Ilhan Omar: Tax Cheat, Liar, and Home-Wrecker

New allegations of an affair include possible violations of campaign-finance law.

Let’s just say that if Ilhan Omar were to “go back” to Somalia as President Donald Trump recently suggested, she might not survive. That’s because Somalia is 98.9% Muslim, and Muslims take a dim view of infidelity and they sometimes punish the unfaithful with death by stoning.

Omar, the Minnesota Democrat member of what we call the “Gang of Four,” already has a sordid past — she’s alleged to have committed tax fraud through a sham “marriage” to a man who’s likely her brother. Now she stands accused of being a home-wrecker. The Minneapolis Star Tribune, her hometown paper, reports, “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. … Dr. Beth Mynett said her husband, Omar consultant Tim Mynett, confessed to her that he was ‘romantically involved with and in love with’” Omar.

Not just romantically, either. It was a fairly lucrative relationship for Mynett, who reportedly raked in roughly $230,000 from Omar’s campaign since 2018, including $160,000 just this year — an off year. That’s nearly one out of every three dollars Omar spent in a district she won with 78% of the vote. It certainly calls into question whether the expenditures constitute campaign-finance violations.

As for Omar’s reaction? “I have no interest in allowing the conversation about my personal life to continue and so I have no desire to discuss it.”

She’s evidently too good for even a denial. Thus, her constituents — of whom Muslims comprise a fair percentage due to having the highest Somali population in the U.S. — face a choice in 2020. Do they circle the wagons because this unfaithful liar is a minority with a “D” after her name, or do they throw her under the bus for her legal and moral sins?
