The complaint also charges that Umar could not refunds itemize travel as required by the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 — and the cost of travel increased in the same month that Omar warmed the alleged affair with married Washington, DC, political consultant Tim Mynett, 38,.

The complaint was filed, a day after it turned out that Beth Mynett, 55, filed divorce papers in Washington, DC, Superior Court, claims that her husband informed of a sudden your at the beginning of this year that he had an affair with Omar.

Omar has denied that she had an affair with Mynett. When asked on Tuesday of WCCO, if I am not separate from her husband, and when she said dating someone who was Umar: ““no, no, no. As I said yesterday, I have no interest in, really, so the conversation about my personal life, to continue, and so I have to discuss have no desire to.”

There was no indication that Mynett, or someone in his behalf, and later Omar’s reimbursed for said campaign, NLPC,.

Legal experts said the payments were expenditure necessarily illegal, because Omar is obviously Mynett personal connections to, how long they were for bona fide campaign.

In June, the Minnesota campaign officials of Finance stated that Omar repeatedly violated state rules when they used campaign funds to pay for personal out-of-state travel, as well as help on their tax returns. Omar was ordered to report to their previous campaign Committee for almost $3,500.

The Minnesota campaign Finance and Public disclosure Board, said the need to pay the first-term Congressman, also, the state a $500 civil penalty for using campaign money to travel to Florida, where they took a fee.


In addition, conservative commentators noted that the report of the Board showed Omar and her current husband, Ahmed Hirsi, filed joint tax returns in 2014 and 2015, when Omar was allegedly married to another man. Omar engaged in a civil marriage with Ahmed Nur, Said Elmi in the year 2009, and the couple separated, apparently, in 2011, without formal petitions for divorce until 2017.

Before her marriage with Elmi, Omar married Hirsi in the Muslim “faith-tradition had allegedly,” but the couple separated shortly thereafter. Omar is not officially marry Hirsi up to 2018, after reconciliation with him, and the division with Elmi.

Tax experts say that the IRS only allows the joint submissions, if a couple in a state that recognizes legally married the couple.


In her divorce filing, Beth Mynett said she sought primary custody of the couple’s son because of her estranged husband’s “extensive travel”, and the concern for his judgment.

The court papers said Mynett “to bring his son into danger by him in public with representatives of Omar who threatened at the time, garnered a plethora of media attention with the death of — a on the level of capture of the well-known assassin, the same week.”

The 37-year-old Congressman was spotted with Mynett at a California restaurant last March.


“Defendant’s recent travel and work long hours now seem to be more in connection with his affair with Omar than with his actual work, obligations,” Beth Mynett’s court filing read.

Omar is not the first member of the so-called progressive Democratic “Squad” under the FEC audit. In April, NLPC alleged that New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Saikat Chakrabarti, her then-chief of staff, apparently violated campaign Finance law, with a funnel of education founded nearly $1 million in contributions from political action committees Chakrabarti, to private companies he also controlled.
