Democrat Keith Ellison is the first Muslim to serve in the United States Congress. He represents the 5th Congressional District of Minnesota. Born in Detroit, he converted to Islam while in college. Ellison is quite contraversial due to past statements made about Jews and White people, and his ties with the radical Nation of Islam.

During his swearing in ceremony in early January 2007, Ellison replaced the Bible with a the Quran and then took his oath of duty with one hand placed on the Quran.
