The New York Post reported a high-profile divorce on Tuesday. To be precise, a woman in court records said her husband cheated on her and continued with the married MP Ilhan Omar.
Tim Mynett, Omar's alleged partner, was a fundraiser for Omar's 2018 and 2020 campaigns.
Omar has not commented on the allegations, but there is a possible second scandal affecting the more than $ 200,000 her campaign has spent on Mynett's company.
Of the $ 145,406 reported by the E Street Group in the 201
Here's the weird thing about it: The vast majority of Omar's money spent on the E Street Group was paid out after winning the contested primary and during the totally uncompetitive general election campaign in their D + 26 district. In contrast to the FEC rules, Omar's documents did not state whether their payouts for the E Street Group (or any of their payouts) were for the primary or general elections.
Omar campaign payments to the E Street Group, often reported as fundraising fees for their FEC submissions, accelerated in the 2020 cycle. Your campaign spent $ 160,000 on E Street this year. That's almost every third dollar spent on reelection (also without transfers to other campaigns or committees) and goes to their alleged lover.
Omar did not answer the questions of Post on the alleged affair. Her congress office refused to answer my questions and instead sent an e-mail address for the campaign. Your campaign did not respond to an email.
