UPDATE! Omar Could Face Prison Time For Funneling Campaign Funds To Lover
Rep. Ilhan Omar was accused of having an affair with a married man, whom she allegedly funneled large sums of money to through her campaign. The claim was made in divorce documents filed this week.
The New York Postreported “The 37-year-old congresswoman and mom of three paid Tim Mynett and his E. Street Group approximately $230,000 through her campaign since 2018 for fundraising consulting, digital communications, Internet advertising, and travel expenses.”
The only problem is Mr. Mynett’s job description had nothing to do with traveling, according to his wife in the divorce papers. Tim Mynett’s “extensive travel” with Omar isn’t exactly part of his job description, the document says.
“This arrangement where Ilhan is paying her lover consulting fees could be illegal if he’s not doing the work,” said National Legal and Policy Center Chairman Peter Flaherty. “And we’ll be asking the FEC for an investigation to determine the nature and level of his work product.”
