Four-time loser GOP House candidate indicted for fraud

“Federal prosecutors today unsealed a grand jury indictment that accuses a Torrance man who was a candidate for a Los Angeles County congressional seat in four federal elections with misusing campaign funds, including funneling tens of thousands of dollars in campaign donations back to himself through his friends and family. Omar Navarro, 34, is charged in a 43-count grand jury indictment. He is currently in state custody on unrelated charges, but he is expected to be turned over soon to federal authorities. As part of the case against Navarro, FBI agents today arrested Dora Asghari, 59, of Torrance, who is Navarro’s mother, and Zacharias Diamantides-Abel, 34, of Long Beach, who is a friend of Navarro, both of whom are accused of conspiring with Navarro to convert campaign donations to personal use,” says a Justice Department press release.

“Navarro unsuccessfully campaigned in the four most recent election cycles to represent south Los Angeles County residents in California’s 43rd Congressional District in the US House of Representatives. The indictment returned on September 14 and unsealed today alleges that Navarro, from September 2017 through July 2020, illegally funneled campaign cash to himself. The indictment outlines a scheme in which Navarro allegedly made payments from his campaign to various individuals – including Asghari and Abel – and then directed the transfer of cash back to himself for personal use. Navarro also allegedly used campaign funds to pay for personal expenses, including trips to Las Vegas and wine country, as well as two criminal defense attorneys. According to the indictment, Navarro later falsely reported these expenditures as campaign expenses.”

Navarro, who lost to Maxine Waters in 2016, 2018, 2020, and 2022, also made headlines in 2019 when QAnon freak DeAnna Lorraine, who lost to Nancy Pelosi in 2020, called the cops on Navarro for felony stalking, criminal threats, and attempted extortion. Navarro texted “Bitch, I came to see you” to Lorraine from outside her home at 1:30 in the morning in violation of a five-year restraining order. Lorriane also said Navarro had threatened to leak her family’s addresses to Antifa.
