Congresswoman Ilhan Omar Denies Allegations of Affair

During a recent interview with a local Minnesota CBS affiliate, Congresswoman Ilhan Omar denied allegations of having an affair with a married man. The accusation was first reported by the New York Post, after they obtained court documents from a related divorce case. Omar’s Congressional office declined to comment on the allegations in response to an attempt from Fox News.

The freshman congresswoman is accused of having an affair with Tim Mynett, a political consultant to her campaign. Beth Mynett, his wife, claims her husband confessed the affair earlier this year. She says she attempted to save the marriage but her husband declined, preferring to continue his alleged relationship with Omar.

“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, who serves as a U.S. representative from Minnesota,” according to court filings obtained by Fox News.

“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,” according to court documents.

The court filings went on to allege that Mynett engaged in the affair while working for Omar. “Defendant’s more recent travel and long work hours now appear to be more related to his affair with Representative Omar than with his actual work commitments,” the documents read.

Mynett’s political consulting group was paid roughly $230,000 by Omar’s campaign since 2018, according to FEC records. The allegations surfaced about a month after Omar separated from her  husband and father of three children, moving out of their home and into a Minneapolis penthouse.

“No, I am not,” Omar responded when asked by a CBS reporter if she had engaged in the alleged affair. “As I said yesterday, I have no interest in really allowing the conversation about my personal life to continue and so I have no desire to discuss it.”
