Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) fired back at a vote from the Republican party of Alabama to unseat her from Congress via a tweet referencing sexual harassment allegations against a former candidate.

The Alabama GOP voted to support the commencement of the process to expel Omar through their congressional delegation.

On Tuesday, she responded.

"Sorry, @ALGOPHQ, but this is a representative democracy," Omar responded. "I was elected with 78% of the vote by the people of Minnesota's 5th District, not the Alabama Republican Party."

"If you want to clean up politics, maybe don't nominate an accused child molester as your Senate candidate?" she asked.

Omar was referring to the failed candidacy of Roy Moore for Alabama's seat in the U.S. Senate in 2017. He was accused of approaching underage women in his thirties for romantic and sexual interactions. Moore denied the claims but lost the election.

The Alabama Republicans cited various controversies surrounding anti-Semitic comments made by Omar and also her support of the anti-Israel BDS movement in its motion to expel her.

Omar has not responded to bombshell claims that she committed adultery with an aide whose wife filed the accusations in divorce proceedings revealed on Tuesday.

Here's President Trump commenting on Omar:
