No one is working harder to keep Ilham Omar in office than Nancy Pelosi.
Why is that?
Omar’s primary campaign is failing miserably and is in deep financial trouble after her popularity has plummeted thanks to extramarital affairs, the “brother scandal,” and funneling over a million dollars to her new husband’s organization. And speaking of “funneling,” Nancy Pelosi is now funneling money to the “Titanic” Omar campaign.
New FEC data shows Pelosi sent Omar $4K from her own campaign and another $10k came from a Pelosi-backing SuperPac.
New FEC filing today shows Ilhan Omar's campaign received $4,000 from Nancy Pelosi's campaign, as well as $10,000 from PAC To The Future—which draws the bulk of it's funding from Pelosi's billionaire funded Victory Fund, on top of corporations like Goldman Sachs and Boeing. pic.twitter.com/EJyXRsDeiJ

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) funneled $14,000 to Rep. Ilhan Omar’s campaign in late July as the Minnesota Democrat struggled to fend off a well-funded primary challenge.
Federal Election Commission records released Thursday show that Pelosi transferred $10,000 from her PAC and an additional $4,000 from her campaign committee to Omar on July 22, one week after Pelosi endorsed Omar in her reelection bid.
The Minnesota Democrat is facing an expensive primary battle against attorney Antone Melton-Meaux, who outraised Omar significantly in the second quarter of 2020. Melton-Meaux raked in $3.3 million between April and June to Omar’s $470,000. Included in the challenger’s donor list is Democratic Colorado governor Jared Polis, who gave $1,000 to Melton-Meaux’s campaign on July 27.
The impressive fundraising haul allowed Melton-Meaux to spend more than $1.7 million over the first three weeks of July. Omar, meanwhile, spent just $784,000. More than $600,000—77 percent of those disbursements—went to a D.C.-based consulting firm run by Omar’s new husband.
Meanwhile, Pelosi is also fretting over another Squad member Rashida Tlaib, who is also having one tough primary.
Seems the only Squad member Pelosi doesn’t care about is AOC. Word on the street is that Pelosi was supporting AOC’s primary challenger behind the scenes.
But much to Nancy’s dismay, AOC beat her challenger, thanks to very low voter turnout.
