Ilhan Omar’s Campaign Has Paid Over $200,000 to Her Alleged Lover for ‘Fundraising Consulting’

Ilhan OmarRepresentative Ilhan Omar’s (D., Minn.) campaigns have, since 2018, disbursed roughly $230,000 to a consulting firm owned by Tim Mynett, a fundraising strategist whose wife accused him of having an affair with Omar in a recent divorce filing obtained by the New York Post.

Omar’s 2018 campaign spent $62,674 on “fundraising consulting” services provided by the E Street Group and the spending has only increased since. The freshman Democrat’s 2020 reelection campaign has, according to FEC data, spent $160,000 on Mynett’s services thus far in 2019, nearly one-third of its total expenditures, despite it being an off year.

Mynett, who has a partnership stake in E Street, told his wife that he had fallen in love with Omar over the months they had been working together and rejected her attempts to salvage their marriage.

“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,” reads the divorce filing, submitted in D.C. court on Tuesday.

Less than one week after Mynett disclosed the affair, Omar’s reelection campaign began paying for Mynett’s travel. Mynett’s wife believes the travel, which has cost the campaign more than 20,000 since April, was not work-related.

“Defendant’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,” the divorce filing reads.

The conservative National Legal and Policy Center filed an FEC complaint Wednesday morning alleging that Omar violated the law by funding her romantic partner’s travel.

“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 said in its complaint, which was obtained by the Daily Caller.

It’s not the first time Omar has faced FEC violations; she was hit with a $500 fine in June for improperly using campaign funds to travel to a conference in Florida.

Omar has also previously faced questions about her marital history. In 2012, a series of social media posts identified her then-husband, Ahmed Elmi, as her child’s uncle, prompting speculation that she married her brother to skirt U.S. immigration law. She has refused to address the controversy, which gained traction earlier this year after evidence emerged that she likely lied to Minnesota authorities about her knowledge of Elmi’s whereabouts in order to obtain a no-fault divorce. Omar is now married to another man, Ahmed Hirsi.

Why are “We the people ” so tolerant of her making a fool of our country and its laws. She needs to be removed, yet I doubt that anyone would stand up to her and be branded as racist.

I’m baffled as to why this Country hasn’t prosecuted this anti Semitic spy. If President Trump or any republican we’re in the spotlight for this they would be in Prison.
Is my Country now a huge lie? Where’s our values?


Her eyes are cold. They remind me of the cold look of a reptile.

Brenda Blunt

She needs to step down! If she was in the Middle East, she probably be stoned!! She is a very disgrace to her State and to the USA!!

Linda Hutson

Arrested 23 times, filed fraudulent tax returns, married her own brother to scam immigration, home wrecker, committed numerous campaign violations, Terrorist Sympathizer, Anti- Israel, Anti-American! 😡Many Congressmen have been kicked out or forced to resign for something as unethical as a missed spoken joke, yet Omar is Pelosi’s new BFF! Who thought it would be a good ideal to give her a choice Committee Appointment? Why has the “Squad “ been given preimence over othe freshman Congressmen?


Well “Huston we have a problem”. The problem is that she is Muslim and it’s not politically correct to question her beyond what she chooses to reveal. Many questions about her arrival in this country, her marital status, and campaign funds disbursements etc….. have been asked, and she avoids and refuses to answer. End of story, because it’s considered bad political form to push her any farther than she chooses to go. In her country of origin she would have been jailed or worse for not coming up with all the right answers very quickly. But not here, she can get away with just about anything by yelling racist,discrimination, and then it’s up to the media to prove otherwise, but nobody in her camp is talking. So, she’s pretty much left alone. And Nancy Pelosi is holding on to her seat for dear life and isn’t likely to cross anybody,… Read more »


Fire DEPORT this vile woman and her entire family they are all here illegally and must be removed banned from ever coming to America again,

Buddy Saunders

Very, very interesting. Feathering the love nest with campaign contributions–likely not what her supports had in mind for their money.

Josephine pooley

Corruption! Sickening!


Omar, Omar, Omar….. When will you stop using “The Big Lie?” Just because you are a congressman (congressperson) you can’t go around flaunting the laws of the country you are supposed to represent. Your phony smile and head covering do not endear you to the majority of Americans. To see you arrogantly walking the halls of Congress, complete with tour Starbucks coffee cup makes me violently ill. I hope you are having fun now because your constituents will throw you out of office the next election cycle.

Phil Hammersley

What? Is Mynett both blind and deaf? Who’d want to be with this shrill anti-Semite?


If the law can’t do there job and lock her up then we the people of the great nation need to VOTE HER OUT!


OOOOH. that’s not kosher.


Why oh why is she still in office? I cannot believe that there has been no action to remove her!


We have enough lying cheating politicians. its time to remove all of the lyers who would try to tell us how to live and who perhaps should learn how to live a clean godly life using their own money not ours.


I just pray that people now see her for what she truly is. IMO if she hates Israel so much then she most likely hates the USA as well! GET HER OUT OF CONGRESS! TRUMP 2020

James DeBoard

I am just dumbfounded that the good people of Minnesota would even consider reelecting this women. She is a detriment to this country and the State of Minnesota.

Shelley Teal

I agree with Diana, Mimi, and Linda, as well as the rest of this vocal group. Way to go! Sop where does this nonsense stop! I hope at the next election that she and the Squad are all voted out. They are a disgrace to our country and if there was a way to oust Nancy Pelosi and that crew…I only wish.


Why are we not hearing about unrest and Police arrest taking place in Minnesota,have all the people living there scared to rise up or believe nothing is wrong in their state


Is she not Muslim? Is this not an alleged accusation of being a whore? In Muslim law (Sharia) aren’t whores beheaded? Where is the executioner?
