Okay, so, you bring over Somalians to America and then for some inexplicable reason you allow them to take part in your political system.
Then you’re surprised when they engage in unethical practices?
Truly, you were surprised by that?
Rep. Ilhan Omar has continued quietly funneling hundreds of thousands of dollars to her new husband’s consulting film, including a $189,000 windfall in March — just weeks after they announced they had tied the knot, campaign data shows.
The payments between the Minneapolis Democratic congresswoman and Tim Mynett prompted at least one ethics complaint in 2019 after The Post first revealed allegations — made by Mynett’s then-wife in her divorce filing — that Omar was having an affair with the member of her political consulting team, who was at the time married to another woman. Omar was married to her second husband at the time.
But that doesn’t appear to have stopped the now-married couple, with Mynett’s E Street Group collecting $292,814.99 from his wife’s campaign this year for digital advertising, fundraising consulting and research services, according to the Federal Election Commission filings.
In total, Mynett has received a whopping $878,930.65 from Omar’s campaign since he began working for her in 2018, raising eyebrows among watchdogs and political law experts who say the practice is rife with cronyism.
The majority of those payments were made after the Somali-born lawmaker’s victory in the solidly Democratic seat at the November 2018 midterm elections.
Omar is by far the E Street Group’s biggest client, according to Open Secrets data, with nearly one in every three of Omar’s campaign dollars going to her alleged lover’s firm as of last August, according to the Washington Examiner.
The FEC allows lawmakers to hire family members or spouses to work on their campaigns, making the arrangement technically aboveboard, but multiple political experts told The Post Tuesday they believe the practice should be outlawed.
“It should not be allowed,” said attorney Richard W. Painter, who served as chief ethics lawyer in the George W. Bush White House.
“I think it’s a horrible idea to allow it, given the amount of money that goes into these campaigns from special interests,” he continued.
Now a professor at the University of Minnesota’s Law School in Omar’s hometown, Painter said star candidates in safe seats who raked in millions of dollars in campaign donations had the ability to enrich themselves and their families.
“We already have enough problems with gifts to campaigns as a quid pro quo for political action,” he said.
Of course, non-Somalians do this same sort of thing, they just aren’t as 80-IQ about the way they go about it.
Furthermore, because Ilhan has made all of these statements about how American politics are controlled by Jews, and hasn’t backed down from it in the way that AOC has backed down from it, she’s going to be run out of office, and that is really the reason that this stupid level of corruption is a big deal to the media.
So, it’s a real double whammy.
We should be reporting on all political corruption, which would result in all of these people ending up in prison. Just even the way multi-millionaire politicians exploited the PPP loan system while the average small business was going under should be enough to just go ahead and round them up and lock them up and throw away the key.
But no. The media runs cover for them and allows for this system of corruption to continue onward, while people like Omar, who questioned the Jews, get picked off for doing the same sort of thing they’re all doing.
