(JustPatriots.com)- Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) believes that the government should forgive student debt, including her own. However, the “Squad” member’s spouse may be able to pay off her debts with the proceeds from his vineyard.
This week, Omar pushed President Joe Biden to abolish all student debt during a speech in Washington. Omar, who lamented that she still has student debt at the age of 40, said Biden could “with the stroke of a pen” alleviate the load for all borrowers. However, public documents show that Omar is in an excellent position to pay down her college loans, valued at between $15,001 and $50,000, according to financial reports.
As a member of Congress, Omar earns $174,000 a year. Her husband, Tim Mynett, is a partner in the eStCru winery in California. According to Omar’s declarations, Mynett collected between $15,001 and $50,000 from the winery. The winery has vineyards in Sonoma County, California, and Oregon and claims to manufacture numerous “boundary-breaking” wines.
The 2020 “Blockchain” Cabernet Sauvignon, which sells for $38, and a $20 bottle labeled “This Rose is So Fetch” are among the offerings. eStCru aims to release a red blend called “No Middle Ground,” an homage to Omar’s politics.
Mynett also leads the E Street Group, a political consulting firm that advises the Democratic National Committee and different political campaigns. During the 2020 election cycle, Omar’s campaign gave the firm $2.9 million. According to Omar’s statement, Mynett earned between $100,001 and $1 million in partnership income from the firm.
Omar’s communications director slammed conservatives who accused her of begging for money, claiming that Omar is a refugee who “came to this country with absolutely nothing and worked many jobs to get through college and feed her family before being elected to Congress.”
Jeremy Slevin, Omar’s communications aide, yelled, “Get the f**k out of here.”
After divorcing her then-husband, Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi, Omar married Mynett in March 2020. When she started dating Mynett, the politician said she was divorced from Hirsi, but Mynett’s ex-wife accused them of having an illicit affair in 2019.
Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, Omar’s first husband, has also been accused of being her brother. She’s been adamant about not answering inquiries regarding Elmi.
