FEC: Ilhan Omar’s Campaign Paid Half of Last Quarter of 2019 Budget to Alleged Boyfriend

Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings released Friday show that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) paid over half of her campaign’s spendings in the last quarter of 2019 to a firm that belongs to Democratic consultant Tim Mynett, whose wife accused him in a divorce filing in August of having an affair with the congresswoman.

According to the FEC, between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31, Omar’s campaign paid a total of $217,000 to the E Street Group LLC for research services, digital advertising, fundraising consulting, travel, and other expenses.

As we reported back in August 2019, Rep. Ilhan Omar’s campaign had already paid Tim Mynett’s E. Street group around $230,000 for fundraising consulting, digital communications, Internet advertising and travel expenses since 2018 until Aug 2019, FEC records showed.
