(NationalSentinel) Anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar is learning that pushing around in Washington, D.C, will get you noticed and get you lots of push-back if you shove the wrong people.
On Wednesday, the Minnesota Democrat and Somali immigrant claimed she never had an affair with a political consultant that her 2018 campaign hired even as a new federal complaint filed this week accused her of funneling money to him.
As The Epoch TimesÂ reports,Â Omar paid E. Street Consulting nearly $223,000 since Aug. 2018, according to filings her campaign made to theÂ Federal Election Commission. In addition, her campaign also paid Tim Mynett $7,000 on July 11, 2018.
Mynett’s estranged wife, Dr. Beth Mynett, claims in divorce papers that her husband left for Omar. Tim Mynett, who is an E. Street partner, has been spotted in public with Omar in several photos that have been published online and in print.
Beth Mynett also said that Omar even came into her and her husband’s home in D.C. at one point to give the couple’s 13-year-old son a present.
â€œThe parties physically separated on or about April 7, 2019, when Defendant told Plaintiff that he was romantically involved with and in love with another woman, Ilhan Omar, who serves as a U.S. representative fromÂ Minnesota,â€ according to the divorce filing.
â€œDefendantâ€™s more recent travel and long work hours now appear to be more related to his affair with Representative Omar than with his actual work commitments.â€
AÂ WCCO reporterÂ asked Omar Tuesday if she was separated from her husband or romantically involved with anybody. â€œNo I am not,â€ she replied, while declining to add any additional context or comments.
Meanwhile, asÂ The Epoch Times noted further:
Omar has allegedly committed marriage fraud and was ordered earlier this yearÂ to repay money her campaign illegally spent. Minnesotaâ€™s campaign finance and public disclosure board found that Omar used nearly $3,500 in campaign funds for personal travel and to help with her tax returns, and revealed that Omar filed joint tax returns in two years with her current husband, Ahmed Hirsi, while she was still married to another man, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi.Â (Related:Â Confirmed: Ilhan Omar did marry her brother to cheat immigration system, analysis finds)
Omar now faces a federal complaint accusing her of illegally funneling money to Tim Mynett.
The complaint filed with the FEC by the National Legal and Policy Center said that the Minnesota Democrat failed to itemize eight disbursements her campaign paid to E. Street for travel costs.
â€œFederal Election Commission regulations require that campaigns that reimburse an individual for travel exceeding $500 must report the individual receiving the reimbursement as the payee, and report the payments aggregating to any one vendor as memo entries,â€ the center noted, adding that Omar did not report Tim Mynett as the payee.
The group adds that federal law prohibits candidates from using campaign funds for personal expenses.
Referencing Beth Mynett’s divorce filing, the complaint added: â€œIt appears that Respondent Mynettâ€™s travel as reported by Ilhan for Congress may have been unrelated, or only partially related, to Omarâ€™s campaign.â€
If the Omar campaign reimbursed Mynett â€œfor travel so that Rep. Omar would have the benefit of Mynettâ€™s romantic companionship, the expenditures must be considered personal in nature,â€ the group added, requesting that the FEC investigate.
