Rumors swirled earlier this month of a possible affair between Omar and political consultant Tim Mynett.
The New York Post reported Tuesday afternoon that a woman filing for divorce claimed Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) stole her husband.
According to Dr. Beth Jordan Mynett, her husband Tim Mynett told her in April of his affair with the congresswoman. He also “made a ‘shocking declaration of love'” for her.
From The New York Post:
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.
Beth Mynett told her husband that she still loved him and was “willing to fight for the marriage” even after his admission, according to the court papers. The pair had been living together for six years before marrying in 2012, the filing said.
But Tim Mynett told her he was through, the suit says.
Dr. Mynett wants primary physical custody of their son due to Mynett’s constant travel with Omar. The papers state that Mynett’s “more recent travel and long work hours now appear to be more related to his affair with Rep. Omar than with his actual work commitments.”
The doctor also said that Mynett’s relationship with Omar caused her to lose all trust she had with him concerning their son. She expressed disappointment that the two of them took their son out to dinner to formally meet Omar before Mynett informed his wife of the affair.
Dr. Mynett fumed that her husband potentially “put his son in harm’s way” by taking him out with Omar. The congresswoman had “at that time garnered a plethora of media attention along with death threats.”
Omar also recently split up from her husband. They have three children.
At the beginning of August, DailyMailTV reported Omar “dining and holding hands with a mystery man at a secluded restaurant outside of Los Angeles back in March.”
A week later, The Daily Mail revealed the man as Mynett. A source told the publication that Omar “has been carrying on with Mynett, 38, a campaign fundraising strategist, for several months.” The journalists confirmed then that Mynett and his wife split up and he moved to a DC apartment.
Omar and Mynett have a relationship that goes back to 2018. She has paid him “and his E. Street Group approximately $230,000 through her campaign since 2018 for fundraising consulting, digital communications, internet advertising, and travel expenses.”DONATE
