American politician Ilhan Abdullahi Omar has been the U.S. representative for Minnesota’s 5th congressional district since 2019. She’s a member of the Democratic–Farmer–Labor Party. She kicked off the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Thursday. Republicans had promised to do this because Omar has made anti-Semitic and anti-American comments in the past.
The resolution was passed by a vote of 218 to 211 after a heated debate in which Democrats accused Republicans of racism and hypocrisy and said the GOP only checks up on Democrats when they do something wrong. Omar and a few other Democrats said Republicans were racist in an open way.
“I am a Muslim and an immigrant from Africa, which is interesting,” Omar said. “Does it surprise anyone that I’m being picked on? Is it strange that people think I’m not qualified to talk about American foreign policy or that they see me as a strong voice that needs to be silenced?”
People became more interested in her and her personal life after she was kicked off the House Foreign Affairs Committee. So, we’ll talk about her marriages and how much money she has in this article.
Omar Got Married To Tim Mynett In March 2020
A representative for Omar told that Omar, who is 38 years old, married Tim Mynett in March 2020. NBC News says that Mynett works as a political consultant for the company E Street Group, which has worked with Omar’s campaign in the past.
Just over five months after filing for divorce from her ex-husband Ahmed Hirsi, the Democratic lawmaker said she was now married. “Got hitched!” Omar wrote a caption for a black-and-white selfie of the two of them. “From political partners to life partners, how lucky! Alhamdulillah ❤.” “They were legally and religiously married,” Omar’s spokesman told PEOPLE.
Who Is Omar’s Husband, Tim Mynett?
Mynett is known as a political consultant. During the 2020 election cycle, Omar’s campaign gave more than $523,000 to his firm, the E Street Group. The E Street Group made the most money from Omar’s campaign. Her critics and opponents told the whole country about the link between Omar’s campaign and Mynett’s consulting firm.
The Report says that Beth, who used to be Mynett’s wife, filed for divorce in August. The network said that in court documents, she said that he had an affair with Omar and made a “devastating and shocking declaration of love” for the lawmaker before they broke up.
At the time, Mynett was said to have denied rumors that she had an affair and said that the rumors were part of a plan to hurt her reputation. When asked about the claims on Thursday, Omar’s spokesman had nothing to say.
In 2016, Omar pushed back against the right-wing claim, which she called “ridiculous and offensive,” that her ex-husband, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, was really her brother and that the two of them got married to help him get into the country.
Know About Omar’s Previous Marriages
In 2002, Omar was engaged to Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi. She said that they had an unofficial Islamic marriage based on their faith. The couple had two kids together, and one of them, Isra Hirsi, was one of the three main organizers of the US school strike for climate change. Omar has said that she and Hirsi got a divorce in 2008 based on their faith.
In 2009, Omar married a British Somali named Ahmed Nur Said Elmi. Omar says that she and Elmi got a divorce based on their faith in 2011. She then got back together with Hirsi and had a third child with him in 2012. Elmi and Omar got a legal divorce in 2017, and Omar and Hirsi got married legally in 2018. On October 7, 2019, Omar filed for divorce from Hirsi. He said that the marriage had “irretrievably broken down.” On November 5, 2019, the divorce was finalized.
She has three children with her ex-husband, Hirsi. The congresswoman filed for divorce from Hirsi at the beginning of October, and the two were officially no longer together by the beginning of November, according to the Associated Press. It is said that Hirsi got married again in December.
