The list of Democrat Representative Ilhan Omar’s dirty deeds gets longer.
This time she was caught funneling over $850,000 in campaign cash to her husband’s firm.
According to The Daily Wire:
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) said Tuesday that she wants to dismantle economic and political systems that “prioritize profit without considering who is profiting” even as her re-election campaign has continued to funnel hundreds of thousands of dollars to her new husband’s consulting firm.
Omar made the remarks during a press conference in Minnesota, saying, “As long as our economy and political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shut out, we will perpetuate this inequality. So we cannot stop at the criminal justice system. We must begin the work of dismantling the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.”
Omar’s remarks come as a new report was released Tuesday night that showed she has continued to pump hundreds of thousands of dollars into her new husband’s consulting firm, including $189,000 in March.
The New York Post reported:
The payments between the Minneapolis Democratic congresswoman and Tim Mynett prompted at least one ethics complaint in 2019 after The Post first revealed allegations — made by Mynett’s then-wife in her divorce filing — that Omar was having an affair with the member of her political consulting team, who was at the time married to another woman. Omar was married to her second husband at the time.
But that doesn’t appear to have stopped the now-married couple, with Mynett’s E Street Group collecting $292,814.99 from his wife’s campaign this year for digital advertising, fundraising consulting and research services, according to the Federal Election Commission filings.
In total, Mynett has received a whopping $878,930.65 from Omar’s campaign since he began working for her in 2018, raising eyebrows among watchdogs and political law experts who say the practice is rife with cronyism.
Omar married her current husband just two months after they were accused of having an affair.
