Ted Lieu Affirms Support for Linda Sarsour

Democrat Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) told an audience at Politicon in Los Angeles on Saturday that he continues to support extremist Linda Sarsour because of her role in organizing the Women’s March last January.

During a question-and-answer session, Lieu was asked by a supporter of his Republican opponent, Dr. Ken Wright, about his role in presenting an award to the Muslim Sarsour on behalf of a left-wing Asian-American organization in October 2017.

Lieu first protested: “It’s not my award.” Asked to denounce Sarsour, Lieu refused and defended her instead: “She organized the Women’s March, which is an unbelievable march,” he said, overlooking its association with anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan and Sarsour’s other radical views.
