A man scorned?

It’s hard to keep track of the scandals surrounding Rep. Ilhan Omar, but the most recent (alleged) affair is nasty and looks to be growing worse — the one involving an alleged extra-marital affair between Rep. Omar and political consultant Tim Mynett.

Last week, a woman filing for divorce claimed Omar 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.” Mary blogged about the whole ordeal here.

Omar dodged questions about the affair. In an extra twist, the National Legal and Policy Center filed a complaint with the FEC, alleging congressional campaign violations in relation to E Street Group Tim Mynett.

With their (alleged) dirty laundry strewn across national headlines, Rep. Omar’s current legal husband, Ahmed Hirsi and father of their three children, is no longer playing the role of dutiful and quiet husband.

According to Powerline:

In the past three weeks I have circled back to interview sources whom I have found to be highly reliable in the Omar saga. They open a window onto the scandals from the perspective of Ahmed Hirsi, her long-time partner and the father of her three children. According to sources, Hirsi is telling friends:

• that he will not go to jail for Omar;

• that while Omar did indeed marry her brother (Ahmed Elmi) for fraudulent purposes, Hirsi did not know at the time that she had married Elmi;

• that Omar is threatening Hirsi he would be in trouble along with her if the truth were to come out;

• that Omar has asked him to state publicly that all is well with their marriage even though it is completely done and finished; and

• that in fact they are living apart and have been divorced under Islamic law (although they remain legally married).

Having humiliated Ahmed Hirsi by her affair with Tim Mynett, Omar now wants Hirsi to perform public relations services for her to suppress the scandal. That is cold.

Cold indeed. But given her track record, would you expect any less?
