Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., one of the most polarizing figures of the far-left, is facing new allegations of her alleged role in an affair that may have led to a D.C. couple’s divorce.
And now, The New York Post is reporting that those allegations that Omar lied and conspired against her own family could lead to the end of her own marriage to second husband Ahmed Hirsi.
“I’m surprised he hasn’t filed already,” a source told the newspaper, saying the husband was “very confused” by the explosive court filings in which Omar was accused of an affair.

The Post said the two initially separated in March, with Omar telling Hirsi to file the divorce paperwork.
He didn’t – telling her that if she wanted a divorce, she’d have to do it herself.
But he may be having a change of heart after the allegations made in a separate divorce case. Dr. Beth Mynett claimed that her husband, DC political consultant Tim Mynett, left her and their son after saying he was “in love” with Omar.
“The parties physically separated on or about April 7, 2019, when Defendant told Plaintiff that he was romantically involved with and in love with another woman, Ilhan Omar, who serves as a U.S. representative from Minnesota,” read the court filing, which was obtained by Fox News.
The filing also accused Mynett of claiming he was very busy with work when he was actually with Omar.
“Defendant’s more recent travel and long work hours now appear to be more related to his affair with Representative Omar than with his actual work commitments,” the court filing read.
Mynett and Omar have both denied the allegations.
“No, I am not,” she told Minneapolis radio station WCCO when asked if she was separated from her husband. “I have no interest in allowing the conversation about my personal life to continue and so I have no desire to discuss it.”
Indeed, the matter would be personal – if not for another issue: Mynett has been paid roughly $230,000 for work on Omar’s congressional campaign, which could pose major ethics problems.
Tim Fitton of Judicial Watch is calling for an investigation.

“It looks like on the surface that she used campaign finance funds to benefit her paramour,” he wrote on Twitter.
The marital allegations are only the latest in a string of controversies that have followed the first-time lawmaker since she was swept into Congress as part of the far-left progressive wing in last year’s midterm election.
And she has by far been one of the most polarizing and divisive figures to emerge from that group.
Omar has been accused repeatedly of anti-Semitism with her attacks on both Israel and Jewish lobbying organizations in the United States.
Earlier this year, Omar was forced to apologize after she repeated an anti-Semitic stereotype about Jewish figures using money to buy politicians.
“It’s all about the Benjamins, baby,” she tweeted, then later backtracked and claimed her real concern was the influence of lobbyists.
But if she learned a lesson, it didn’t stick.
Over the summer, she and Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-M.I., shared a cartoon on Twitter from a controversial artist who has mocked Holocaust victims and has been accused of anti-Semitic imagery in his work.
And perhaps worst of all, she has downplayed and minimizing radical Islamic terrorism.
“Some people did something,” was how she infamously described the role of Muslim terrorists on Sept. 11, 2001.

One of the mourners at this past week’s ceremony honoring the victims and heroes of 9/11 called her out for it.
“Madam, objectively speaking, we know who and what was done. There is no uncertainty about that. Why your confusion?” asked Nicholas Haros Jr., who lost his mother on 9/11.
“On that day 19 Islamic terrorists, members of Al Qaeda, killed over 3,000 people and caused billions of dollars of economic damage,” he said. “Is that clear?”
