Media Ignores Omar’s Abuse Of Campaign Funds Spent on Affair with Married Man
A mom in Washington DC claims in her divorce proceeding that her husband, Democratic consultant Tim Mynett, had an affair with MN congresswoman Ilhan Omar. It just so happens that Federal Election Commission reports, show Omar’s campaign gave $223,000 to E. Street Group, LLC, which is Mynett’s company. A new complaint has been filed with the FEC that Omar misused campaign funds for the affair.
According to the divorce papers filed last week, Mynett expressed his love for the congresswoman and then left his wife.
She alleges that her husband’s “more recent travel and long work hours now appear to be more related to his affair with Rep. Omar than with his actual work commitments,” according to the divorce filing.
The National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) has filed an The FEC complaint. It declares that the timing of travel reimbursements to Mynett’s organization coincides with the beginning of the alleged affair.
“If Ilhan for Congress reimbursed Mynett’s LLC for travel so that Rep. Omar would have the benefit of Mynett’s romantic companionship, the expenditures must be considered personal in nature,” NLPC wrote.
As of this writing, not one of the major media outlets have even mentioned the scandal.
From what I can tell, 48 hours after the news broke, here is a list of news outlets that have not written about the Ilhan Omar affair reports:
– New York Times
– Washington Post
– The Daily Beast

The NY Post DID report however on the divorce proceedings and mentioned the financial connection last week: Ilhan Omar stole my husband, DC mom claims in divorce papers!
“The parties physically separated on or about April 7, 2019, when Defendant told Plaintiff that he was romantically involved with and in love with another woman, Ilhan Omar,” court papers read.
According to the Post:
“The parties physically separated on or about April 7, 2019, when Defendant told Plaintiff that he was romantically involved with and in love with another woman, Ilhan Omar,” the court papers say.
“Defendant met Rep. Omar while working for her,’’ the document states. “Although devastated by the betrayal and deceit that preceded his abrupt declaration, Plaintiff told Defendant that she loved him, and was willing to fight for the marriage.
“Defendant, however, told her that was not an option for him’’ and moved out the next day, the papers say.
“It is clear to Plaintiff that her marriage to Defendant is over and that there is no hope of reconciliation,’’ according to the filing.
The Mynetts lived together for six years before marrying in 2012, the filing said.
Omar — a member of “the Squad,” a group of far left-leaning female freshman House members including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and two others — recently separated from her husband, according to reports.
Omar has been the subject now of a number of scandalous issues, including allegations that she may have committed marriage fraud, according to the Minnesota Star-Tribune, her hometown paper.
Allegations also suggest that she married a male relative, possibly her brother. Omar and her current husband, Ahmed Hirsi, filed joint tax returns while Omar was married to another man, Ahmed Elmi.
Omar and her family have made it difficult for journalists to find out the truth about her marriage, Minnesota Star-Tribune editor Kevin Diaz told PolitiFact.
“Our public records searches determined that in at least one period after she married Elmi, all three (Omar, Elmi and Hirsi) used the same address in Minnesota. It raises questions about the nature of the relationship if she is living with both the person she’s married to and her eventual husband,”
“What’s really made it hard is that she’s been unwilling to address any of these questions. That has fueled the controversy. We quoted her at length to say that these were mere accusations, that they were unfair, and that she shouldn’t have to address them. Be that as may, there was an undisputed instance of her filing her taxes improperly. And if you’re in Congress, you should explain that to your constituents,”
What a mess!
