AL GOP Adopts Resolution to Expel Omar From Congress
Breitbart reports that Alabama Republicans passed a resolution last weekend at their summer meeting in Auburn urging their congressional delegation to consider expelling Rep. Ilhan Omar from Congress, due in part to her repeated anti-Semitic statements and for actions “sympathetic to radical Islam.”
“Representative Omar has engaged in rhetoric that explicitly runs counter to American values and patriotism by falsely accusing U.S. armed forces of committing war crimes while on mission to liberate her home country of Somalia,” stated the resolution introduced by State Rep. Tommy Hanes.
The resolution also noted that she “dismissed the 9/11 terror attacks waged by radical Islam” and “sympathized with a convicted terrorist” by pushing for “sentencing leniency.” Hanes told Fox News that Omar’s actions were “sympathetic to radical Islam” and that this should be enough to remove her from Congress.
The party approved it on a voice vote with only one Republican voting against the measure.
