Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is making national headlines again, but this time it involves one of her political consultants, a messy affair/divorce and a complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) alleging improper campaign spending.
Tim Mynett, a consultant who has worked with Omar, reportedly confessed his “devastating and shocking declaration of love” for Omar this past April, according to NBC News.
Beth Mynett, 55, said in the divorce filing that she was “devastated by the betrayal and deceit that preceded his abrupt declaration,” but she told her husband that she “loved him and was willing to fight for the marriage.” However, she said he told her that “was not an option for him,” according to court documents.
Good for the CBS reporter for asking the question, but – she didn’t get far as Omar dodged the question.
When asked for comment, Omar’s office referred NBC News to the E Street Group, which said in part, “E Street Group does not comment on the personal life of either our staff or clients.”
Omar and her congressional office told the Washington Examiner she was unwilling to talk about questions surrounding her marriage.
Well, at least media is asking the questions – not sure it’s going to get them far… As her attitude seems to be holier-than-thou.
