A Woman the Dems Just Elected Has a History of Making Some Pretty Anti-Semitic Statements

Ilhan Omar became the first Somali-American woman elected to Congress Tuesday night, prevailing in Minnesota's 5th Congressional District over Republican Jennifer Zielinski. Omar and Michigan’s Rashida Tlaib are also the first Muslim women elected to Congress. 

Democrats are celebrating Omar's win and the diversity in their party, but they may regret their choice after scrolling back through her Twitter timeline. Here's what she had to say about Israel in 2012.

Democrats are expected to take some heat for this win. In recent months some liberal leaders have also been criticized for their ties to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who just last month suggested Jews were "termites." Newly elected Minnesota Attorney General and former DNC Deputy Chair Keith Ellison has for years been connected to Farrakhan, but many would agree he has failed to properly distance himself from him.

Some analysts who have closely followed Washington politics say Tuesday night's election outcomes are unsurprising.

During her campaign, Omar focused on single-payer health care, gun control and immigration. In an interview with CBS Wednesday, the newly elected congresswoman said she plans on embracing refugees.
