Ilhan Omar Paid Her Husband’s Consulting Firm Millions

Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D‑Minn.) cam­paign paid her husband’s con­sult­ing firm mil­lions of dol­lars dur­ing the 2019–2020 elec­tion cycle, but Omar will be cut­ting off the firm going for­ward. After Omar was caught in an affair with polit­i­cal con­sul­tant Tim Mynett, her now-ex-hus­band Ahmed Hir­si asked for a divorce and Mynett divorced his own wife. Omar mar­ried Mynett this past March.

“So we’ve decid­ed to ter­mi­nate our con­tract with Tim and Will’s firm,” Omar’s cam­paign announced in an email to sup­port­ers, first report­ed by the Wash­ing­ton Free Bea­con. “While many of our close sup­port­ers know these two well and have rec­om­mend­ed we keep them on — I want to make sure that any­body who is sup­port­ing our cam­paign with their time or finan­cial sup­port feels there is no per­ceived issue with that support.”

Records from the Fed­er­al Elec­tion Com­mis­sion show Omar’s cam­paign paid Mynett’s firm E Street Group $2.8 mil­lion dur­ing the 2020 elec­tion cycle. The cam­paign paid E Street Group for dig­i­tal adver­tis­ing in pay­ments rang­ing between $50,000 and $400,000. The cam­paign also paid the firm $12,000 bimonth­ly, $38,000 for direct mail, and $44,000 for mail advertising.
