Ilhan Omar is in huge trouble.
After her campaign got implicated in this massive money scandal, one major allegation broke that could jeopardize her future in Congress.
And now, Omar is in full crisis mode as she struggles to recover from what could be a career-ending move.
Minnesota Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has made a name for herself as one of the most outrageous members of Nancy Pelosi’s Congress.
And from outrageous attacks against President Trump to anti-Semitic comments and views, Omar has made it clear just how radical she really is.
But while Omar has been busy making a name for herself as one of the newest members of the far-left’s congressional wing, her campaign has been in full meltdown after one massive money scandal broke.
And it has to do with a vendor that Omar herself may be dating.
The Daily Mail reports, “Ilhan Omar has been seen getting up close and personal with married aide Tim Mynett, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal. Last week, DailyMailTV revealed Omar was dining and holding hands with a mystery man at a secluded Italian restaurant outside of Los Angeles back in March. That man can now be identified as Mynett, who had tried to prevent a bystander from taking a video of them.”
Normally, a member of Congress being in a relationship with someone isn’t a major story.
But the real bomb drops when it’s revealed just how much money Omar’s campaign has been paying Mynett.
“Omar’s camp has paid Mynett’s company – E Street Group – more than $250K in consulting fees and travel expenses, dating from last August until June 11, according to Federal Election Commission records,” adds the Daily Mail.
This is a blatant attempt to funnel Omar’s campaign money back into her significant other’s pockets.
And by extension, this also means her own.
$250,000 dollars is a lot of money, and Omar’s campaign is set to dish out even more to Mynett’s company as the Minnesota Congresswoman prepares to run for re-election next year.
“Federal Election Commission records show Omar’s team began paying Mynett’s company in August of 2018, splashing out $62,500 by the end of 2018. Payments continued into 2019, with $5,000, $10,000 and $12,000 chunks being shelled out every month, totaling just over $253,000 in a single year,” adds the Daily Mail.
This is a serious breach of ethics.
Not only is Omar making headlines for her outrageous statements as a member of Congress, but she’s also now making the news for blatantly funneling money from her campaign account back to herself.
The matter is even worse because Mynett remains married to his now estranged wife. Omar has separated with her husband earlier this year.
“Mynett and Omar, through her spokesperson Jeremy Slevin – repeatedly refused to comment when asked by DailyMail.com if they were having an affair,” concludes the Daily Mail.
