Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has been the subject of much controversy in her very short time in office. Much of that controversy surrounds the mysterious nature of her multiple marriages and alleged affair.
Now, the Washington Free Beacon has reported that Omar was caught — after being accused of breaking up political consultant Tim Mynett’s marriage — paying $215,000 from her campaign to Mynett’s firm, E Street Group, in the fourth quarter of 2019.
According to the report, “Omar’s new committee filings submitted Friday morning show that between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31, 2019, her committee made $215,000 in additional payments to the E Street Group … The payments were reported as going toward consulting, direct mail, research services, travel expenses, advertisements, and graphic design.”
Mynett’s group receives the bulk of Omar’s campaign’s vendor spending. This $215,000 from October to January is in addition to another $310,000 in payments made to the group in the previous three quarters of 2019.
E Street Group has now received over half a million dollars from Omar’s campaign coffers.
Omar has refused to respond to requests for comments on her alleged relationship with Mynett, but the two were recently spotted attending a Democrat megadonor soirée in November.
Dr. Beth Mynett alleged in divorce filings retrieved by the New York Post in August that Tim Mynett had confessed having an affair with Omar to her. The episode ended in a swift but acrimonious divorce.
Omar’s own marriage crumbled soon thereafter. The Minnesota congresswoman filed from divorce from Ahmed Hirsi in October, citing “an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage relationship.”
