Ilhan Omar is paying big money to keep a shocking affair quiet.
Her personal scandals are hurting Democrats everywhere.
Ilhan Omar made a big hush money payment that sent her career in a nosedive.
Any time Ilhan Omar is in the news it’s always for the wrong reasons.
Usually she’s either being anti-Semitic or she’s supporting terrorist organizations.
Her personal life is an utter mess at the very least, and illegal and incestuous at worst.
Some media outlets report the FBI may be reviewing claims that she married her brother in an act of what critics claim was visa fraud.
As if that wasn’t enough drama for one person, she also allegedly got caught having an affair with political consultant Tim Mynett.
Mynett’s firm was paid $525,000 from Omar’s campaign in 2019 which was paid by campaign money.
The Daily Mail reported that Omar’s husband “discovered the truth about her torrid affair with her chief fundraiser when he went to her Washington D.C. apartment last spring and found the lovers lounging around in pajamas.”
“He suspected she was cheating but she kept telling him he was paranoid,” two separate sources confirmed with 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.”
“It wasn’t that he actually caught them in bed but they were clearly in a romantic situation,” one source went on to tell The Daily Mail.
While it was clearly a humiliating story for Ilhan Omar, her husband is being well paid to keep it to himself.
The Daily Mail reported:
The sources say the families of Hirsi and Omar hammered out a financial settlement that would give Hirsi tens of thousands of dollars over several years but only if he did not speak publicly about the marriage breakdown.
One source said the figure was as high as $250,000 over six years. Hirsi did not return DailyMail.com requests for comment.
Soon after the agreement was reached last year Hirsi, 40, traded in his old Nissan Maxima for a BMW 528i, which sells for $54,000 new.
These personal details are doing nothing to help Ilhan Omar in her own community as she seeks reelection in November.
She’s facing three challengers in the Democrat primary.
The Daily Mail reported that Ilhan Omar has lost a huge amount of support in her district’s Somali community because she doesn’t seem to be living according to her Muslim values.
Her alleged affair is not mere gossip, there are photos of them sharing an apartment together and there is also her support of LGBT rights and holding campaign events at a distillery.
All of these are at odds with the conservative Somali community that sent her to represent them in Congress.
If she’s not careful she’ll end up being a one term Congresswoman even though her district is overwhelmingly Democratic.
