Via Twitter this evening, from Representative Vicky Hartzler (r):
Rep. Vicky Hartzler @RepHartzler
Tonight I voted for second House resolution condemning the anti-Semitism associated with Rep. Omar’s repeated remarks. It’s a shame we even need to have a resolution to proclaim this fact. Support for Israel & the Jewish people is fundamental to our democratic ideals.

“…Well, I’ve been to one world’s fair, a picnic, and a rodeo and that’s the stupidest thing I ever heard come over a set of earphones…”
Uh, the resolution doesn’t mention any individual.
The vote this evening:

Twenty-three republicans voted against the resolution. Seriously.
Representative Steven King (r) voted “present”. That’s ironic on so many levels.
