Fellow Democrats fed up

The anti-Semitic rants of U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minnesota, have rankled more than just a few Democrats, though most hold their tongue. But Colorado Democratic Gov. Jared Polis is speaking up with his checkbook, making a $1,000 donation to Omar's primary opponent, Antone Melton-Meaux.

Melton-Meaux raised $3.2 million last quarter, according to campaign filings, while Omar, who was named anti-Semite of the year in 2019 by, an organization that seeks to combat anti-Jewish bias, collected $471,000.

Polis, who is Jewish, may be tired of the first-term congresswoman's hate, in which she - according to - "perpetuated anti-Semitic tropes on Twitter to nearly two million followers and introduced an anti-Semitic resolution in Congress that promoted boycotts of the State of Israel and likened them to boycotts of Nazi Germany."
