On Tuesday night, the US House of Representatives voted to censure Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) by a vote of 234 – 188.The mostly symbolic measure, introduced by Rep. Rich McCormick (R-GA) on Monday, served as a formal public criticism of the progressive “Squad” member’s most recent antisemitic comments in response to Israel’s war against Hamas terrorists.
