Rep. Ilhan Omar appears to be more comfortable being seen in public with alleged lover and chief fundraiser Tim Mynett — now that the two are both divorced.
Omar, who denied the affair despite filing for divorce shortly after The Post reported on the dalliance, was seen out with Mynett last week, according to photos obtained by the Daily Mail.
The pair, who each finalized their respective divorces late last year, could be seen exiting DC-based Mediterranean restaurant Café 8 in photos that the outlet dated as being taken last Thursday.
In August, The Post was first to report that Mynett’s then-wife had alleged in court papers that he had walked out on their marriage after admitting to having an affair with the Somali-born US representative and declaring his love for Omar.
Dr. Beth Mynett said that her cheating spouse, Tim Mynett, told her in April that he was having an affair with the the Minnesota congresswoman, even making “shocking declaration of love” for Omar before ditching his wife and children.
“The parties physically separated on or about April 7, 2019, when Defendant told Plaintiff that he was romantically involved with and in love with another woman, Ilhan Omar,” court papers filed by the jilted wife read.
Omar and her then-husband, Ahmed Hirsi, filed for divorce less than two months after the affair allegations came to light.
According to court papers, he will be paid as much as $250,000 over six years to not discuss the affair or details of his former marriage publicly.
