Ilhan Omar Accused Of Violating FEC Regulations Over Her Alleged Boyfriend, Moments Ago The National Legal and Policy Center, an organization that describes their goal as “promoting ethics in public life” is accusing Ilhan Omar of continuing to break the law with regards to her alleged boyfriend’s travel.
Bombshell report from DailyMail alleges Rep. Ilhan Omar is sharing a DC apartment with the married man she denied having an affair with.
They claims to have have obtained photographic evidence that confirms ilhan Omar and Mynett have been hooking up whenever she is in DC for congressional work. In the photo, the pair are seen coming out of Omar’s DC pad in September
Also Dailymail also claims the pair were careful not to be seen entering and leaving the rented digs at the same time but they spent at least six nights together in September, including Thursday, September 20 into Friday, September 21.
Now according to NLPC Ilhan Omar continues to violate Federal Election Commission (FEC) regulations governing travel by her campaign staff.
As detailed in an amendment to our August 28, 2019 FEC Complaint, Omar failed to itemize travel expenses to E Street Group, a firm owned by her boyfriend Tim Mynett in her FEC disclosure reports for the third quarter of 2019. The amendment charges, “Respondents either continue to willfully disregard the law, or misunderstand it.” From the amendment:
Now On October 12, 2019, Ilhan Omar for Congress filed FEC Form 3, Report of Receipts and Disbursements for the period covering July 1, 2019 through September 30, 2019.
The filing reports Total Operating Expenditures of $441,638.95. Of that amount, disbursements totaling $146,712.64 were reported on Schedule B to E Street Group, LLC, owned by Tim Mynett.

Speaking Moreover, a disbursement can be “travel” expense or a “fundraising” expense, but it cannot be both, even if the travel was in conjunction with fundraising activities.
The FEC requires more specific information in reporting travel disbursements, such as the names of airlines, hotels, etc. There is nothing untoward about this, nor anything illegal about it – and the complaint even misstates the law on travel reimbursements (as it is not required for payments to vendors, only for payments specifically to individuals).
furthermore Mitrani claims that NLPC “even misstates the law on travel reimbursements” as he misstates the law himself. FEC instructions on how candidates should report travel reimbursements can be found here.
