Let’s face it, Rep. Ilhan Omar has made a huge mockery of the sanctity of marriage. Between reports that she married her own brother to help him enter the United States and her latest scandal, the Congresswoman should just step down.
After her alleged marriage to her brother had reached the time required from him to remain in the US, Omar divorced him to marry the wealthy Ahmed Hirsi. Dozens of offical documents show that she was living with Hirsi the entire span of her marriage to her alleged brother, Ahmed Nur Said Elm.i
According to NY Post, The Minnesota congresswoman and her husband allegedly separated in March, and Omar asked Hirsi to divorce her around that time because she didn’t want to file the papers — but Hirsi refused, telling her if she wanted a divorce she should do it herself, said the source, who has known both parties for 20 years.
The husband allegedly changed his mind after Tim Mynett’s wife last week filed bombshell divorce papers claiming her spouse was having an affair with the Somali-born US representative — with Hirsi said to be angry he had been made to look the fool by the allegations of an extramarital affair.
“I’m surprised he hasn’t filed already,” the source told The Post, adding that Hirsi was “very confused” in the wake of the bombshell allegations but still loved his wife and was reluctant to expose their three children to a public divorce battle.
The freshman congresswoman, 37, insisted she and Hirsi, 39, were still together and denied the charge she was dating Mynett in an interview with CBS affiliate WCCO on the day of the Aug. 27 report.
But the pair have been living apart since March — around the same time she was spotted having dinner with Mynett at a California restaurant — with Omar moving into a luxury condo in downtown Minneapolis and their split an “open secret” in town, the source said.
