John Conyers vacated seat after he resigned following allegations of sexual harassment. Tlaib, who was born to Palestinian immigrants, told CNN that her campaign wasn't "about just being out there and flaunting your faith." "I always tell people that I'm exposing Islam in such a pivotal way, an impactful way, through public service," she said in August.

Oh my, the most Muslim area in the US sent a Muslim to congress. It isn't news when Connecticut or Long Island sends a Jewish individual to congress, or Texas when sends a Baptist? So what is the news here? Let see how she serves he constituents.

#4 Generally the title "First" is why it is news.

Maybe you thought the "First" men to land on the moon wasn't news either?

Those things are not news because they have happened many times before. This hasn't.

People still remember Florence Prag Kahn because she was the first Jewish Congresswoman.

Why do you have so much trouble acknowledging this historic achievement?

6 | Posted by rcade Elections are a small achievement, What an individual does after they are elected is much more important. Florence Prag Kahn only claim to fame is her ethnicity. She is a footnote.

Good for her.

But she didnt run against anyone. Basically, she was the only one who applied for the job.
