The wife of a Democrat consultant alleged her husband engaged in an extramarital affair with Ilhan Omar.
Omar’s campaign funded travel for the man she’s alleged to have an affair with. Now Omar denies the affair claim in the D.C. doctor’s divorce filing.
They’re not having an affair, she’s just “consulting” with him day and night.

WASHINGTON – A Washington, D.C., physician alleged in divorce filings Tuesday that her husband, a national political consultant, left her after becoming romantically involved with U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, a client of his fundraising business.
In an interview, Omar denied that she is separated or dating outside her marriage.
“I have no interest in really allowing the conversation about my personal life to continue,” she told WCCO-TV, cutting off further inquiry.
Omar avoided questions at a Tuesday night forum in Minneapolis and a spokesman declined a Star Tribune request for comment.
The freshman Democratic congresswoman has been legally married since last year to her longtime romantic companion, Ahmed Hirsi, the father of her three children in Minneapolis.
It’s the latest in a string of controversies facing the former one-term state legislator who catapulted to national political fame after her groundbreaking 2018 election. More
Guy Benson said it best:
Omar says she has “no desire” to discuss her personal life. I’m sure that’s true, but paying her alleged lover’s firm more than $200k in campaign funds warrants questions. https://t.co/Xw1QouYS8E

So will @IlhanMN be as open to scrutiny of her private life as she’s been to @realDonaldTrump – or will she claim that anyone that asks questions about her personal or private business is an anti-Muslim bigot and will #FakeNews @CNN cover for her? I *strongly* suspect the latter.

“Omar’s campaign paid Mynett’s firm, E Street Group, nearly $160,000 over the first six months of the year, according to federal campaign-finance records.”
