Rep. Ilhan Omar Stole Millions Of Dollars From Supporters

Republican leadership is looking into this to see what other Dems did the same thing.

Conservative congressmembers filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) and now hope to prohibit enriching relatives through the campaigning process.

“For too long, lawmakers of both political parties have engaged in the ethically dubious practice of pocketing campaign funds by ‘hiring’ their spouses and laundering the money as campaign-related expenses,” Rep. Tom Tiffany (R-WI) said in a statement.

The Washington Times reported on the bill:

[Omar] told supporters after the election that she would cut ties with E Street Group, headed by her husband Tim Mynett, to avoid any “perceived issue,” but the sponsors of the legislation said that the problem is bigger than any single candidate.
The Oversight for Members and Relatives Act would prohibit candidates for federal office from compensating spouses who work on campaigns and require disclosure of any direct or indirect payments made to spouses or immediate family members, including children, parents, siblings and in-laws.
At least two top Democrats could be predisposed to support the measure: A similar measure sponsored by Rep. Adam B. Schiff, California Democrat, was approved by the House in 2007 with the support of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Schiff said in a 2007 press release that candidates “run for federal office to serve the public, not to financially profit from the campaign.”

“There have been too many reports of corruption and abuse in Congress over the last few years, and the passage of this bill with bipartisan support marks an important step forward in restoring the public’s confidence that elected officials are working in the public’s interest and not their own,” Schiff said at the time. “Candidates run for federal office to serve the public, not to financially profit from the campaign.”

Tiffany said the OMAR Act was indeed based on Schiff’s Campaign Expenditure Transparency Act.

“It is outrageous and inappropriate for Members of Congress to convert campaign donations to personal funds in this way,” Tiffany said. “It feeds public perceptions of corruption, undermines public trust in Congress, and must come to an end.”

Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI) called what Omar and others have done “despicable.”

“Loopholes that allow members of Congress to funnel campaign funds to their spouses are despicable and erode trust in our government,” Gallagher said. “There’s simply no logical reason for allowing this practice to continue, and I’m proud to join Rep. Tiffany in this common-sense effort to ensure members can’t profit off running for Congress.”

The Times reported:

A 2013 analysis by USA Today found that 32 members of Congress had doled out more than $2 million to relatives who staffed their campaigns in the 2012 election. One of the biggest recipients was the wife of Rep. Bobby Rush, Illinois Democrat, who received $147,549 in the 2012 cycle, an order of magnitude less than the $2.8 million Mr. Mynett’s company was paid for its work on the Omar campaign, as reported Nov. 10 by Fox News.

Omar defended paying her husband’s company for their work on “media services” during her campaign.

“Every dollar that was spent went to a team of more than 20 that were helping us fight back against attacks and organize on the ground and online in a COVID-19 world. And Tim — beyond his salary at the firm — received no profit whatsoever from the consulting relationship the firm provided,” Omar said in an email obtained by the Associated Press.

People magazine reported on Omar’s former husband and her marriage to Mynett shortly after being divorced:

On Wednesday night, the Democratic lawmaker announced that she had tied the knot just over five months after filing for divorce from her ex-husband Ahmed Hirsi.
A spokesman for Omar confirmed to PEOPLE that Omar, 38, married Tim Mynett. According to NBC News, Mynett is a political consultant with the firm E Street Group, which has previously worked with Omar’s campaign.
She and her ex-husband Hirsi share three children. The congresswoman filed for divorce from Hirsi in early October and the split was finalized in early November, according to the Associated Press.

“They were married Islamically and legally,” a spokesperson for the congresswoman told People.

  1. CONGRESS slips this into the American Constitution allowing Muslims to serve in office. OMAR is very well know for her HATERED for America and the American People. While Obama was in office that’s when AMENDMENT was put in place. BEHIND THE BACKS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
    THIS MONEY IS BEING SENT OVERSEAS TO OUR ENEMIES FOR THEM TO BE ABLE TO ONE DAY ATTACK THE AMERICA. THAT IS ANOTHER REASON THIS LAST ELECTION WAS RIGGED.
    ACCORDING TO THE RIGHTS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WE HAVE A RIGHT TO SUE THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT IF WE CAN PROVE OUR CIVIL RIGHTS HAVE BEEN VIOLATED IN ANY WAY. GUESS WHAT. I HAVE SUCH EVIDENCE.

  2. This Muslin woman has no business being elected into our Congress along with AOC and Pressley.. She is a wicked implant that is there to cause chaos and divide this country and rip off as many as she can. She is a rag head and has no desire to help Americans or America. Send her A__ back to the desert……………She married her brother in order to get him into this country. I wonder how she became a citizen? These kind have plans to disrupt our American way of life. Our forefathers would come out of their graves if they could see what has and is happening to this once great country. We need Donald Trump back in that Oval Office. People that love freedom should always look into the background of who they want to vote for.. There are so many wolves in sheep’s clothing in our government that are just aching to see America become a Socialist nation run by such as was just crookedly elected as president of this once great country. People better start seeking God asking Him to change these leaders hearts and get rid of the revenge and hate that abounds there,

  3. Since WHEN has Dog Pile SCHIFF ever told the Truth? . . . He sounds like Ilhan Omar, and BOTH need to be REMOVED from office – ASAP. One Enlightened Patriot. Team Trump and His Allies 2020 – MAGA (WE’RE NOT going away!).

  4. Both Talibe and Omar should be thrown out of Congress, and I hope AOC runs against Schummer and then they both get WHIPPED by a Republican in the election, and don’t forget Pressley who is the last of the GANG of CORRUPTION. The Dems will loose big time in 2022 with DICTATOR BIDENS EO’s, that is IF THE USA STILL HAS ELECTIONS, because the DEMWITTS will try and FIX THEM AGAIN or just allow DEMOCRATS ONLT to vote!

  5. Nothing will come of this. Republicans are always ferreting out things that are illegal, and that’s it. Nothing happens. Until republicans start acting like a true forceful juggernaut, not one thing will happen. Everyone knows that.

    Call me when republicans grow some guts.

  6. No matter what the libs do they will not be held accountable. Marrying her brother, bigamy, giving her lover millions, so what? I was amazed she got re-elected but with the way the votes were changed I shouldn’t be surprised. Voters now-a-days have no idea who or what they are voting for and I chalk that on the poor education our young are receiving. To make matters this on-line instruction is a farce!

  7. That anti-American, terrorist loving piece of scum should be in prison for all the crimes she has already committed and she just keeps on committing more. I would like to know when that worthless woman beating trash Ellison is going to something about it.

  8. She’s done nothing but illegal crap since being put in office. She hates AMERICA AND AMERICANS…. But NOTHING WILL HAPPEN TO HER EVER. SHAMEFUL BUT LETS IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT AND LET SPITEFUL DEMS CHEAT AND LIE FOREVER

  9. And yet she roams free, has been elected to office. See law for these terrorists don’t mean one dam thing anymore. As far as the Republican’s you ask. Forget about it. Totally useless. You’d get more response from a corpse.

  10. Of course she stole. That’s what Democrats do. First case in point: Look what they did to our President Trump’s election!

  11. There is another Democratic Congressional Woman that has been doing, what this act did say Not to do, and her name is Mrs. Maxine “The Original Loud, Rude And Inciter Of Violence” Waters, she truly needs to be Investigated, and I am very sure that there are many more also!

  12. Rep. Ilhan Omar, is a Communist sympathizer and has no respect for the United States or the People. She has stolen or miss directed money for as long as she has been in Congress. Think about it Three Million directed to her husbands Company during the elections from the COVID RELIEFE funds. think about the number of meals that would have purchased or how many small businesses would have been able to stay open and pay their employees.

    She should be recalled, but I guess the people of Minnesota don’t care.

  13. Very typical indeed these Somalian Refugees and Democrats supporters, who are utilizing the loopholes in the American System of Life and Government to enrich themselves and their close relatives at home and abroad , before they run back to the bush in Somalia and become a Democrats sympathizers who were raiding and cheating in the Presidential Election in 2020 and sending all the Communist Rats to the White House.

  14. I would like to nomanate the a$$ from road island, & the a$$ from Texas for the acadamy award’s for there acting on the impeachment probe. There acting was supper . I was sure I was watching a B movie!

  15. It is disgusting to see how degraded we now appear to the world……we have about the most disgusting elements in our high offices……how could we have gone so cheap and undignified???!!!
