Are there enough prosecutors left to investigate the shady dealings of just the so-called”Squad?”
Hot on the heels of a federal criminal investigation of Rep. Rashida Tlaib for dipping into her campaign funds to finance her lifestyle, now Rep. Ilhan Omar faces similar charges.
The New York Post reports than Rep. Omar funneled $150,000 to her alleged married lover’s political consultant business.
Rep. Ilhan Omar paid another $150,000 to Tim Mynett’s political consulting group in the three months after The Post first revealed allegations the pair were romantically involved, records show.
The 37-year-old Minnesota congresswoman’s campaign has funneled $146,712.63 to Mynett’s E Street Group since The Post in August reported allegations she was having an affair with her paid consultant, records show.
The latest payments to Mynett’s group were for digital advertising, fundraising consulting and video production.
Mynett’s estranged wife Beth claims Mynett left her in April because of the affair with Rep. Omar. Omar and Mynett deny the affair.
Omar herself filed for divorce from her husband Ahmed Hirsi in October.
A complain against Omar was filed with the FEC by the National Legal and Policy Center.
The FEC complaint focused on the fact that more than $12,673.43 of the payments to Mynett were simply labeled “travel expenses” — a potential breach of campaign finance law, which mandates that travel expenses be itemized.
However, the FEC as currently constituted does not have a quorum necessary to take any action so the charges will just sit.
Of course, this is just another in a long line of questionable activity by the Somali-American Congresswoman.
There are also charges of allegedly committing perjury, immigration fraud, marriage fraud, state and federal tax fraud, and federal student loan fraud – and potentially marrying her own brother.
These are the people who constantly lecture Americans about how they should behave and demand that you and I follow all their laws to the letter. But when it’s easy for them, the rules don’t apply.
