Watch: Congresswoman And ‘Squad’ Member Extramarital Affair Is Turning Into A Campaign Finance Investigation
Squad member and freshman Congresswoman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) according to reports has been living “on and off” at a “secret” Washington D.C apartment with her rumored boyfriend who is also a Democrat consultant.
The Daily Mails reported on Monday that Omar and Tim Mynett have been getting together when Omar is in DC. The Daily Mail published several photos of the two walking into and leaving a DC apartment separately but around the same time.
Mynett’s wife recently filed for divorce, court documents filed in the divorce papers state Mynett told his wife that he loves Omar and spent several nights with her in September. Mr. Mynett who is a Democrat political strategists is a father of three children.
The Daily Mail also published a picture of Omar entering the passenger side of a blue mustang that is Mynett’s.
Mynett has been seen coming and going from her cozy basement apartment a few minutes from Capitol Hill with clothes, groceries and six-packs of Stella Artois beer.
He’s also been whisking mom-of-three Omar around DC in his bright blue Ford Mustang, despite her insistence she needs a constant security detail because of threats to her life.
The pair are careful not to be seen entering and leaving the rented digs at the same time but they spent at least six nights together in September, including Thursday, September 20 into Friday, September 21.
Omar and Mynett have denied the extramarital affair.
What makes things most interesting is that since 2018 Omar has paid Mynett almost $230,000 in campaign funds and consulting fees.
Now, the National Legal and Policy Center has filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission claiming that the congresswoman has used campaign funds illegally to carry on an affair with Mynett. FEC guidelines strongly forbid lawmakers to use campaign money for personal travel expenses, unless they pay it back out of their own pocket.
“If Ilhan for Congress reimbursed Mynett’s LLC for travel so that Rep. Omar would have the benefit of Mynett’s romantic companionship, the expenditures must be considered personal in nature,” NLPC’s complaint reads.
“Rep. Omar’s filings do not reveal subsequent reimbursements for Mynett’s travel,” the complaint added.
