“Defendant, however, told her that was not an option for him’’ and moved out the next day, the papers say.
Omar’s own marriage has been under scrutiny amid allegations that she married her brother and committed immigration fraud. Omar called that allegation “absolutely false and ridiculous.”
The freshman Congresswoman married her husband, Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi, in 2002 during a faith ceremony, but did not legally marry at the time. The couple had two children before they separated in 2008. The next year, Omar legally married Ahmed Nur Said Elmi. The two split in 2011. The same year, Omar and Hirsi reconciled, but did not legally divorce until 2017. Omar and Hirsi had a third child together in 2012 and legally married in early 2018.
Omar Continues to Ignite Controversy and Draw Ire of Both Parties
Omar continues to attract controversy, and she is drawing the ire of even members of her own party. House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., called out members of both parties last week, claiming they helped further anti-Semitism in the nation’s “political dialogue.”
“The growing anti-Semitism in our political dialogue is repugnant,” Nadler said. He pointed to Trump’s comments about “disloyalty” in Jews who voted for Democrats, as you might expect from the long-time foe of Trump. However, Nadler also pointed to a vile cartoon forwarded by Omar and the two progressive Congresswomen, who have already been in the news for a failed attempt to enter Israel.
Omar has been criticized for tweeting in 2012 that “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”
Omar and fellow freshman Muslim Congresswoman, Rashida Harbi Tlaib were also two of just a handful of Democrats who voted against an overwhelmingly approved measure opposing the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel. When Omar countered that measure with her own resolution, she likened boycotts to those against the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany.
That action prompted the State Department to update the definition of anti-Semitism to include “drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis.”
