Ilhan Omar’s campaign funneled $3 million to husband’s firm during the 2020 campaign

February 7, 2021

The 2018 election cycle turned out to be a fairly lucrative venture for Ilhan Omar and her husband. Omar’s campaign funneled roughly $3 million to a firm with ties to her brother in 2018, you can read that story here.

Having never been called to the carpet for these apparent campaign finance violations Ilhan Omar apparently decided it was okay to do it this time around as well. Here is more:

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.

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.

Ilhan Omar defended this by saying of course she would use the same firm that helped her so much the last time, it did such a great job. Yeah, I have to admit it did work out well for them last time so why not make another cool $3 mil? My question is, if this is such a great consulting firm why is it that her campaign is basically the only one using it? Without Ilhan Omar’s contributions it likely would have gone under…

        No, they are too far removed from reality as we can see with wasting all this time and money on impeachment when Americans are hurting in lockdowns, with businesses closed, ccp/covid, etc., etc.

        Their priorities are all screwed up and what is scary is the Democratic voters wanted this!

    If a politician commits a crime in the woods and nobody reports it, did it really happen?
