Congress Member's Criticism Of Israel Creates Controversy

First term Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, of Minnesota, is being taken to task for her criticism of Israel and one of her colleagues, Congressman Kevin McCarthy is threatening punishment.

Omar is of the belief that American politicians are being paid to be Pro-Israel.

When pressed on Twitter Sunday night as to who may be coughing up the cash to politicians, Omar said 'AIPAC!' AIPAC is the American Israel Political Affairs Committee and it does not actually make contributions to politicians.

When further pressed, Omar said simply 'it's all about the benjamins, baby!'
