Steny Hoyer Under Fire for Condemning Anti-Semitism

House Majority Whip Steny Hoyer (D., Md.) is taking a stand against the Democratic Party's base. The 79-year-old congressman not only attended and delivered a speech at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s annual conference on Sunday—Hoyer also took a not-so-subtle jab at freshman Democrats such as Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) who have come under fire for repeatedly making anti-Semitic remarks.
