Washington, DC jilted wife and physician Dr. Beth Mynett has filed for divorce in the DC Superior Court, accusing her estranged husband, Tim Mynatt, of marital infidelity, specifically with first term Rep. Ilham Omar, as reported by the New York Post on 27 Aug, 2019.
Interestingly enough, in her divorce filing, Mrs. Mynatt has officially accused her husband of making a “shocking declaration of love” for the Minnesota lawmaker prior to his dumping of his wife of seven years.
Even more interesting, the Omar For Congress campaign “paid Tim Mynett and his [political consulting team, the] E. Street Group, approximately $230,000 through her campaign since 2018 for fundraising consulting, digital communications, internet advertising and travel expenses.”
Even more damning, the divorce papers went even further, stating “Defendant’s more recent travel and long work hours now appear to be more related to his affair with Rep. Omar than with his actual work commitments.”
If Mrs. Mynatt’s accusations are proven true, Rep. Omar very well could be facing not only potential ethics violations, but also could be looking at charges of violating campaign finance laws.
In a separate New York Post article published on 29 Aug, 2019, a hapless NY Post reporter attempted to garner a comment from the Gopher State legislator, but to no avail;
Rep. Ilhan Omar dodged questions on Thursday about her alleged affair with a DC political consultant who’s on her payroll.
The freshman Democratic congresswoman appeared ahead of a scheduled event at the University of Minnesota when a Post reporter asked her about claims she broke up the marriage of Tim and Beth Mynett.
But instead of answering, Omar nervously made a beeline to make small talk with a police officer who was standing outside the campus’ Mayo Memorial Auditorium.
She then headed inside for the packed event about “Black Maternal Health” with Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.).
