Elder Patriot – Earlier this week U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) was named as the “other woman” in a divorce filing:
(New York Post) A Washington, DC, mom says her political-consultant husband left her for Rep. Ilhan Omar, according to a bombshell divorce filing obtained by The Post.
Dr. Beth Mynett says her cheating spouse, Tim Mynett, told her in April that he was having an affair with the Somali-born US representative — and that he even made a “shocking declaration of love” for the Minnesota congresswoman before he ditched his wife, alleges the filing, submitted in DC Superior Court on Tuesday.
It’s hard to fathom how Rep. Omar ever got elected with so much credible evidence of wrongdoing by her already in the public domain:
Probable cause to investigate Rep. Omar for 8 instances of perjury, immigration & marriage fraud, federal tax fraud, student loan fraud, even bigamy: "Perhaps the most extensive spree of illegal misconduct committed by a House member in American history."https://t.co/ms4ZCzeHMR

It’s even harder to imagine how she’s escaped an ethics investigation as the accusations keep piling up:

“There’s credible evidence she married her brother and committed tax and marriage fraud and maybe immigration and student loan fraud tied up in that… It’s so bad in terms of the documentary evidence that we can’t even be confident that her last name is Omar.” – Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch
Now comes allegations that Rep. Omar illegally funnelled campaign cash to keep her paramour by her side when she travelled.
(Fox News) The conservative, Virginia-based National Legal and Policy Center filed a complaint against Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) on Wednesday, alleging that the lawmaker used campaign funds to illegally reimburse her purported paramour for personal travel expenses.
The complaint also charges that Omar failed to itemize travel reimbursements as required by the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 — and that the travel expenses increased during the same month that Omar’s alleged affair with married Washington, D.C. political consultant Tim Mynett, 38, heated up.
The complaint was filed one day after it emerged that Beth Mynett, 55, submitted divorce papers in Washington, D.C., Superior Court, claiming her husband suddenly informed her earlier this year that he was having an affair with Omar.
Federal Election Commission records that show that the vast majority of those payments were made months, some many months, after her election.
In total Omar’s campaign claims to have paid Mynett’s E. Street Group, LLC approximately $230,000 for fundraising consulting, digital communications, Internet advertising and travel expenses since 2018.
Additionally, the NLPC said that eight disbursements from Ilhan’s campaign to the E Street Group for “travel expenses,” totaling $21,546.94, were not itemized and contained no details.
The FEC requires details such as the entity being reimbursed, dates and amounts, and the purpose of the payment to be clearly listed on monthly forms.
The NLPC complaint, filed the day after Omar was named in the Mynett’s divorce, states:
“Although Mynett’s formal relationship with Rep. Omar’s campaign began in July 2018, with the payment of $7,000 directly to Mynett, the reimbursements for Mynett’s travel did not commence until April 2019, the same month that Dr. Mynett alleges in her filing that her husband told her of the affair, and made a ‘shocking declaration of love’ for Rep. Omar,” the complaint stated.
“It appears that … Mynett’s travel as reported by Ilhan for Congress may have been unrelated, or only partially related to Omar’s campaign.”
When reached for comment Rep. Omar said tersely, “I have no interest in really allowing the conversation about my personal life to continue and so I have no desire to discuss it.
“It seems nothing is off limits for the radical Islamist terror sympathizer Omar when she wants to talk about it, but she constantly shuts down inquiries into her wrongdoing by dismissing questions posed to her.
