GOP reps. introduce ‘OMAR Act’ to crackdown on lawmakers who channel campaign funds to spouse

Rep. Omar Campaign Payments Accounted For 80% Of Husband’s Firm’s Cash E Street Group received $3.7 million from political committees this past cycle, keeping it afloat

Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) campaign payments to her husband’s consultancy firm accounted for approximately 80 percent of its cash haul during the 2020 elections, federal filings show, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

The E Street Group, a Washington, DC, consulting firm which Omar’s husband, Tim Mynett and his business partner Will Hailer own, received $3.7 million from political committees this past cycle.

“Omar’s campaign was by far its biggest moneymaker, writing more than 140 checks for a grand total of $2.9 million, or 78 percent of the firm’s payments. Its second biggest cash source was Omar mentor Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), whose campaign provided $194,000. The two combined for 85 percent of the firm’s payments,” reported the Beacon.

As a result, House Republicans, who have had plenty of distractions over the last week or so, between the Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) situation and the fate of their third-most senior lawmaker Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) introduced a bill Friday to prevent candidates from adding their spouses to the campaign payroll — dubbing it the OMAR act, according to the Washington Times.

Omar has come under increasing scrutiny for her use of Mynett’s firm, after previously large payments were also uncovered, including reports E Street Group received a significant tranche of COVID-19 relief money – to the tune of approximately $500,000.

Omar has been dogged by questions about her personal life since she first ran for state representative in 2016, with conservatives alleging she was married to Hirsi and another man at once, and that the other man was her brother.
