Corruption, Affairs and Divorces, Oh My
I wrote not long ago about the alleged affair between Ilhan Omar and Tim Mynett. This story also delved into the rabbit hole that is Ilhan Omar’s FEC troubles. Not long after that, Mynett’s wife filed for divorce stating that her husband and the freshman congresswoman were engaged in an affair.
So… a divorce for Omar? Multiple divorces? Let’s keep going down the rabbit hole.
Now that the affair allegations are going strong Omar’s husband, Ahmed Hirsi, is filing for divorce as well. According to Scott Johnson of Power Line Blog, Hirsi has told friends 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.
Over the past few weeks we’ve seen Omar flat out refuse to address questions from media regarding her marriage, her marriage to her brother, and the affair. As well as the FEC complaint that has come about due to her paying Mynett and his consulting group for “travel expenses.”
A Divorce for Omar?
The couple has actually been living separately since March when Omar originally asked Hirsi for a divorce. He denied her request then. Since the cheating has been brought forth, Hirsi has apparently changed his mind.
If it does in fact come out that Omar admitted to marrying her brother, is that the end of her political career? Will they allow her to get away with defrauding the United States of America? Is she going to be held responsible for anything that she has done? Ever?
