Just last week, the news broke that Omar was headed to her second divorce from Ahmed Hirsi. Now, a photo was revealed last week of Mynett and Rep. Omar holding hands at a restaurant in Los Angeles this past March.
Mynett is married to Dr. Beth Mynett, but the Daily Mail confirmed that he has left their marital home and is living in an apartment in Washington D.C that costs about $3,000 a month.
Mynett has previously worked for Keith Ellison, Minnesota’s current Attorney General, when he was in Congress as his National Finance Director. Now, he works as a partner at E Street Group, a company that says it provides national progressive strategies for candidates, nonprofits and advocacy efforts.
Omar’s campaigned has paid Mynett’s company, E Street Group, for that $250k in travel and consulting fees that go back as far as August of 2018 and end in June of 2019. Omar’s team has refused to give details on what E Street Group does for her campaign.
State Representative Steve Drazkowski (R-Mazeppa) has called on his congresswoman, Angie Craig (D-MN), to investigate Representative Ilhan Omar for “federal tax fraud, federal immigration fraud, federal student loan fraud and state violations of surgery, bigamy, kickbacks, and acts of campaign fraud and abuse.” Omar was fined by the state of Minnesota earlier this year for using campaign funds for personal expenses.
