Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar could be in hot water after federal election watchdogs have begun an investigation into her potential abuse of campaign finances.
The investigation centers around whether or not Rep. Omar took her lover on vacations paid for by her campaign, The Daily Mail reported.
“Peter Flaherty, chairman of the conservative National Legal and Policy Center last month filed an amended version of a complaint he had lodged earlier into Omar’s campaign spending, following DailyMail.com’s revelation she was having an affair with her finance chief Tim Mynett, The Mail said.
“Omar’s divorce from husband Ahmed Hirsi became final this week. Mynett’s wife Beth has also filed for divorce in the wake of the affair,” it said.
“Flaherty is asking the Federal Election Commission to investigate payments made by the Minnesota congresswoman’s campaign, Ilhan for Congress to Mynett’s company, The E Street Group.
“Ilhan’s campaign paid Mynett’s company more than $369,000 since hiring him in August of 2018 and payments run up until this past September. Nearly $25,000 is labeled as travel expenses, according to records filed to the FEC,” it said.
But surprisingly it is Sen. Mitch McConnell who could protect Rep. Omar inadvertently as he has not scheduled hearings to confirm new members of the agency who enforce campaign finance laws.
“If Ilhan for Congress reimbursed Mynett’s LLC for travel so that Rep. Omar would have the benefit of Mynett’s romantic companionship, the expenditure must be considered personal in nature,” Flaherty said.
“Federal Election Commission regulations prohibit the use of campaign funds for personal expenses collateral to travel…unless personal funds are used to reimburse the committee,” he said.
