Minnesota Congresswoman Ilan Omar is once again in the middle of a massive controversy.
This one has everything – a sex scandal, big money, and accusations of illegal activity.
And Ilhan Omar is sitting on one slush fund that could prove her guilt in this crime.
Ilhan Omar stands accused of breaking up the marriage of D.C. political consultant Tim Mynett after their affair went public.
Omar hired Mynett’s firm for consulting services, but after their affair became a matter of public record, critics accused Omar of using campaign funds to carry on their tryst.
Now those accusations are
The New York Post reports:
Rep. Ilhan Omar paid another $150,000 to Tim Mynett’s political consulting group in the three months after The Post first revealed allegations the pair were romantically involved, records show.
The 37-year-old Minnesota congresswoman’s campaign has funneled $146,712.63 to Mynett’s E Street Group since The Post in August reported allegations she was having an affair with her paid consultant, records show.
The latest payments to Mynett’s group were for digital advertising, fundraising consulting and video production.
When news of the alleged affair broke, Omar had already paid $223,000 through her campaign since 2018 for fundraising consulting, internet advertising, digital communications, and travel expenses to the E Street Group — taking the latest total to $370,000.
Omar’s fellow “Squad” members, Rashida Tlaib and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, are also both facing Federal Election Commission complaints.
While the evidence against all three is strong, the election commission is paralyzed because only three of the commission’s six seats are filled which leaves it one short of the necessary number of members to take action.
