No, Nancy, an unequivocal apology is not good enough (“Top Democrats force Ilhan Omar to apologize for Jewish money tweets,” Web, Feb. 11). That Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, the two first Muslim congresswomen, are racists is a stain on the Democratic Party. They should have been vetted and ejected from the party long before the midterm elections.

Ms. Omar cannot apologize away her anti-Semitism. It is who she is, just as she is a woman and a Muslim.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi must do the right thing or acknowledge that her party is OK with a racist component. The very least Mrs. Pelosi can do is ensure these two congresswomen are not members of any committee.

In the next election, Minnesota and Michigan voters should select more appropriate representation.
