Ilhan Omar’s marriage scandal just took this strange turn
Since entering the political arena Ilhan Omar has been dogged by accusations of marriage fraud.
Omar’s been married multiple times and each one involves serious allegations of wrongdoing.
And now Ilhan Omar’s marriage scandal just took this strange turn.
Critics accuse Ilhan Omar of marrying her brother while at the same time she was married to another man, which led to allegations she illegally filed joint tax returns with two men.
Now Omar’s third marriage is leading to more scandal.
Omar officially married political consultant Tim Mynett.
The Associated Press reports, “A marriage license filed in Washington, D.C., shows Omar married political consultant Tim Mynett on Wednesday. Omar announced her new marriage Wednesday night on Instagram, with a photo of her and a bearded man smiling and displaying wedding rings. ‘Got married! From partners in politics to life partners, so blessed,’ the post says, without identifying Mynett by name.”
Mynett and Omar’s secret relationship allegedly broke up the marriage between Tim and Beth Mynett.
Tim Mynett also served a consultant to Omar’s campaign and ranked in hundreds of thousands of dollars in fees.
“Filings with the Federal Election Commission show Omar’s campaign paid Tim Mynett or his firm nearly $600,000 since July 2018. Though it may raise eyebrows, family members, including spouses, can be on the campaign payroll as long as the family member provides services at a fair market value,” the Associated Press also reports.
This led to accusations that Ilhan Omar was misusing donor money to fly all over the country to carry on an illicit love affair with Mynett.
