Ilhan Omar sent almost 1/3 of her campaign funds to the Democrat consultant she was having an affair with.
Omar hasn’t commented on the accusations, but there’s a possible second scandal involving the more than $200,000 that her campaign has spent with Mynett’s firm.
Of the $145,406 reported earnings by the E Street Group during the 2018 campaign cycle, $62,674 camefrom Omar’s campaign. Not counting payroll taxes and transfers to Minnesota’s Democratic Party, E Street Group was Omar’s second-largest vendor, according to FECdata. From Labor Day through the end of the year, E Street Group ate up more than 10% of her campaign’s spending (not counting transfers to other campaigns).
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.
The Omar campaign payments to the E Street Group, often reported as “fundraising consulting” fees on her FEC filings, have accelerated in the 2020 cycle. Her campaign has spent $160,000 at E Street this year, the campaign off year. That’s nearly one in every three dollars spent on her reelection (again, not including transfers to other campaigns or committees) going to her alleged lover.
Where is the Mainstream Press? This is a corporation scandal attacking a Congresswoman they have claimed is such a hero. We don’t know everything yet but this has the ability to hurt the entire Democrat party. Thanks to President Trump Nancy Pelosi has put the squad front in center in the Democrat party. She is part of the squad which the Media is holding up as honestly the leadership of the party.
This also raises many questions regarding Campaign Finance violations:
