The 37-year-old anti-Semitic congresswoman’s campaign has funneled $146,712.63 to Mynett’s E Street Group since The New York Post reported allegations in August that she was having an affair with her paid consultant.
The latest payments to Mynett’s group were for digital advertising, fundraising consulting and video production. He did not charge her for his other service to her.
When news of the alleged adulterous shenanigans broke, Omar had already paid $223,000 through her campaign since 2018 for fundraising consulting, internet advertising, digital communications, and travel expenses to the E Street Group. The latest grand total is now $370,000.
However, the federal agency slated to probe the campaign finance complaint [against the woman who said of the 911 attacks in 2001 that "some people did something"] is unable to act due to lack of commissioners on the bench to investigate the matter. So Omar did something and apparently will get away with it.
Both Omar and her "alleged" lover Mynett have denied the allegations in Beth Mynett’s divorce papers that states the consultant dumped his wife in April because he was having an affair with the Somali-born [Jew-hater] woman.
In October, Omar filed for divorce from her husband, [who in this case is not her biological brother who she previously divorced] Ahmed Hirsi amid the affair allegations — claiming the marriage was “irretrievable.” The split was finalized on Nov. 5 of this year.
Conservative watchdog the National Legal and Policy Center filed a complaint against Omar with the Federal Election Commission in the wake of the bombshell report — seeking a probe into whether the Democrat used campaign funds to rendezvous [for coitus] with her "alleged" lover.
The Federal Elections Commission requires at least four members to vote on complaints but currently have only three of six commissioner slots filled. Thus they are impotent to do anything about the complaint.
The FEC complaint focused on the fact that more than $12,673.43 of the payments to Mynett were simply labelled “travel expenses” — a potential breach of campaign finance law which states that travel expenses be itemized.
“Our question is whether this was necessary travel or whether she was just bringing her boyfriend along for the company,” NLPC Chairman Peter Flaherty said in August.
FEC spokesman Christian Hilland on Friday said the agency was still open for business but needed the US Senate to confirm a fourth member until it begins investigating campaign finance violations again.
“We are willing to accept reports but we are not able to move forward with any investigatory matters,” he said.
Meanwhile, Omar is free to be obnoxious and anti-Semitic.
