Rep. Ilhan Omar Just Announced That She Married The Guy She Said She Wasn’t Dating

Written by K. Walker on March 12, 2020

The fourth time’s a charm!

Probably because it’s not her brother this time.

Wait — is it the fourth time or the third? Someone’s gonna need to get Karl Rove over here with his whiteboard.

Or maybe just a corkboard with the pins and the yarn…

It’s all rather complicated.

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar(D-MN) has just announced on Instagram that she got married. Although she doesn’t identify the groom, the photo appears to be of her and her head fundraiser, Tim Mynett. The caption is also telling, “From partners in politics to life partners so blessed.”

The “Squad” member has been romantically linked to Mynett for several months, but both Mynett and Rep. Omar had denied the affair after Mynett’s estranged wife came forward saying that her husband was seeking a divorce because he was in love with Omar.

Rep. Omar and her husband filed for divorce in October just two months after Mynett’s wife made the affair public.

Congresswoman Omar had refused to confirm the affair, instead, she insisted that her private life was private.

Not anymore.

It appears that now that both divorces have been finalized, it’s time to go public.

“From partners in politics to life partners, so blessed,” Omar captioned a black and white shot of her and her new husband canoodling with rings on their fingers.

While Omar, 38, didn’t identify her hubby, the photo appeared to be of Tim Mynett, 55, her chief fundraiser who she’s been romantically linked to.

The pair, who finalized their respective divorces late last year, were spotted exiting DC-based Mediterranean restaurant Café 8 last Thursday.

This is one personal social media post she’s not going to delete… at least for now.

Conservatives on Twitter are having a field day with the news.

Well, let’s see how long this lasts… Rep. Omar doesn’t exactly have a stellar record when it comes to marriage.
