Alabama Republicans seek to expel Ilhan Omar from Congress

Alabama Republicans seek to expel Ilhan Omar from Congress

In divorce filings first obtained by the Post, Tim's wife, Dr. Beth Mynett, alleges her husband confessed in April to having an affair with Omar and even made a "shocking declaration of love" of the lawmaker. According to Sharia law which the vast majority of Muslims strictly adhere to, infidelity and adultery carry with them very harsh sentences. The congresswoman was responding to a photo taken by a Pacific Standard columnist that showed her speaking at a podium at an event in Minnesota with a bodyguard standing directly behind her.

"As a pediatrician, but also as a mother and a former head of state, I am deeply shocked that children are forced to sleep on the floor in overcrowded facilities, without access to adequate healthcare or food, and with poor sanitation conditions", she said. "As I said yesterday, I have no interest in really allowing the conversation about my personal life to continue and so I have no desire to discuss it". Omar is a naturalized US citizen from Somalia. Omar, 37, was seen with Mynett at a California restaurant in March of this year.

Follows Alabama GOP's resolution for Minnesota congresswoman to be expelled from the House...

The resolution, which urges the state's elected congressional delegation to launch the expulsion process for Omar, was passed over the weekend during a summer meeting in Auburn, Ala., AL.com reported. Since Hanes proposed the resolution late in the week it did not go through the ALGOP Resolutions committee, thus needed a two thirds majority of the State Executive Committee to pass; which it did easily.

The state Republicans also voiced opposition to Omar's public support of the anti-Israel boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movement.

Omar lashed out at the Alabama Republicans on Tuesday: "Sorry, but this is a representative democracy", Omar tweeted.

In that same tweet, Omar suggested that if Republicans wanted to "clean up politics" they should not nominate "an accused child molester as your Senate candidate".

The most recent threat caps a hard week in the news for Omar as she faced another racist charge to return back to Somalia from former Alabama Supreme Court justice, Roy Moore. "I was elected with 78 percent of the vote by the people of Minnesota's 5th District, not the Alabama Republican Party".
