Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar’s campaign continues to funnel cash to a political consulting firm founded by an ascending left-wing operative she recently married.

The Washington Free Beacon’s Joe Schoffstall reports:


Omar’s new committee filings, posted Wednesday afternoon, show that during the first three months of the year, the campaign paid $292,905 to the E Street Group. E Street is a political consulting firm owned by Omar’s husband, Tim Mynett. The cash, which reportedly went toward an array of services that included fundraising and advertisements, accounted for over 40 percent of the campaign’s $674,892 in disbursements. Omar raised $456,374 during the quarter.

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

The Omar campaign also doled out $525,000 last year to Mynett’s firm, its top vendor. At the time, Omar and Mynett were married to different people, but Mynett’s wife alleged they were having an affair. The two denied that they had a romantic relationship. Omar’s campaign and the E Street Group also faced accusations of using campaign funds on personal travel.

Rumors of an affair between Omar and Mynett garnered headlines after divorce papers from Mynett’s ex-wife, Dr. Beth Mynett, were made public last summer.

Both Omar and Mynett denied the affair, with Mynett going so far as to claim they were false rumors to derail his career.

Omar defended her campaign’s business relationship with E Street Group in a series of Tweets last month.

Her campaign is by far the largest client at the firm.

The Free Beacon doesn’t make mistakes – could be that the reason DOJ hasn’t jumped Omar is b/c plans are being made for her exile instead of incarcerating her here or at Gitmo after trial – exile the is the route that some imams have been given for domestic terrorism collaboration (as the one in Oregon was exiled for.) – yet another thing we we wait to find out about.

If she were a Republican, they would file charges against her and put her in jail. Even Hillary thought she and her bunch were going to jail if Trump won. So what happened?

I’d prefer to deport Omar back to her Muslim nation where her BIG MOUTH and opinions will NOT be tolerated by the leaders in that nation.
