The National Legal and Policy Center files a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission alleging the Ilhan Omar campaign improperly used campaign funds to pay her alleged lover’s company.
In a complaint filed with the Federal Elections Commission on Wednesday, August 28, 2019, the (conservative) National Legal and Policy Center alleges that Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) illegally used campaign funds to pay her alleged paramour, Tim Mynett. Mynett’s company, E Street, is listed as campaign consultants for the Omar campaign.
From The Daily Caller:
- Rep. Ilhan Omar used campaign funds to fund her affair with married Democratic consultant Tim Mynett, according to a Federal Election Commission (FEC) complaint filed by the conservative National Legal and Policy Center.
- Omar’s campaign began funding travel for Tim Mynett’s company less than a week before the Democratic consultant confessed to his wife he was having an affair with the congresswoman, Dr. Beth Jordan Mynett said in a divorce filing Tuesday.
- Omar and Tim Mynett have been pictured together at multiple events, including a late-March CAIR fundraiser in which Omar described the 9/11 terror attacks as “some people did something.”
The amount the Omar campaign spent on E Street’s “consulting” work was substantial. According to the Washington Examiner, “nearly one of every three dollars spent on Ilhan Omar’s campaign has gone to her alleged lover’s firm,” which totaled well over $200,000. Even more shocking, the Washington Examiner reports, is that a big chunk of that money was spent AFTER the 2018 primary campaign:
Here’s the odd thing: The overwhelming majority of Omar’s funds spent on the E Street Group were paid after she won the contested primary and during the totally noncompetitive general election race in her D+26 district. Contrary to FEC rules, Omar’s filings did not designate whether her E Street Group disbursements (or any of her disbursements) were for the primary election or the general election.
In other words, even though Omar was pretty much a lock to win the general election, she continued to spend huge sums of money to E Street for “campaign consulting.”
The complaint comes on the heels of the bombshell report that Mynett’s wife had filed for divorce from the democratic consultant. In the divorce documents, Mynett’s wife, Dr. Beth Jordan Mynett, accuses Mynett of putting their 13 year old child “in danger” after she discovered that he had taken the child to eat “at the family’s favorite restaurant” with Omar and then had Omar come into the family’s home afterward around the time that Omar was receiving death threats for her anti-Semitic statements.

Per her usual reaction, Omar denied the affair in an interview on CBS-WCCO, saying, “No, I am not. As I said yesterday, I have no interest in allowing the conversation about my personal life to continue and so I have no desire to discuss it.”
One would have to think that at some point Omar is actually going to have to discuss the scandals swirling around her “personal life.” Hopefully that will occur sooner than later.
