Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar’s campaign paid millions to her husband’s media firm for consultations. The campaign gave him an additional $138,000 right before she severed ties. This followed her successful re-election, federal campaign finance filings show.
Omar’s husband, Tim Mynett, raked in millions during the 2020 campaign season from Omar’s campaign through his firm, the E Street Group LLC.
This is an addition to the nearly $2.8 million her campaign had already paid Mynett’s firm.
About severing ties, she said it might not look good.
What she did might be legal, but it’s definitely not ethical. She’s a grifter.
Omar, a Somalian refugee, married Mynett, her third husband who is not her brother, in March.
His firm even got another half-million in pandemic relief monies. That’s money that should go to the suffering middle class who have been locked down. He wasn’t locked down from consulting.
A political consulting firm co-owned by @IlhanMN's husband, Tim Mynett, received more than half a million dollars in pandemic bailout cash—even as it was raking in millions from Omar's campaign.https://t.co/La3nLBUzG0
