Minnesota Democrat, Ilhan Omar's campaign has already paid her husband's political firm almost $300,000 this year, campaign finance filings have revealed.

Omar's campaign paid her husband's firm, E Street Group, $292,000 for travel, advertising, fundraising, and other services between January and March.

The Minnesota Democrat’s relationship with her husband, Tim Mynett, who she married this year, came under fire after his ex-wife said in a divorce filing he was having an affair with the congresswoman.

But Mynett denied the affair.

Omar defended the campaign’s payments to E Street, arguing it pays fair market value for the firm’s services.

“My relationship with Tim began long after this work started,” she tweeted.

“We consulted with a top FEC campaign attorney to ensure there were no possible legal issues with our relationship."

"We were told this is not uncommon and that no, there weren’t.”

As Neon Nettle reported last year, Omar funneled over $586,000 in campaign cash to Mynett's company in 2019.

Omar sent over half-a-million dollars to the group in the 2018 and 2020 election cycles, accounting for almost half of all the money the company took in from federal candidates.

Responding to public scrutiny of her relationship with Mynett, Omar said:

"No, I am not," Omar falsely claimed when asked whether she was separated from her husband and dating Mynett.

In July, political watchdog group Judicial Watch filed a House ethics complaint against Omar over allegations of potential immigration, marriage, and tax fraud.

The organization's president, Tom Fitton, called for an investigation into Omar following the reemergence of claims she married her biological brother.

“The evidence is overwhelming Rep. Omar may have violated the law and House rules,” Judicial Watch's Fitton said in a statement.

"The House of Representatives must urgently investigate and resolve the serious allegations of wrongdoing by Rep. Omar."
