Ilhan Omar on track to funnel nearly $1.16 million from campaign to her new husband’s company

 Ilhan Omar on track to funnel nearly $1.16 million from campaign to her new husband’s company

The Daily Mail reported that Ilhan Omar is on track to pay her new husband Tim Mynett’s company nearly double the half million dollars she funneled his way last year 

FEC records show that Omar paid $290,000 to the E Street Group, a fundraising and consulting group run by Oma’s husband Tim Mynett. If she continues at this rate it will mean the company would get a whopping $1.16 million from Omar’s campaign in 2020.

‘Omar’s campaign chest is looking more and more like a dowry,’ said Peter Flaherty, the head of a group that filed a complaint with the FEC. The firm received a total of $523,000 for the whole of last year. He added: ‘Basically, her campaign finance disclosures read more like a wedding registry where friends can make gifts to the happy couple’ 

The figures, released late Wednesday by the FEC show that Omar’s campaign committee paid E Street a total of $291,059.91 between January 1 and March 31. That includes regular payments of $67,000, broken down as $50k for ‘digital advertising,’ $12k for ‘fundraising consulting’ and $5k for ‘digital consulting’.

Omar only started paying the $50,000 figure on a monthly basis in December, soon after both she and Mynett got divorced. Then on March 30, two weeks into the marriage, there were two separate payments totaling $63,834.18 for ‘mail, advertising, production and postage’.

THIS YEAR: In the first three months of this year Omar paid more than $290,000 to the E Street Group, a fundraising and consulting group run by Tim Mynett, who she married last month. If she continues at this rate it will mean the company would get a whopping $1.16 million from Omar’s campaign in 2020. Pictured: Some of the payments Omar made to Mynett’s company this year.

LAST YEAR: Ilhan’s campaign paid Mynett’s company a total $523,000 for the whole of last year.
