Ilhan Omar is facing an investigation over her campaign money.
Federal election watchdogs are being asked to determine whether newly divorced congresswoman Ilhan Omar took her lover on trips paid by her campaign.
Peter Flaherty, chairman of the conservative National Legal and Policy Center last month filed an amended version of a complaint he had lodged earlier into Omar's campaign spending, following DailyMail.com's revelation she was having an affair with her finance chief Tim Mynett.
Omar's divorce from husband Ahmed Hirsi became final this week. Mynett's wife Beth has also filed for divorce in the wake of the affair.
Flaherty is asking the Federal Election Commission to investigate payments made by the Minnesota congresswoman's campaign, Ilhan for Congress to Mynett's company, The E Street Group.
Ilhan's campaign paid Mynett's company more than $369,000 since hiring him in August of 2018 and payments run up until this past September. Nearly $25,000 is labeled as travel expenses, according to records filed to the FEC.
