Rep. Omar’s campaign reportedly funded 80 percent of her husband’s consulting firm
Rep. Ilhan Omar’s election campaign helped keep her husband’s political consulting firm afloat last year, providing nearly 80 percent of the company’s income, according to a report. The Minnesota Democratic congresswoman’s campaign committee gave the E Street Group — which is co-owned by her husband, Tim Mynett — more than $2.9 million over the course of the 2020 election cycle, the Washington Free Beacon said, citing federal campaign finance data. Mynett and his partner, entrepreneur Will Hailer, received 146 checks from Omar’s camp over the course of the cycle, the Beacon said. The final payment was in early November. An additional $194,000 in payments to E Street Group came from Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), an Omar mentor, the paper noted.
