New details involving far-left Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) marital scandal emerged on Friday after a British publication reported that Omar is paying her ex-husband to stay quiet about her alleged affair.

The Daily Mail reported that Omar’s husband, Ahmed Hirsi, “discovered the truth about her torrid affair with her chief fundraiser [Tim Mynett] when he went to her Washington D.C. apartment last spring and found the lovers lounging around in pajamas.”

Multiple sources told The Daily Mail that Hirsi left “angry and humiliated” after learning about the affair.

“He suspected she was cheating but she kept telling him he was paranoid,” a source told The Daily Mail. “He told her he wanted to move down to D.C. to be with her but she insisted he should stay in Minneapolis with the children. Eventually he surprised her down there and his worst fears were confirmed.”

Sources told The Daily Mail that Omar allegedly agreed to a financial settlement with Hirsi that would pay him tens of thousands of dollars per year, up to $250,000 total, “but only if he did not speak publicly about the marriage breakdown.”

The Daily Mail reported that sources in the Somalia community in Omar’s district say that Omar has “embarrassed” them and that they have lost faith in her.

The source said that the embarrassment that Omar has caused the Somalia community comes from the alleged affair, her decision to hold an event at a distillery, and her embrace of LGBT rights.

“It’s almost as if she is deliberately trying to turn her Somali supporters against her,” a source told The Daily Mail. “She is as a figurehead for us, the most famous Somali in America and she had embarrassed us. She is the face of the Somali community.”

Omar has funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars of campaign donations to Mynett, according to Federal Election Committee (FEC) records.

The Washington Free Beacon reported:

Omar’s new committee filings submitted Friday morning show that between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31, 2019, her committee made $215,000 in additional payments to the E Street Group, a firm run by political consultant Tim Mynett, Omar’s alleged boyfriend. The payments were reported as going toward consulting, direct mail, research services, travel expenses, advertisements, and graphic design.

The committee reported hauling in $403,000 in individual contributions while disbursing $404,000 over the last three months of 2019. The $215,000 paid to Mynett’s group for its services accounts for 53 percent of the total disbursements from the campaign during this time.

Over the first three quarters of 2019, Omar’s campaign paid out a total of $310,000 to the E Street Group. Accounting for the fourth-quarter payments, Mynett’s firm collected a total of $525,000 from Omar’s campaign in 2019.

The latest developments to emerge from her alleged martial affair are separate from the allegations that she allegedly married her brother.

The FBI is reportedly reviewing evidence that it has received indicating that Omar married her brother, according to The New York Post, which added that the FBI was also planning on sharing its findings with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials and the U.S. Department of Education.
