Frustrated and embattled Congresswoman Omar was caught on video bolting out of a grocery store, as she attempted to escape a sea of eager reporters.
Omar, who is accused of engaging in an adulterous affair by the jilted wife of her alleged lover, refused to answer questions about the reported affair, or the possibility that she funneled campaign funds to her lover, Tim Mynett, a D.C. consultant. It would appear that Omar presumably did not want to answer possible questions about how adultery is dealt with in her native Somalia.
When asked why she wouldn’t answer questions, Omar replied that the questions about the affair and campaign funds were “stupid.”
So according to Omar, anyone asking for clarification and transparency from her is “stupid,” but holding Trump and other Republicans’ feet to the fire over everything under the sun is fair game for her ‘Squad’?
Sorry, that’s not how the real world works, snowflake.
Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., dismissed what she called “stupid questions” from reporters on Wednesday about allegations she misused campaign funds to reimburse her purported paramour for personal travel expenses.
The National Legal and Policy Center, a nonprofit focusing on ethics in public life, this week filed a Federal Election Commission (FEC) complaint against Omar claiming she misused more than $200,000 in campaign funds and failed to itemize travel reimbursements to Tim Mynett’s E. Street Group, LLC, a political consulting group.
Mynett’s wife filed for divorce Tuesday and claimed he told her about an affair with Omar earlier this year.
“Congresswoman, why are you dodging these questions?” a reporter asked Wednesday at one of Omar’s official appearances at a north Minneapolis grocery store.
“Because they’re stupid questions,” she responded.
One of Omar’s aides then blocked reporters from getting any closer to the congresswoman, Fox 9 reported. [Fox News]
