According to new information, two Democrat lawmakers have reportedly rejected $2,000 dollar donations from colleague Ilhan Omar.
Lucy McBath and Dan McCready refunded the donations, with McCready allegedly stating that he “didn’t feel it was appropriate to accept the donation” coming from the embattled Omar.

Many social media commenters interpreted the McBath and McCready’s decisions as not only indicative of Democrats’ disorganized party heading into the 2020 election, but also of Omar’s own “toxicity” within Congress.

Democrat Rep. Lucky McBath REJECTED a contribution from anti-Semite Ilhan Omar.
