Conservative group targets Ilhan Omar over payments to ‘lover’

The conservative group Judicial Watch wants the Office of Congressional Ethics to investigate Rep. Ilhan Omar for $230,000 in payments her campaign made to contractor Tim Mynett — who is also her alleged lover.

“Rep. Omar has significant ethics problems, and the House Ethics Committee must act to investigate the serious and substantial allegations against her,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement.

“Frankly, there’s more than enough evidence for the Justice Department to initiate a criminal investigation of Rep. Omar,” he claimed.

The revelation of the alleged affair came in Beth Mynett’s divorce filing, first published by The Post, which accused the 37-year-old freshman Minnesota congresswoman of stealing her hubby, Tim.

But Mynett, 38, claimed his wife, 55, pressured him into getting married in 2012 after the birth of their son William in 2006 and said the unhappy marriage broke down because of their different parenting styles.

Tim Mynett and Omar, a married mom of three, have denied the allegations about the affair.

Omar’s campaign has paid Mynett’s E Street Group consulting firm $230,000 — including $70,000 since April 2019 — raising concerns of potential ethics violations.

Judicial Watch contended that something was fishy about the payments — and suggested that Omar was funneling cash illegally to her purported paramour.

“The bulk of the proceeds paid to E Street ($175,371.40) were [sic] funneled to E Street after the November 2018 congressional elections, thereby calling into question the true purpose of the payments,” the group said, adding that the payments could violate federal Election Commission rules
