Ilhan Omar Used Campaign Cash to Keep Husband’s Consultancy Firm Afloat


Ilhan Omar’s 2020 congressional campaign is responsible for funding nearly 80 percent of her husband’s consulting firm.

Federal Election Commission (FEC) records reveal a sum of $2,918,470.74 being funneled to E Street Group, a D.C.-based consulting firm owned by Omar’s husband Tim Mynett.

The sizable sum accounts for over 78% of E Street Group’s total payments between January 2019 and November 2020. Over the course of the 2020 election cycle, the firm was paid $3,742,911.57.

And over 52 percent of Omar’s total campaign spend – roughly $5,600,000 in donations – went to E Street Group.

“Omar pledged to sever ties with the firm following her reelection, but before doing so, her campaign paid E Street Group $138,000, filings show.” Fox News added.
