Ilhan Omar, the controversial freshman Congresswoman known as a member of the progressive, anti-Trump “Squad,” has filed for divorce from her husband. The divorce comes amid allegations from the wife of a DC political consultant that Omar was having an affair with her husband.

Omar called her marriage to Ahmed Hirsi “irretrievable.” They have three children together.

Hirsi and Omar had previously divorced in 2008 before getting legally remarried last year. The congresswoman requested joint legal and physical custody of their children.
