On August 27, Dr. Beth Mynett filed for divorce from Democratic political consultant Tim Mynett. Dr. Mynett’s filing — submitted under penalty of perjury — included claims that raised the gossipy open secret of Rep. Ilhan Omar’s extramarital affair with Tim Mynett to a more serious matter of public corruption.
The divorce filing suggested serial campaign finance violations by Rep. Omar. (Questionable finances have been a recurring theme with Omar; in June of this year she was found guilty of a half-dozen or so violations.) The divorce filing also included one disturbing allegation about Rep. Omar’s character and judgment.
For a couple days, Dr. Mynett’s filing drew the expected attention from local and national media. However, it did not draw their expected effort or competency.
On the evening of the 27th, Minneapolis CBS affiliate WCCO aired an exclusive interview with Rep. Omar. WCCO’s Esme Murphy asked Omar if she had separated from her husband Ahmed Hirsi — described that week by multiple outlets as a senior policy aide to Minneapolis City Councilwoman Alondra Cano — and was now dating someone else.
