If all of the allegations against her are accurate, then Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) is the most blatantly, openly corrupt first-term congresswoman ever to be elected to office.
A few short weeks ago, Project Veritas published bombshell revelations from an undercover video sting operation that Omar’s campaign – or people associated with it – essentially pay for votes in her Minneapolis district. In addition, the undercover report claims that vote canvassers collect mail-in ballots and fill them out for preferred (Democratic) candidates, including Omar.
There have also been implications of possible corruption involving a political firm run by her husband – namely, that she is making herself a millionaire using campaign contributions.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) funneled an additional $1.1 million to her husband’s company, bringing her total payments to the firm to $2.7 million for the election cycle, new filings show.
Omar’s campaign filings, released Thursday, show that she sent $1.1 million more to the E Street Group, a political consulting firm owned by her husband, Tim Mynett. The payments account for nearly 70 percent of the $1.6 million Omar’s campaign has disbursed between July 23 and the end of September. They have helped cover advertisements, consulting, travel expenses, and production costs.
Omar has faced criticism on a number of issues since she entered Congress in 2018. Among other things, her lack of transparency about her past marriages has come under fire, and the Minnesota Campaign Finance Board has ordered her to repay thousands for a campaign finance violation.
Now, there may not be anything ‘illegal’ about funneling millions to a political consultancy group owned by your husband. But clearly, there are ethical questions surrounding such activity. Literally, through her marriage to her political consultant husband, Omar is making herself wealthy and she’s doing it with campaign contributions that were never meant to enrich her personally.
But like the other reports about her financial and personal infidelities, it won’t matter to the garbage mainstream media because this ‘woman of color’ is a darling to the Washington establishment press already and a rising hard-left socialist-Marxist star in a party that has lost all semblance of being ‘for the people,’ if it ever really was.
And of course, in deep blue Minneapolis, despite the fact that the militant left of Black Lives Matter and Antifa nearly burned half the city to the ground earlier this year, no matter what Omar does in terms of her shady self-enrichment schemes, she knows she’s going to be reelected for as long as she wants to be in Congress.
What’s particularly galling is that we have to listen to this massive hypocrite lecture the rest of us about ‘wealth inequality’ and ‘power to the people’ when she’s lining her and her husband’s pockets using donations from idiots who give her campaign contributions. They are literally enabling her hypocrisy.
But we’re not surprised. We’ve noticed long ago that American leftist leaders like Omar are no different from those who have been looting and ruining banana republics for decades: They never live by the same low standards their policies impose on their lowly ‘ordinary’ citizens.
