Rep. Ilhan Omar, when she isn’t advocating the destruction of Israel or bashing the police, or messing around doing some voter fraud, puts a lot of time into bilking campaign donors to enrich herself. In fact, according to a new report, it’s more than we previously even thought.
It’s ironic, considering that one more use of her time is undermining America and capitalism because she’s allegedly opposed to “greed.”
The Free Beacon has the latest:
Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D., Minn.) campaign payments to her husband’s firm accounted for nearly 80 percent of its cash haul during the 2020 elections, federal filings show.
The E Street Group, a D.C. consulting firm owned by Tim Mynett, Omar’s husband, and his partner Will Hailer, received $3.7 million from political committees this past cycle. Omar’s campaign was by far its biggest moneymaker, doling out 146 checks for $2.9 million, or 78 percent of the firm’s payments. Its second biggest cash source was Omar mentor Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D., Wash.), whose campaign provided $194,000. The two combined for 85 percent of the firm’s payments.
EIGHTY-FIVE PERCENT Y’ALL!!!!
Omar’s payments to E Street constituted a large part of her campaign expenditures. Her committee spent $5.2 million, meaning that the $2.9 million that she funneled to her husband’s firm was 56 percent of the campaign’s operational costs.
Over HALF of her campaign expenditures were to HER HUSBAND.
And Fox News adds…
Omar pledged to sever ties with the firm following her reelection, but before doing so, her campaign paid E Street Group $138,000, filings show. The firm has also received nearly $200,000 from Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash.
Even after her PUBLIC SHOW of “cutting ties” she still threw another 100 grand plus over to her husband (herself.)
AND THERE’S STILL MORE. From the Free Beacon again:
Despite raking in millions from Omar’s campaign, Mynett’s firm also received more than a half a million dollars in bailout cash last year intended to help small businesses cope with the economic downturn caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
HE GOT BAILOUT MONEY!!!!!!!!!
That’s pure graft. Graft from the overt grift she’s running.
Anyone wagering on CNN getting fired up over this? Surely Fake Tapper and FDABG Stelter will be outraged! …. AT FOX NEWS for reporting it.
