Radical Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar has come under fire several times since becoming a member on Congress in January.
Aside from making a slew of anti-Semitic and controversial comments, Omar was recently accused of marrying her own brother to commit fraud.
Now, Omar has been accused of potentially having an affair with a married man who works closely with her campaign.
And the photos showing the two together and very close are shocking, especially given Omar is in the middle of a divorce and still hasn’t addressed allegations that she married her brother.
According to The Daily Mail, Omar may be carrying on an affair with Tim Mynett, a married man whose business has received over $250,000 from Omar’s campaign.
Mynett, a campaign fundraising strategist, is married to Dr. Beth Mynett, but the Daily Mail reports that he recently left their marital home and is now living in an apartment in Washington, D.C.
Photos show that Mynett and Omar are constantly by each other’s sides at events, traveling to Los Angeles, New York City, Austin and Seattle together.
Omar’s camp has paid Mynett’s company – E Street Group – more than $250,000 in consulting fees and travel expenses.
Check out some of the photos, via Daily Mail:
The Daily Mail also caught video of Omar leaving a dinner with Mynett and alleges they were holding hands when they exited the establishment.
It’s not shocking or out of the ordinary for someone, even a lawmaker, to date someone.
What is unusual is that Omar is currently divorcing her second husband, has been accused of marrying her brother, and is now allegedly dating a married man while all of this is going on.
The Muslim lawmaker allegedly filed illegal tax returns in 2014 and 2015.
Official documents suggest that Omar was living with her current husband, Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi, throughout her entire legal marriage to Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, contradicting the story she tells to explain her multiple marriages.
Elmi is the man that critics allege is her brother.
And, putting the cherry on top, she refuses to answer questions or provide any documents that could clear up all of these allegations.
Her office has refused countless media inquires about allegations she married her brother.
And the Daily Mail reports that her office didn’t respond to several requests about whether she was having an affair with Mynett.
That is highly irregular and the sort of thing somebody would only do in response to a scandal they can’t win on.
In other words, Omar may be outright admitting that the allegations against her are true and that responding would be a loss for her.
Perhaps Omar knows that if she says nothing, the mainstream media will give her a pass and refuse to hold her accountable.
So rather than address the allegations, Omar is just riding it out and hoping that all of this will just go away.
For any reasonable observer, her refusal to comment on any of this sure looks like strong evidence against her.
