Every time we hear from a “squad” member, it just gets worse and worse. It’s not as if we want to bury them in controversy. They just seem to attract all on their own.
We told you about Ilhan Omar. How she left her husband to marry another man (who left his wife for her). Then, we found out that Omar paid her new husband’s company millions out of her campaign funds.
They say it was for consulting work but quickly ended the arrangement after the news broke.
But that is not the end of the story. Now, it looks like a huge chunk of COVID funds (which, we remind you, were not supposed to go to D.C. leader’s families) may have helped Omar’s hubby.
From Fox News:
A D.C.-based consulting firm co-owned by Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar’s husband received millions from her campaign and was also eligible for more than $500,000 in coronavirus bailout money.
Public records show that E Street Group, co-owned by Omar’s husband, Tim Mynett, received nearly $135,000 in Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans and $500,000 in Economic Injury Disaster loans.
According to reports, Omar’s husband’s firm, E Street Group, got over half a million from COVID relief programs.
This, after it earned millions for doing campaign work for Omar.
This is particularly troubling, because they got some of that money from the Paycheck Protect Program. Remember, this program was aimed at saving businesses struggling under harsh lockdowns.
That means restaurants and other small businesses that couldn’t operate, thanks to government-mandated orders.
But E Street Group got millions from Omar. They apparently weren’t locked down, nor did they suffer a loss in profits. They continued their work for her during the election season.
So, why did they get this cash? They also got $500,000 from Economic Injury Disaster loans. Really? Was E Street Group facing disaster, when they were “consulting” for Omar’s campaign?
Those funds were meant to help those struggling thanks to the COVID pandemic. Companies that couldn’t work or earn a profit because of how the virus impacted their business.
On top of that, Democrats put rules into the relief funding that states the families of politicians couldn’t apply for this money. We know that, because they wanted to prevent Trump enterprises from getting cash—just to spite the president.
Yet Omar’s hubby can cash in (as Pelosi’s husband and others have been accused of)? That’s fishy to me, especially when it seemed E Street Group didn’t even need the cash.
We saw that major companies (and even Harvard University) took cash from the COVID funds, when they didn’t need it (and didn’t qualify). But that’s what happens when the government is writing blank checks.
How about we stop handing out money like Halloween candy and just reopen the country? That would stop people like Omar in their tracks.
- Ilhan Omar’s husband’s company got over half a million from COVID funds.
- Those funds were designated for businesses impacted by the pandemic.
- E Street Group was apparently not shut down, as it got millions from Omar’s campaign.
