Melissa Hortman, the Minnesota House DFL leader, briefly became a lefty hero when she attacked her “white male” colleagues. and complained that women of color were ignored. Now Hortman is ignoring the women of color who accused Rep. Keith Ellison of domestic abuse.
Within hours of CLF releasing its ads, Minnesota Jobs Coalition posted video of a tracker confronting Melissa Hortman, minority leader of the state House of Representatives.
“Do you believe his accuser?” the tracker asks, as Hortman reaches into the passenger side of a van.
“I believe the congressman has addressed those allegations,” the Democrat says before walking away, the tracker in tow.
Hortman had previously gone after a Muslim woman who offended Islamists.
Rep. Melissa Hortman, the Democrat leader of the Minnesota House, took a stand against Islamic extremism when she sent a letter demanding that Republicans cancel a visit by Muslim activist Raheel Raza because of her ties to “extremist” groups. Were the Democrats suddenly reevaluating their relationships to Islamic hate groups linked to the Muslim Brotherhood such as CAIR and ISNA?
Raheel Raza, the president of Council for Muslims Facing Tomorrow, is a recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal and Toronto’s Constance Hamilton award. She’s a diversity consultant and interfaith activist who taught a series on “Women in Islam” at Ryerson University.
The “extremist” groups are the Clarion Fund and Act for America which monitor Islamic militancy.
Group abuses. Individual abuses. All in a day’s work for the left.
Hortman had also memorably claimed that calling businesses, “job creators” was offensive. Unlike domestic abuse.
