While serving in the Minnesota State legislature a bill was introduced. It would permit Insurance companies to block payment of death benefits for anyone who died committing an act of terror against the United States.
In a bipartisan effort, Republicans and Democrats joined together to pass the bill 127-2. Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minneapolis) and John Lesch (D-St.Paul) were the only two lawmakers who voted against the measure.
Congresswoman Omar has been in hot water for anti-semitic statements and backhanded apologies. Her recent confrontation with a Jewish witness during a congressional hearing has also raised some eyebrows.
Media Attention Leads to Media Scrutiny
Other reports from Minnesota indicate that two days after being elected to state office, “Rep. Omar sent a letter to Judge Michael Brown asking for leniency for 9 nine Somali men facing sentencing for trying to join ISIS.”
She also opposed programs to prevent homegrown terrorism, siding with CAIR in MN which claims that “the program promotes Islamophobia and racism.”
Despite battling accusations of anti-Semitism, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn) is due to speak this month at a fundraising event alongside a senior charity official who has published social-media posts praising the killing of Jews.
And the Women’s March thought they had problems.
