Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar’s house of cards is crashing down all around her and we demand answers.
Just five weeks ago she told multiple news media outlets this was all much to do about nothing.
She lied and we have the receipts. When WCCO reporter Esme Murphy asked her point-blank, “Are you separated from your husband? Are you dating someone?”
Omar said, “No, I am not. And like I said yesterday, I have no interest in allowing the conversation about my personal life to continue.”
From The New York Post: Rep. Ilhan Omar has filed for divorce from the father of her three kids, claiming the marriage is “irretrievable” — amid allegations that she had an affair with DC-based political consultant Tim Mynett.
The freshman congresswoman filed to split from husband Ahmed Hirsi on Friday in Minnesota, the state she represents, The Post has learned.
Omar filed on her 37th birthday, according to the US House of Representatives’ archives.
Omar and Hirsi were married in a religious ceremony in 2002. The two separated in 2008, then legally remarried in 2018.
“There has been an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage relationship,” the court documents filed in Minnesota say.
So what is a Democrat like Omar to do? Does she take responsibility for her actions? No, she blames the media. From The New York Post:
US Rep. Ilhan Omar suggested Monday that the press and her political foes are partly to blame for the demise of her marriage.
“Ilhan and Ahmed have been the object of speculation and innuendo from political opponents and the media,” according to a statement from her lawyer, referring to the Minnesota congresswoman and her husband, Ahmed Hirsi, and which the rep said he was issuing “on behalf” of Omar.
“This has taken a significant toll on Ilhan, Ahmed, and their three children.
“As with all marriages, this is intensely personal and a difficult time for their family,” the statement added.
“Just like any other family navigating this kind of transition, Ilhan wishes to have their privacy respected for themselves and their children and will not be commenting any further.”
Omar filed for divorce from Hirsi on Friday in Minneapolis.
