Radical Rashida Strikes Again

LANSING, Mich., February 28, 2019–  The following is a statement from Michigan Republican Party Chairwoman Laura Cox regarding yesterday’s incident in which Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib broke with long-standing house decorum by insinuating that fellow Congressman Mark Meadows was a racist during public congressional hearings. This is not the first time Tlaib has gotten herself into hot water during her short tenure. On her first day in the House, Tlaib drew criticism for calling the President a “Mother***er” and her support of anti-Semitic groups has stirred controversy regarding her fitness for office.

“Yesterday in a blatant attempt to silence a political opponent, Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib made baseless accusations of racism against a fellow member of Congress. This shameful and slanderous act is sadly another example of how Congresswoman Tlaib would rather impress democratic socialist radicals with inflammatory rhetoric, rather than get something done for the people of Michigan. It’s time that Rashida Tlaib realize that she is now servant of the people and no longer a professional progressive bomb thrower.”
