Back in August, we learned that Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s husband, Tim Mynett has been having an extremely lucrative year thus far. His E-Street Group has been seeing relatively amazing amounts of revenue coming in, almost entirely thanks to the work he’s allegedly doing for his wife’s campaign. Omar dumped $600,000 into his coffers in the second quarter alone.

Well, the gravy train has kept on rolling for Omar and her spouse, picking up the pace considerably. The third-quarter figures have come in and according to the Free Beacon, Mynett’s company raked in an additional $1.1 million from his wife’s campaign between July and September. Man… that must be some really amazing work that the E-Street Group is doing for Omar, eh?

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…

With the $1.1. million in new payments, the firm has now received a total of $2.7 million from Omar’s campaign for the 2020 elections.

This is nothing short of amazing. And I will once again remind anyone who hasn’t looked at the polling that all of this money is being flushed into a campaign consultant’s firm for the campaign of someone who was never in any danger of losing either the primary or the general election. To put that in perspective, let’s compare Omar’s situation to that of another Democrat in a very safe seat. Carolyn Maloney represents New York’s 12th Congressional District in New York City and she has plenty of seniority at this point. The Republicans rarely even bother running anyone against her, but she did face a rather stiff primary challenge from the left this year.

Ilan Omar paid her husband’s firm more money in the past six months than all of the money that Maloney raised in 2019 and 2020 combined. Just let that sink in for a minute.

As I mentioned in August, we still have no way of knowing precisely how much of that cash Omar’s husband brought home to their joint coffers from his salary and “bonuses” he may have received for making his company such a success. But you can rest assured that it was quite a bit. The couple no doubt files their taxes separately, so we’re not likely to find out any time soon, but it’s a safe bet that they’re now living pretty comfortably.

This isn’t the only dubious financial activity that’s been reported about Omar since she joined “the squad” upon arriving in Washington. She’s already been under investigation for the advance she received on her book deal to pen her recent memoir because she failed to disclose the income as required. On top of that, the Minnesota Campaign Finance Board already ordered her to pay back thousands of dollars over campaign finance violations.

Ilhan Omar is hardly the first person in the swamp to feather their nest or that of a relative using either campaign cash or offers of lucrative government jobs. But she certainly appears to be among those who were quickest to jump into the cash-grabbing race. It seems as if, as soon as she was initially elected, she began figuring out ways to make her congressional gig a bit more lucrative than the simple base salary she receives as a member of Congress. And when it comes to the payments to her husband’s firm, it’s all apparently legal under our weak campaign finance laws.
