The National Legal and Policy Center has the lawsuit ready to roll and they’re only waiting for the courthouse to open up Wednesday morning. Ilhan Omar is facing fresh new campaign finance fraud allegations.
It turns out she has been having an adulterous romantic affair with a married man. Worse, it appears that her campaign was paying his travel expenses just so they could be together. Back in her home country of Somalia, under sharia law, people who commit adultery get stoned to death.
There already were ongoing investigations into the rumors that she married her own brother, so he could break immigration laws. If true, it will call her own immigration status into question. The lies and deceit, that are crashing around her ears now, could turn into very real rocks and stones if she’s deported.
According to a copy of the complaint they posted online, Omar’s lover, Tim Mynett, left his wife, Dr. Beth Jordan Mynett, for Omar and Dr. Mynett filed for divorce. As part of her documents she alleges that his “extensive travel” with Omar is likely unrelated to his work.”
Tim Mynett was paid like a gigolo she says. “Defendant’s more recent travel and long work hours now appear to be more related to his affair with Rep. Omar than with his actual work commitments.”
That’s a very big deal according to Attorney Tom Anderson. “We believe Representative Ilhan Omar may have touched the third rail of campaign finance law: disbursing campaign funds for personal use.” He went on to tell Daily Caller, “It’s a brazen act Representative Omar was caught doing before in Minnesota and all of the evidence we’ve seen tells us she’s probably doing it again.”
Anderson prepared a civil suit asking for a formal federal investigation into the matter.
As stated in the complaint, the Federal Election Commission laws say that anything over $500 for an individual’s travel has to name the person. If the candidate names a firm, then anything over $200 has to be itemized as an expense, naming the person it was used for. “Each memo entry must include the name and address of the vendor, as well as the date, amount and purpose of the payment.” Omar didn’t do that.
“Ilhan for Congress did not report Tim Mynett as the payee, but reported as the payee his consulting firm, E Street Group, LLC.” They didn’t do the breakdown, either. “Nor did Ilhan for Congress report the vendors who received payments aggregating over $200 for Respondent Mynett’s travel.”
Mynett started his business relationship with Omar in July of 2018 but
the travel expenses didn’t start occurring until April of this year. Coincidentally, that is “the same month that Dr. Mynett alleges in her filing that her husband told her of the affair, and made a ‘shocking declaration of love’ for Rep. Omar.”
“It appears that Respondent Mynett’s travel as reported by Ilhan for Congress may have been unrelated, or only partially related, to Omar’s campaign. 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.” That is a big no-no.
“Respondents knowingly and willfully violated the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971.” Things are going to really get hot for Omar now. “Complainant… is asking the Commission to conduct an investigation, including an audit of named respondent committee.”
If Omar does end up getting deported, this is what she has to look forward to. According to PJ Media, “Sheikh Mohamed Abu Abdalla, al-Shabaab’s governor for Somalia’s Jubba regions in the south, said Habiba Ali Isak, a 30-year-old mother of eight children, was killed by stoning in Sakow on Thursday afternoon” for cheating on her husband.
