Democratic Representative Ilhan Omar is so corrupt she belongs on the Carmel City Town Council.
Washington Free Beacon is reporting that the Minnesota Democrat is continuing to push cash from her campaign committee to her NOW-husband’s (she’s had a few) consulting firm.
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.
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, which is retrospect seems like it might have been factually inaccurate. Hmm…
Fun Fact: Omar’s campaign and the E Street Group also faced accusations of using campaign funds on personal travel.
Highlights That Satisfy From Publicly-Available Divorce Papers:
“Days prior to defendant’s devastating and shocking declaration of love for Rep. Omar and admission of their affair, he and Rep. Omar took the parties’ son to dinner to formally meet for the first time at the family’s favorite neighborhood restaurant while plaintiff was out of town. Rep. Omar gave the parties’ son a gift and the defendant later brought her back inside the family’s home.”

Uh, Oh! ‘Some People’ Did Something:
The National Legal and Policy Center filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission in August charging that Omar and Mynett broke the law by improperly using campaign funds to pay for Mynett to travel with her. This past quarter, Omar’s campaign disclosed $9,392 worth of travel reimbursements to the E Street Group, the new disclosure shows.
