(PatriotHeadline.com)- Reports suggest that after funnelling millions of dollars to her husband’s company, far-left Congresswoman Ilhan Omar of Minnesota has cut ties to the consulting firm.
On Sunday, Omar sent an email to supporters to explain why she was ending the working relationship with the consulting firm E Street Group run by her husband Tim Mynett. Omar explained that she was ending the relationship to ensure that people don’t think she was doing something wrong, even though she had already paid millions to the company and ensured her husband made a good income from her campaign efforts.
“So we’ve decided to terminate our contract with Tim and Will’s firm,” she said in the email. “While many of our close supporters know these two well and have recommended we keep them on – I want to make sure that anybody who is supporting our campaign with their time or financial support feels there is no perceived issue with that support.”
How honorable of her to end the relationship only after her husband cashed in!
“Because of Will and Tim’s decades of combined knowledge and experience in the (5th District), and the work they had done to prepare us for re-election – where our primary and general opponents spent a record-setting $14 million against us – we couldn’t part ways with this team after we got married,” she added.
Mynett and Omar married in March 2020 after the press reported that they were caught having an affair by Omar’s previous husband.
Records show that Omar paid her husband’s firm almost $3 million for “advertisements, consulting, travel expenses, and production costs” throughout her campaigns. Her husband’s company was also the biggest single vendor for the entire campaign. Neither Omar nor Mynett has publicly apologized for making the transaction, using campaign money in a way that will pay for Omar’s lifestyle.
When Omar was asked about it by the New York Times this year, Omar said she would be “stupid” not to employ her husband. “No, actually that would be the stupid thing to do,” she said in response to a question about whether it would be wiser to hire somebody else.
“You don’t stop using the service of people who are doing good work because somebody thinks it means something else,” she said.
In politics, that’s probably exactly what you should do…especially when your husband’s company is making millions of dollars from a campaign that should not be profitable.
