UNBELIEVABLE: Almost HALF of Ilhan Omar Campaign Money Went to One Group
Last year, it was discovered that Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar was in a relationship with a married man. That man we learned was Tim Mynett who owns a consulting firm.
Government watchdog group Judicial Watch fortunately uncovered some bad spending and filed an ethics complaint against Omar for her spending. Overall the group has filed complaints against her for tax fraud, marriage fraud, immigration fraud, and identity fraud. This is just another thing to add to the list.
Judicial Watch learned that 40% of Omar’s campaign funds went to her boyfriend’s firm. That is cause for some serious suspicion.
The Washington Examiner reported:
In the second half of 2019, out of every $10 that Ilhan For Congress spent, $4 went to the E Street Group, the political consulting group run by Tim Mynett, Rep. Ilhan Omar’s alleged boyfriend.
And more than 90% of the E Street Group’s entire earnings reported to the FEC came from Ilhan For Congress.
According to the campaign’s latest fourth-quarter filing of last year, $216,564.64, or more than half of Ilhan For Congress’s spending, went to the E Street Group. Omar’s team reported a total of $403,139.73 in disbursements to retain her seat in an overwhelmingly Democratic district. In the third quarter, Omar’s campaign allocated $146,712.64 of its $493,389.80 in disbursements to the E Street Group.
That means that, in half a year, $363,277.28 of her campaign’s total reported disbursements went to her alleged paramour’s firm, one that seems to have not existed prior to the last election cycle. In fact, of the $677,913.44 that the E Street Group reported receiving from campaigns to the FEC for the entirety of its existence, a majority, $369,551.02, came from Ilhan For Congress.
Just recently The Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board ordered that Omar must reimburse her campaign committee $3,500 for personal out of state travel as well as help on her tax returns and she must pay a civil penalty for using funds for personal travel.
She must also pay a civil penalty to the state of Minnesota for using campaign money to travel to Florida.
The official report said:
Rep. Omar must personally reimburse the Omar committee $3,469.23. This reimbursement payment is the total amount of campaign funds that were used for purposes not permitted by statute in 2016 and 2017. Rep. Omar must provide documentation within 30 days from the date of this order showing the deposit of the reimbursement into the Omar committee’s account.
A civil penalty of $500 is assessed against Rep. Ilhan Omar personally for the $207 payment in violation of Minnesota Statutes section 211B.12. Rep. Omar must personally pay the $500 by check or money order made payable to the State of Minnesota. Payment must be within 30 days of the date of this order.
