Maybe Ilhan Omar had a point – it is all about the Benjamins baby.
As the freshman U.S. representative was called out by her own Democratic Party leadership for anti-Semitic tweets implying Jewish money controls the Congress she now sits in, ideological allies took to social media encouraging people to donate to Omar’s 2020 campaign.
They linked to a fundraising page hosted by Act Blue, a self described “nonprofit, building fundraising technology for the left.”
Zahra Billoo, director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) San Francisco chapter, said she made a donation to Omar’s re-election campaign Monday and urged followers to do the same. “Tweets to support her are important,” Billoo wrote, “but let’s also ensure she can keep on doing the important work she’s doing.”
