In February of this year, The Daily Mail UK reported on the affair, saying Omar’s husband discovered the truth “when he went to her Washington D.C. apartment last spring and found the lovers lounging around in pajamas.”
Reportedly Omar told her then-husband, Ahmed Hirsi, to remain in Minneapolis with their children instead of moving with her to D.C. Daily Mail also revealed last October that Omar and her chief fundraiser Tim Mynett, who was also married, were living together “on and off” at a secret DC apartment.
Daily Mail reported another bombshell between the couple having extramarital affairs: Omar paid Mynett’s fundraising company more than a whopping $500k in 2019 according to Federal Election Commission figures. Mynett’s E Street Company was paid $87,683 in December alone.
Over the weekend, Citizen Free Press released updated data about the recently married couple. “New campaign data show Omar has paid Tim Mynett’s consulting firm a total of more than $878,000 since 2018 – including $189,000 just weeks after the couple announced they were husband and wife the New York Post reported.”
At least the pair have not completely evaded scrutiny. “Payments between the Minneapolis Democratic congresswoman and Tim Mynett prompted at least one ethics complaint in 2019 after the Post first revealed allegations” according to Citizen Free Press. The complaint was made by Mynett’s “then-wife in her divorce filing.”
Omar and her now third husband don’t seem phased by the complaint, even now that they are married, considering Mynett’s E Street Group has collected “$292,814.99 from his wife’s campaign this year for digital advertising, fundraising consulting and research services according to the Federal Election Commission filings.” In total, Omar’s campaign has given E street $878,930.65 since he began working for her in 2018.
