Ilhan Omar Continues To Dump Big Bucks Into Alleged Boyfriend’s Firm

Published

on

Over half of Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar’s campaign expenditures in the last quarter of 2019 went to her alleged boyfriend’s consulting firm, according to Federal Election Commission filings released Friday.

Omar’s campaign paid $217,000 to E Street Group LLC between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31 for research services, digital advertising, fundraising consulting, travel and more, filings show. The firm is run by Democratic consultant Tim Mynett, who was accused by his ex-wife in August of having an affair with Omar.

The fourth-quarter spending figures represent yet another significant uptick in the level of campaign funds Omar has dedicated to Mynett’s firm.

In the third quarter of 2019, Omar disbursed about $146,713 to E Street Group, and in the 10-month period prior, from August 2018 to June 2019, her total spending with the firm was $223,000.

In total, Mynett’s firm has received $587,000 from Omar’s campaign, the bulk of which was received after he was alleged to be dating the congresswoman.

The Washington Free Beacon first reported Omar’s fourth-quarter campaign payments to Mynett’s firm.

A Washington, D.C., judge finalized Mynett’s divorce from his ex-wife, Beth Mynett, in December.

“[Through] extensive documentation and his own words, Tim acknowledged he has been engaged in an extramarital romantic relationship with Ilhan Omar, which proceeded and precipitated the divorce,” Beth Mynett said during the final divorce hearing, only to be interrupted by a seemingly stunned Tim Mynett, who asked that she stop when Omar was brought up, according to Fox News.

Omar also finalized a divorce with her ex-husband, Ahmed Hirsi, in November amid her alleged infidelity.

Tim Mynett has been living on and off with Omar at a D.C. apartment, the Daily Mail reported in October. The two have been pictured together at various events across the country in 2019.

Omar continues to divert campaign funds to Tim Mynett’s firm as her campaign faces an FEC complaint by a conservative watchdog group over the payments.

The complaint honed in on the $21,547 in travel expenses Omar’s campaign paid E Street Group starting in April, which coincided with the start of her alleged affair with Tim Mynett.

“If Ilhan for Congress reimbursed Mynett’s LLC for travel so that Rep. Omar would have the benefit of Mynett’s romantic companionship, the expenditures must be considered personal in nature,” the National Legal and Policy Center said in its complaint, which was filed in August.

NLPC investigator Tom Anderson previously told the Daily Caller News Foundation: “We believe Representative Ilhan Omar may have touched the third rail of campaign finance law: disbursing campaign funds for personal use. It’s a brazen act Representative Omar was caught doing before in Minnesota and all of the evidence we’ve seen tells us she’s probably doing it again.”

Omar’s campaign did not immediately return a request for comment.

    Of course she didn’t return any comments, she’s ripping her people off. What do you expect her to say? That woman needs to be brought up on charges quick. Like yesterday. What’s the matter with the FBI. Are they still involved with the Demorats and keeping them safe from prosecution???

    I’m expecting her to claim immunity under Westfall or Speech and Debate. Congressional immunity laws need to change, unfortunately, the corrupt Members are th ones tasked with making the changes.

      Why do you think the Democrat controlled congress passed that law?? Wasn’t it somewhere in ’71??

      The Speech or Debate Clause is a clause in the United States Constitution (Article I, Section 6, Clause 1). The clause states that members of both Houses of Congress

      …shall in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest during their attendance at the Session of their Respective Houses, and in going to and from the same; and for any Speech or Debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other Place.

      The intended purpose is to prevent a President or other officials of the executive branch from having members arrested on a pretext to prevent them from voting a certain way or otherwise taking actions with which the President might disagree.

      A similar clause in many state constitutions protects members of state legislatures in the United States. Legislators in non-U.S. jurisdictions may be protected by a similar doctrine of parliamentary immunity.
