Rep. Ilhan Omar has a history of anti-Semitic statements including one this past week.
Initially she doubled down on her comments, but after being condemned from both Republicans and Democrats she gave a somewhat apology which still included an attack.
Even though she is a freshman representative, and has a history of anti-Semitic statements, Nancy Pelosi appointed her to the influential the House Foreign Affairs Committee. This gives her access to security information and a voice regarding foreign affairs.
A petition has been created to have her removed from that committee.
