Ilhan Omar is no stranger to scandal and alleged corruption.
During her short tenure as a legislator, she’s been connected to voter fraud allegations, investigated for alleged campaign finance violations and accused of having an affair with a married man (Tim Mynett, who is now her husband).
Speaking of campaign finance and Omar’s husband, the Democratic Minnesota representative’s campaign funneled roughly $1.1 million to E Street Group, a political consultant group co-founded by Mynett, between July 23 and Sept. 30.
That represents almost 70 percent — 69 percent to be exact — of the roughly $1.6 million disbursed by the campaign in that time period, the Washington Free Beacon reported Thursday, citing Federal Election Commission filings.
And it’s in addition to $606,000 disbursed to E Street Group during the first three weeks of July, representing 77 percent of the campaign’s disbursements during that time.
