Tim Mynett Wiki – Biography
Tim Mynett is a political aide and strategist who has been accused by his wife of ending their marriage over a romantic affair with Rep. Ilhan Omar.
Rumors have circulated in the past year on various occasions, regarding Omar’s professional or personal relationship to Mynett. They have been photographed together in multiple instances.

Dr. Beth Mynett says her cheating spouse, Tim Mynett, told her in April that he was having an affair with the Somali-born US representative — and that he even made a “shocking declaration of love” for the Minnesota congresswoman before he ditched his wife, alleges the filing, submitted in DC Superior Court on Tuesday.

“Got married! From partners in politics to life partners, so blessed. Alhamdulillah,” she wrote in the caption, ending with the Arabic word that translates in English to, “Praise be to God.”
Word of a romance between Omar and Mynett became more than just talk last August when Mynett’s then-wife, Beth Mynett, 55, filed for divorce from her 38-year-old husband.
In court papers, Beth Mynett claimed her husband’s traveling and work hours may have been “more related to his affair with Omar than to his actual work commitments,” FOX 9 of Minneapolis-St. Paul reported.
The Mynetts’ split was finalized in December. Beth and Tim Mynett are parents of a teenage son.
Last October, Omar filed for divorce from her husband, Ahmed Hirsi, the father of their three children.
“There has been an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage relationship,” Omar claimed in court documents filed on her 38th birthday, The New York Post reported at the time.
Omar claimed neither partner was seeking an order of protection and she asked the court to grant them “joint legal and physical custody” of their three minor children.
The Omar-Hirsi divorce was finalized in November, according to reports.
Hirsi then found a new girlfriend and remarried just 37 days later in Somalia, The New York Post reported.
Hirsi posted a photo of himself and a woman believed to be his new wife on Instagram in January.
“I look forward to this new chapter in my life and I ask you all to join me in celebration,” he captioned the photo.
According to The New York Post, Mynett’s wife, Beth Jordan Mynett, has cited an extramarital affair as the reason for her divorce filing. Specifically, she claims her husband “made a shocking declaration of love” for Omar before telling his wife he was leaving her for the Congresswoman.
Per the publication, a partial excerpt of the court filing reads, “The parties physically separated on or about April 7, 2019, when Defendant told Plaintiff that he was romantically involved with and in love with another woman, Ilhan Omar.”
The court papers further allege Beth’s belief that Mynett’s travel for Omar was personally, rather than professionally, motivated: “Defendant’s more recent travel and long work hours now appear to be more related to his affair with Rep. Omar than with his actual work commitments.”
According to The Post, Beth is seeking full custody of her son in the divorce. She further alleges in the court filing that Mynett “put their son in harm’s way” by bringing him out in public with Omar, “who at the time garnered a plethora of media attention along with death threats.”
Beth, 55, is a physician, according to the publication.
Both Omar and Mynett have children. Mynett has a 13-year-old son with his estranged wife, Beth, and Omar has three children with her first ex-husband.
Mynett, 38, has worked as a political aide and strategist for many politicians, including Omar. Omar’s campaign has paid Myett’s consulting group, E Street Group, over $230,000 since 2018, for consulting services, according to the Federal Election Commission.

Omar Has Been Married Twice Since 2002
Omar has been married twice. First, she married a man named Ahmed Hirsi, who she called “the love of her life” in a statement. They separated in 2008, according to her statement, after seven years of marriage. Omar then married her second husband, British citizen Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, in 2009. They divorced in 2011.
Omar provided a full statement accounting for her marital timeline in order to squash entirely unfounded rumors that she had married her brother when she married Elmi. She said in the statement, “Insinuations that Ahmed Nur Said Elmi is my brother are absurd and offensive.”
In that statement, Omar said she had “reconciled” with her first husband, Ahmed Hirsi, and that they had been together since 2011. It’s unclear if they’re still together.
