Popular Muslim congresswoman Ilhan Omar is about to get hit with divorce papers, according to a new report.
Her husband, Ahmed Hirsi, reportedly wants a divorce after allegations came out last week in divorce filings — that Ilhan Omar had a side dude.
The New York Post is reporting that Ahmed "is poised to file for divorce after the revelation in a bombshell court filing that she allegedly had an affair with DC political consultant Tim Mynett."
They continued, "The Minnesota congresswoman and her husband allegedly separated in March, and Omar asked Hirsi to divorce her around that time because she didn't want to file the papers — but Hirsi refused, telling her if she wanted a divorce she should do it herself, said the source, who has known both parties for 20 years."
And there's more. The NY newspaper added, "The husband allegedly changed his mind after Tim Mynett's wife last week filed bombshell divorce papers claiming her spouse was having an affair with the Somali-born US representative — with Hirsi said to be angry he had been made to look the fool by the allegations of an extramarital affair."
The New York Post is the source that broke news of the bombshell allegations against Omar last week. At the time Congresswoman Omar told a local CBS affiliate that she and her husband were still together and refused to answer further questions.
Her official bio reads: Born in Somalia, Rep. Omar and her family fled the country’s civil war when she was eight. The family spent four years in a refugee camp in Kenya before coming to the United States in 1990s. In 1997, she moved to Minneapolis with her family. As a teenager, Rep. Omar’s grandfather inspired her to get involved in politics. Before running for office, she worked as a community educator at the University of Minnesota, was a Policy Fellow at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs and served as a Senior Policy Aide for the Minneapolis City Council.
