(AmericanPoliticalDaily.com) – On Wednesday night, Democratic Minnesota Rep Ilhan Omar announced that she has married…again.
The news was announced via Instagram, and not Twitter, possibly to reduce the severity of the initial online backlash. Omar published a black and white photograph of herself with her new husband, Tim Mynett. Mynett also happens to be Omar’s chief fundraiser.
In a caption that accompanied the black and white photograph, Omar said, “Got married! From partners in politics to life partners, so blessed. Alhamdulillah.”

Omar’s marriage may come as a surprise to some as she only recently got divorced from her second husband, Ahmed Hirsi. If that wasn’t scandalous enough, members of the Somali community that Omar represents previously accused her of infidelity.
The Minnesota representative was forced to deny an affair with her now-husband Mynett while married to Hirsi. The Daily Mail reported that Omar’s last husband discovered she was cheating on him when he turned up to her Washington, D.C. apartment unannounced only to find the congresswoman in her pajamas and relaxing casually with Mynett. One source told the news outlet that Hirsi “suspected she was cheating but she kept telling him he was paranoid.”
Not scandalous enough for you?
Omar’s first husband, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, is believed to be her brother. They married in 2009 after she was denied a license to marry Hirsi in 2002. In 2012, Omar reportedly broke up with Elmi but stayed married to him until 2018. She also gave birth to her third child with Hirsi in 2012.
Hey, she’s getting better at this, at least it’s not her brother this time. https://t.co/xujEtkp4Gv
