A firm that is co-owned by Rep. Ilhan Omar’s husband received some major cash — hundreds of thousands of dollars — in COVID-19 bailout money, all while the lawmaker’s campaign paid the company millions of dollars.
“Public records show that E Street Group, co-owned by Omar’s husband, Tim Mynett, received nearly $135,000 in Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans and $500,000 in Economic Injury Disaster loans,” Fox News stated in a brand new report. “Campaign finance filings also show that the firm raked in millions during the 2020 campaign from Omar.”
Omar revealed in March that she had married Mynett after she had denied allegations that she was having an affair with him while both she and Mynett were married to other people.
Omar “has paid nearly $2.8 million to her husband’s political consulting firm so far in the 2019-2020 election cycle, including nearly 70% of her third-quarter disbursements,” Fox News reported separately. “Federal Election Commission data shows that Omar’s campaign sent $1.6 million to E Street Group LLC, which is owned by her husband Tim Mynett, from the start of 2019 through Jul. 22, 2020. After that, she reported an additional $1.1 million in the third quarter and $27,000 in the following weeks. That $1.1 million constituted nearly 70% of the $1.6 million that Omar’s campaign spent that quarter.”Trending:
In mid-November, Omar cut ties with her husband’s firm after she won re-election in Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District, saying she wanted to “make sure that anybody who is supporting our campaign with their time or financial support feels there is no perceived issue with that support,” the Star Tribune reported.
“Every dollar that was spent went to a team of more than twenty that were helping us fight back against attacks and organize on the ground and online in a COVID-19 world,” she went on to say. “And Tim — beyond his salary at the firm — received no profit whatsoever from the consulting relationship the firm provided.”
Folks, this is insanity.
If this doesn’t help you see just how greedy and starved for power those on the far-left truly are, I don’t know what will. At the end of the day, the reason they want a socialist country isn’t to help the “little people” and the folks they claim are “oppressed.”
It’s about securing positions of power for themselves where they can grow rich through heavy taxation of normal, working class people. There is no “redistributing wealth” to the have-nots. They plan on taking your money for themselves.
Don’t be fooled, ladies and gentlemen.
