There is nobody in Congress as unpopular as Ilhan Omar.
Her approval rating is as low as 9% according to polling.
And she just got caught in a scandal so embarrassing she might resign.
One would think that the series of anti-Semitic attacks and conspiracy theories Ilhan Omar has spread would be enough to force her out of Congress.
Or the fact that she was banned from Israel for her support for anti-Israel legislation meant to bankrupt the Jewish state.
But that didn’t force her to step down.
She didn’t even step down when allegations dropped that she married her brother to commit immigration fraud, a claim that she has never denied.
But for the first time, her scandals are raising major concerns about her use of campaign funds that could cause a lot of problems for her with the Federal Election Commission and the House Ethics office.
Since getting into office, rumors started spreading that Omar was engaging in an affair with her married political consultant.
Tim Mynett, whose consulting firm E. Street Group has been doing work for Omar, has been secretly dating Omar, who is also married.
Mynett admitted the affair to his wife on April 7th of this year, and is reportedly getting divorced.
And Omar is also divorcing her husband, who she has already divorced previously before marrying the man believed to be her brother.
The scandal initially moved from being immoral, to potentially illegal when her FEC report revealed that she sent $229,000 to Mynett’s group from August 2018 through June 2019.
Much of that was for travel expenses, which could turn out to be personal expenses considering their affair.
Not only that, but even if they were campaign-related, it opens up a lot of ethical questions considering that she would be paying the man she is engaging in an affair with to travel to her using campaign funds.
The National Legal and Policy Center has filed a complaint with the FEC to learn more about these expenses.
But now there are more expenses to look at.
Between the months of July and September, Omar’s campaign sent even more money to E. Street Group, totaling $147,000, with $3,000 of that listed as “travel expenses.”
One must imagine how the media would be responding to this if it was a Trump ally engaging in similar activity.
But everybody knows that the media is completely biased against Trump and his supporters.
Omar has been granted an immense amount of support from the media.
Throughout all of her scandals, the mainstream media worked to downplay, or outright ignore the scandals she was facing.
It is very unlikely that CNN has said anything about Omar’s affair.
Instead, they are trying to impeach President Trump over claims that have been entirely disproven.
They are doing this while Democrats like Omar have proven scandals they are facing.
Do you think Ilhan Omar should resign?
