Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar paid her husband’s political consulting firm over $1 million over four months, from late July through October.
Omar’s campaign filings show the freshman congresswoman sent $1.1 million to the E Street Group, her husband Tim Mynett’s company, per a Friday Washington Free Beacon report. The payments reportedly account for roughly 70% of the campaign’s disbursements since July 23. Among the services provided are “cable advertising,” “advertising,” “mail production and postage” and “digital consulting.”
This isn’t the first time Omar has paid E Street Group. In the first three weeks of July alone, Omar’s campaign paid Mynett’s company more than $600,000, Federal Election Committee (FEC) filings show. That payout alone accounted for more than 75% of Omar’s disbursements during that time, the Washington Free Beacon reported.
