Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, who’s long been the subject of questions over alleged immigration fraud and campaign violations, is now at the center of yet another scandal – one that, of course, you’ll never hear from the liberal media.
It turns out Omar funneled more than 70 percent – about $1.1 million, to be exact – of her campaign’s expenditures between July 23 and Sept. Sept 30 to a political consulting firm owned by her new husband, Tim Mynett, according to a new report out form the Washington Free Beacon. Combined with payments she’d already made to the E Street Group, that brings the total she’s paid her husband’s company for her 2020 campaign to $2.7 million. The exorbitant amount of money has allegedly paid for her campaign’s advertisements, consulting, travel expenses, and production costs.
Omar married Mynett back in March after first denying having a relationship with him. Mynett’s ex-wife had previously accused the congresswoman of having an affair with Mynett while the two were still married, and while Omar was still married to her former husband Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi.
It's not the first time Omar and her campaign have fun afoul of the law - that we know of. The Minnesota Campaign Finance Board over the summer ordered Omar to repay $3,500 to her campaign along with a $500 civil penalty after determining that she broke campaign finance law by using campaign money to pay for out-of-state travel.
