Ilhan Omar Raises Over Million Dollars in 3rd Quarter Fundraising - The Clarion Project
From the Clarion Project:
Freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is gearing up for a re-election race in 2020 for Minnesota’s 5th district, and reports of 3rd quarter donations have already pushed her over over the million dollar mark.
CBS Minnesota reports that Omar raised $1.1 million dollars between July 2019 through September 2019, with the average donation amount totaling $14.55.
The donations have been coming in for Omar despite her history of vitriolic anti-Semitic comments, questions of campaign financing violations and a rushed divorce from her husband, following allegations of an affair with her political consultant, Tim Mynett. The affair was cited by Mynett’s wife when filing for a divorce from Mynett.
The news of Ilhan Omar’s 3rd quarter donations tallying over a cool million is especially challenging to the league of counter-Islamists who often struggle to find funding for their work.
Some counter-Islamists have noticed that in recent months, Omar most likely received some media coaching following a round of soft interviews that showcases a “softer” and more polished Omar.
In other words, some people who are allied with "some people who did something" also support Ilhan Omar. They are able to donate vast sums of cash to keep Omar in Congress. So it is clear that, no matter what she does, or says, or tweets, or who she marries, or has affairs with, or divorces, or no matter how corrupt or anti-American she is, or who runs against her, her seat is safe. She will be in Congress for as long as she and some people want her there.
