Today, following the official swearing-in ceremony for the 110th Congress, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) was photographed with his wife Kim and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). Ellison and Pelosi placed their hands on a copy of the Koran once owned by Thomas Jefferson.
“Look at that. That’s something else,” Ellison said, as officials from the Library of Congress showed him the Koran, which was published in London in 1764. “Oh my God. This is great.”
