Freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has been embroiled in controversy ever since being inaugurated in January.
Despite a series of unbelievable gaffes, the liberal media continue to defend her.
And now the media are being tight-lipped about yet another scandal involving Omar.
Ilhan Omar and the other three members of ‘The Squad’ – far-left freshmen Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley – are media sensations.
They won uncompetitive deep blue districts, but have been branded the “fresh faces” of the Democratic Party.
The truth is, they’re wild socialists with terrible ideas that go almost entirely unchallenged by the so-called mainstream media.
The media also refuses to talk seriously about the scandals that surround them, particularly Omar.
She has routinely made anti-Semitic remarks, called Donald Trump sub-human, referred to the 9/11 terror attacks as “some people did something,” and allegedly married her own brother in order to commit immigration and student loan fraud.
The liberal media still refuses to dig into the weeds of Omar’s supposed marriage scam.
There is also strong evidence to suggest that the man Omar married, brother or not, is a homosexual, so the claims of immigration fraud are even stronger.
And now Omar is entangled in a new scandal that is being negligently underreported by the so-called mainstream media.
Omar was allegedly having an affair with a married man, Democratic strategist Tim Mynett.
According to divorce filings from Mynett’s wife, Dr. Beth Mynett, his affair with Omar led to the dissolution of their marriage.
Beth Mynett even stated her husband made a “declaration of love” to Omar.
And it gets worse.
Omar’s campaign paid Mynett $230,000 for consulting fees, which very likely is a violation of campaign finance law.
An FEC complaint has been filed, so at some point, the media will have to report on this.
So far, the liberal media have been mum, with only the right-leaning outlets reporting on this scandal.
A Google search barely turns up any left-wing discussion of this latest controversy – or simply attempts to frame it in the ridiculous “Republicans pounce” narrative.
The Washington Post even used the technique of saying Omar is bravely facing death threats, which is not unique to her or ‘The Squad.’
All public figures, both left and right, get hate mail.
Omar isn’t even the only member to find herself in this type of position.
Ocasio-Cortez also drew attention for campaign finance violations for funneling consulting money to her boyfriend.
These young socialists are up to the same tricks of old socialists and other big-government con-artists.
They’re hypocrites who live large off the backs of taxpayers while doing nothing for them in return.
But despite the outstretched media praise, The Squad is wildly unpopular.
A recent poll showed that Ocasio-Cortez was recognized by 74% of respondents, but only 22% viewed her favorably.
The numbers were even worse for Omar.
Roughly 53% of respondents had heard of her, but only 9% viewed her favorably.
If Omar and The Squad continue to be mired in scandal and stupidity, they may not get a second term.
