Ilham Omar wants to have it both ways and she is just about to learn that that sh*t doesn’t fly in America.
In America, we have a free press and it is the duty of the media to get to the bottom of what our leaders do.
Ilhan Omar is a member of Congress with serious skeletons – rumors she committed immigration fraud by marrying her brother are the sordid ones.
But we do know she admitted to campaign finance violations as a state rep in Minnesota and we know she is named as the other woman in a divorce case.
Now we find out that she paid her lover $21,547 for travel shortly after he broke the news to his wife that he was leaving her which may be another campaign finance violation.
Look, even if this was just about being a homewrecker it would be news because it would comment on her moral makeup, but when rules and laws may have been broken the press needs to dig deep.
Omar today is dodging questions, as you can see in the video below, but she will not be able to keep dodging them forever.
From The Daily Caller:
The timing of the Omar campaign’s travel reimbursements to E. Street Group coinciding with the start of Omar’s alleged affair with Tim Mynett is suspect, according to an FEC complaint filed Wednesday by the conservative National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC).
“If Ilhan for Congress reimbursed Mynett’s LLC for travel so that Rep. Omar would have the benefit of Mynett’s romantic companionship, the expenditures must be considered personal in nature,” NLPC said in its complaint.
The NLPC noted that FEC regulations prohibit the use of campaign funds for personal travel unless the candidate’s personal funds are used to reimburse their campaign.
“Rep. Omar’s filings do not reveal subsequent reimbursements for Mynett’s travel,” the NLPC stated.
Omar and Tim Mynett have been pictured together at multiple events in recent months. Most notably, the pair were pictured sitting together at a fundraiser for CAIR in late March where the congresswoman described the 9/11 terrorist attacks as “some people did something.”
