House Democratic leaders on Wednesday will call up a vote on a resolution condemning anti-Semitism — a move meant to respond to anti-Israel comments made by Minnesota Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar.

Staff from the offices of Speaker Nancy Pelosi, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, Foreign Affairs Chairman Eliot Engel, Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler and Ethics Chairman Ted Deutch worked on the resolution over the weekend but the text has yet to be finalized, according to a senior Democratic aide.

Rep. Peter Roskam gave a tour of his congressional office in 2009 for Roll Call’s “Office Space” series, which returns this fall.

The Illinois Republican’s office in the Cannon House Office Building initially had “a large blank wall,” reporter Ali McSherry wrote in the original story. The space was later filled by a “large oil painting created by his wife, Elizabeth … [that] took a year to create.”
