Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has filed for a divorce from her husband, Ahmed Hirsi, in the wake of allegations that she had an affair with political consultant Tim Mynett, the New York Post reports.

The radical congresswoman filed for the divorce Friday in a Minnesota courthouse. She had married Hirsi in 2002 in an Islamic ceremony, but the two were not legally married. The couple separated in 2008 and were remarried, legally, in 2018.

Omar is still facing allegations that she had an affair with Mynett after Mynett's wife filed for divorce in August, claiming that her husband was romantically involved with Omar.
