Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) announced on Instagram that she got married. She didn’t say his name or tagged the photo.

Reporters and news outlets have said it’s Tim Mynett, her chief fundraiser and political strategist.

I got so confused because the man does not look like Tim Mynett.

I discussed with Kemberlee, who reminded me of the contrast setting on Instagram. Others confirmed it like KSTP:

On Wednesday, Rep. Ilhan Omar announced on her Instagram account she is married. The photo attached to the post shows her and political consultant Tim Mynett, who she has been romantically linked to.

Omar did not name her spouse in the social media post.

In her divorce filing, Mynett’s ex-wife alleged that he was having an affair with Omar. Omar refused to comment on those claims while Mynett denied them.

Mynett’s wife claimed in the divorce papers that Omar wrecked the marriage:

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.

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.”

The National Legal and Policy Center filed a complaint with the FEC, alleging congressional campaign violations in relation to E Street Group Tim Mynett.
