Rep. Keith Ellison announced this week that he’s running for attorney general of Minnesota, and already six candidates have jumped in to replace him in Congress. Among them is intersectional feminist and state Rep. Ilhan Omar, and an old tweet of hers from 2012 that resurfaced this week suggested she might slip easily into Ellison’s role.

If she weren’t a Democrat, a tweet like that might prove … problematic.

Here’s an interesting development:

“I know that she will champion progressive Minnesota values in Congress” — yeah, see, that’s the problem.
