Commissioner reprimanded for post on Muslim congresswoman

Commissioners in a South Florida city are reprimanding a fellow council member over remarks on a Facebook post about the first Palestinian-American woman elected to the U.S. Congress.

Hawzah News Agency (Florida, US) - Hallandale Beach commissioners voted Wednesday to condemn Commissioner Anabelle Lima-Taub for writing that U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib, a Democrat from Detroit, might become "a martyr and blow up Capitol Hill."

Tlaib is one of two Muslim women elected to Congress in November. Lima-Taub remains unapologetic, telling commissioners her life is in danger. 

 

 

The Miami Herald reports Lima-Taub told the board that if she's found dead she holds Commissioner Michelle Lazarow, who sponsored the resolution, responsible. Lazarow said the controversy has "brought out hate like I have never seen before."
