    Ilhan Omar was accused of conducting an affair with her married aide in bombshell divorce documents Tuesday.

    Beth Jordan Mynett, 55, accused her husband Tim, 38, of leaving her for Omar, 37, telling her he was 'in love' with the radical Democrat.

    She said he even took their 13-year-old son to meet Omar at a neighborhood restaurant behind her back, days before telling her their marriage was over.

    The divorce documents were filed two weeks after DailyMail.com revealed that Omar and Mynett had been seen getting up close and personal since March.

    They were spotted dining and holding hands at a secluded Italian restaurant outside of Los Angeles in March. Mynett had tried to prevent a bystander from taking a video of them.

    But shortly after that, on April 7, he told his wife their marriage was over because he was 'romantically involved' and 'in love' with Omar.

    Photos show that Mynett and Omar have been constantly by each other's sides at events, traveling to Los Angeles, New York City, Austin and Seattle together.

    Mynett has even spent time with Omar's daughter Isra, 16, who is a budding activist, as the threesome were photographed together on two separate occasions, most recently in July.

    Omar's camp has paid Mynett's company - E Street Group - more than $250K in consulting fees and travel expenses, dating from last August until June 11, according to Federal Election Commission records.

    The intimate dinner in March came to light after DailyMail.com revealed in July how Omar had recently split with her husband Ahmed Hirsi, the father of her three children.

    Ilhan Omar is accused of having an affair with married aide Tim Mynett. DailyMail.com first revealed that they were getting up close and personal. They were seen together on May 26 at a Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) event - a month after he told his wife he was leaving her for Omar

    DailyMailTV revealed Omar was dining and holding hands with a mystery man at a secluded Italian restaurant outside of Los Angeles back in March. That man was Mynett, who tried to prevent a bystander from taking a video of the secret couple

    Filing for divorce: Beth Jordan Mynett has submitted divorce papers which accuse her husband of having an affair with Omar and even parading their relationship to their son behind her back

    Previously, Mynett worked as former Minnesota congressman Keith Ellison's national finance director. Omar (pictured with Mynett in May in Austin, Texas) took over Ellison's seat when he ran for Attorney General in Minnesota

    Rep. Ilhan Omar spotted with mystery man after filing for divorce


    According to the divorce documents, Jordan Mynett was stunned to hear the news but still told him she loved him and was 'willing to fight for the marriage'.

    However, Mynett insisted it was over.

    The scorned wife is seeking child support for their 13-year-old son, ownership of their family home and legal fees.

    Mynett and Omar - through her spokesperson Jeremy Slevin - had repeatedly refused to comment when asked by DailyMail.com if they were having an affair.

    Mynett is currently a partner at E Street Group, which bills itself as providing national progressive strategies for candidates, nonprofits and advocacy efforts.

    Mynett started the firm in July of 2018, according to LinkedIn - only one month before Omar started paying the company for its services.

    Previously, Mynett worked as former Minnesota congressman Keith Ellison's national finance director. Omar took over Ellison's seat when he ran for Attorney General.

    Federal Election Commission records show Omar's team began paying Mynett's company in August of 2018, splashing out $62,500 by the end of 2018.

    Payments continued into 2019, with $5,000, $10,000 and $12,000 chunks being shelled out every month, totaling just over $253,000 in a single year.

    In January, Mynett posted an image on his Instagram of Omar's name plaque outside of her congressional office, writing: 'It's been one hell of a journey. Incredibly proud of this fearless woman.'

    Mynett is currently living in a luxury residential complex in DC's trendy Petworth neighborhood where a two-bedroom apartment costs around $3,000 a month.

    DailyMail.com approached him outside but the veteran political operative initially refused to confirm his identity, saying: 'This is bizarre, I don't know what you're talking about.'

    When we spoke with him a second time as he pulled up in a bright blue Ford Mustang, Mynett told our reporter: 'No comment.'

When we spoke with him a second time, Mynett told our reporter: 'No comment.' Now his wife says he told her about the affair in April

    His rental pad is about a 10-minute drive from where he previously lived with his now estranged wife Beth Jordan Mynett, a high-flying doctor 17 years older than him, their young son and Beth's daughter from a previous marriage.

    Jordan Mynett, 55, who is medical director for the D.C. Department of Corrections, was similarly reluctant to answer any questions about her husband's relationship with Omar at the start of August.

    'I have no comment at this time,' she had told DailyMail.com earlier this month, speaking on the front step of the estranged couple's three-bed marital family home in northern DC, worth $900,000.

    'I'm not in any position to talk whatsoever but I thank you for your concern. I'm sorry I have no comment at this time. But thank you sir.'

    Mynett runs E Street Group with fellow veteran strategist William Hailer from a shared WeWork office space in DC.

    Their website currently has a single accessible page displaying the message: 'Accepting new clients by referral only.' But an archived version accessed by DailyMail.com includes a lengthy 'about us' section where Mynett reels off his career accomplishments and boats of close ties with 'national opinion leaders'.

    'Tim Mynett brings over 15 years of experience conducting high-level national fundraising and providing political and strategic advice to our clients at E Street Group,' it says.

    'He has continually developed and implemented successful fundraising plans for national nonprofits, progressive advocacy efforts, and Democratic leaders in Congress. Throughout his career he has raised of over $100 million in gifts, grants, and donations.'

    The profile goes on to say that Mynett has served as a lead fundraiser for a string of Dems including Ellison, Senator Jeff Merkley, Congresswoman Hilda Solis and Congressman Ron Kind.

    He's also worked for national non-profits and 'progressive organizations' including Angelina Jolie's Global Action for Children and the SEIU's Change that Works initiative focused on passing Obamacare.

    It adds: 'Having spent the majority of his career based in DC while conducting extensive client travel to every corner of the country Tim has cultivated strong relationships with national opinion leaders and is a sought-after advisor to a diverse group of constituencies.'

    Omar's team have refused to say exactly what work E Street or Mynett does for her, how much either is paid, or what role they played in her election campaign.

    Mynett has been spotted by Omar's sides at fundraising events, including at the California for Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) banquet in Woodland Hills in March.

    He was front and center for her speech, where the congresswoman made controversial remarks blaming 9/11 on 'someone doing something.'

    Timeline of Omar's two marriages:
    1997: Omar and her family settle in Minnesota after fleeing war-torn Somalia

    2002: She marries Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi in a religious ceremony but it is not recognized legally. The pair go on to have two children.

    2008: She and Hirsi separate. Because the marriage was never recognized by law, neither is the separation

    2009: Omar marries Ahmed Elmi in Minneapolis

    2010: He enrolls at North Dakota State University to study fine art and lives with Omar as well as her first husband

    2011: Omar claims she and Elmi split this year and he went back to the UK. She reconciles with Hirsi

    2012: Omar and Hirsi have their third child.

    Elmi is still in the US according to college officials and social media

    2013: Elmi starts working in London

    2017: Omar divorces Elmi

    2018: Omar marries Hirsi in a civil ceremony

    2018: The marriage is brought up during Omar's campaign for congress

    She denies it and it is largely ignored because of the lack of proof around it

    July 2019: President Trump thrusts the rumor back into the spotlight

    Later that month DailyMail.com reveals she has split from Hirsi

    August 2019: DailyMail.com reveals Omar was seen holding hands with married aide Tim Mynett; his wife files for divorce later that month


    The following day, Omar and Mynett were seen leaving the out-of-the-way Caffé Pinguini in Playa Del Rey.

    DailyMailTV learned that an eyewitness observed Omar and her companion holding hands while dining inside the bistro.

    'The bigger question is why they were at this particular restaurant,' said the man who took the video. 'You don't just stumble across Playa Del Rey on a chilly Sunday evening in March.

    'It's so out of the way. It's the sort of place you go when you don't want anyone to know where you are.'

    Omar's private life has become the subject of massive speculation amid accusations that her second husband Ahmed Nur Said Elmi is in fact her brother and she only married him to get him entry to the United States.

    She later divorced Elmi and remarried Hirsi, but now that marriage is headed for a second divorce.

    Omar has refused to address her marriages, leading to criticism from political rivals and her hometown newspaper.

    President Donald Trump has often targeted Omar — a freshman congresswoman who won her Minneapolis-based district with 78 percent of the vote — for her views and for her close alliance to firebrand congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York.

    He has alluded to Omar's complicated marriage history. 'There's a lot of talk about the fact that she was married to her brother. I know nothing about it,' Trump told reporters in June.

    Omar was born in Somalia in the Horn of Africa. She left her war-torn home when she was eight. She lived in a Kenyan refugee camp for four years before coming to the United States and settling in Minneapolis, the largest hub for Somali refugees in the country.

    She first married Hirsi in an Islamic ceremony in 2002 when she was 19. Six years later, after two children, the couple said they had 'reached an impasse in our life together,' and divorced.

    'Wow,' said Hirsi (pictured), when approached about the split by DailyMail.com outside his wife's apartment complex last month. 'I can't comment on that. I'm sorry, I just can't say anything,' he said before driving off in his BMW car

    Omar's private life has become the subject of massive speculation amid accusations that her second husband Ahmed Nur Said Elmi (left and right) is in fact her brother and she only married him to get him entry to the United States

    The following year Omar married Elmi, a British citizen, just two weeks after he entered the United States.

    He has been identified as her brother by many media outlets, though due to a lack of records in their war-torn country of birth that has not been fully proven or disproven.

    The Minneapolis Star-Tribune wrote in June that it 'could neither conclusively confirm nor rebut the allegation that (Elmi) is Omar's sibling.' Politifact and another myth-busting website, Snopes, came to similar conclusions.

    On their marriage application they gave their address as Columbia Heights, Minnesota, but were married 25 miles away in Eden Prairie at a nondescript single-story brick building that houses a county office and a library.

    Despite both being Muslim, the ceremony was conducted by Wilecia Harris, a Christian minister. 'If they had gone to an imam he would have almost certainly have known if they were related,' one Somali leader in Minnesota told DailyMail.com.

    That marriage lasted just two years but it was enough to allow Elmi to study alongside his new wife at North Dakota State University.

    Records suggest that Omar, Elmi and Hirsi all lived together for at least part of that time.

    Omar then had a third child with Hirsi in 2012 and in 2015 she filed a joint tax returnwith him — even though she was still legally married to Elmi.

    She finally divorced Elmi in 2017 and married Hirsi in a civil ceremony the following year.

    Now she has moved out of the family home and into her fourth-floor apartment. The Intercom system at the building lists 'Omar I' as a resident but has no mention of Hirsi.

    Omar will dismiss the whole debacle as a GOP smear campaign.

    Ilhan Omar’s Congressional District Listed As Worst District For Black Americans In US

    ....Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District, represented by Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, was listed this week as the worst congressional district in the country for black Americans.

    The financial website 24/7 Wall Street compiled a list of the 30 worst districts for black Americans by using data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Specifically, the list-makers honed in on metrics like median-household income, homeownership, unemployment, poverty, and educational achievement.....
