Dr. Beth Mynett, a Washington DC mom, is claiming that her political-consultant husband left her for Representative Ilhan Omar.
Beth Mynett said that her cheating husband, Tim Mynett, told her in April that he was having an affair with Omar. She was also informed by her husband that he even made a “shocking declaration of love” for the Minnesota congresswoman.
“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 say.
“Defendant met Rep. Omar while working for her,’’ the document states. “Although devastated by the betrayal and deceit that preceded his abrupt declaration, Plaintiff told Defendant that she loved him, and was willing to fight for the marriage."
“Defendant, however, told her that was not an option for him’’ and moved out the next day, the papers continue.
According to the filing, “It is clear to Plaintiff that her marriage to Defendant is over and that there is no hope of reconciliation."
Beth Mynett is asking primary physical custody of her and her husband’s son in part because of Tim Mynett’s “extensive travel” with Omar — which isn’t specifically part of his job description, the document stated.
“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,” the court papers say.
The doctor asserted that she doesn’t trust her husband’s judgment with their son anymore — in part because of his involvement with Omar.
“By way of example, days prior to Defendant’s devastating and shocking declaration of love for Rep. Omar and admission of their affair, he and Rep. Omar took the parties’ son to dinner to formally meet for the first time at the family’s favorite neighborhood restaurant while Plaintiff was out of town,” the papers stated.
