Ilhan Omar blames media and politics for her failed marriage

 

Minnesota's Democratic Representative Ilhan Omar has filed for divorce. She has insinuated that this was "partly" the fault of the media and her political opponents. The question is, is it true?

Just this June, Omar had to pay thousands due to her filing joint tax returns with a man she's not married to, and not her soon to be ex-husband Ahmed Hirsi. They've become a hot topic due to their unusual relationship of being an on-and-off couple within the span of 17 years. If you're not married and still young, that's still acceptable. Sensible people who are married won't do that, they'll be divorcing each other before, you know, filing joint marriage tax returns with somebody else. 

 

Just this month, her political consultant Tim Mynett is facing a divorce himself and Omar is included in the papers. Mynett's wife pointed her finger at Omar, saying she is her husband's mistress. It is also worth noting that Omar filed divorce on Friday, just an hour before the Mynett's first hearing was postponed. 

 

In a press conference this Monday, Omar did not subtly blame the media and her political foes. She straight up blames them for it. 

 

Omar’s attorney, Jaime Driggs, released a statement on behalf of Omar:

 

Ilhan has filed for divorce from her husband Ahmed. As with all marriages, this is intensely personal and a difficult time for their family. For years, Ilhan and Ahmed have been the object of speculation and innuendo from political opponents and the media. This has taken a significant toll on Ilhan, Ahmed, and their three children. Just like any other family navigating this kind of transition, Ilhan wishes to have their privacy respected for themselves and their children and will not be commenting any further.

 

The three children will be under joint custody and Omar will be legally free to do anything she wants.

 

She also faces controversy over allegations she committed fraud and married her brother.
