Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore (R) is demanding for Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) to go back to her native country Somalia after the anti-Semitic Democrat called the controversial retired judge a “child molester.”
The feud began after the Alabama Republican Party passed a resolution last month demanding the Islamic lawmaker be expelled from Congress.
The legislation cited incendiary comments Omar has made condemning Israel, remarks prompted the Jewish state to bar her from entry.
“Omar has a disturbing record of using anti-Semitic language that includes alleging Jewish money is used to buy American influence regarding its policy toward Israel,” the Alabama GOP resolution states.
“Rep. Omar has engaged in rhetoric that explicitly runs counter to American values and patriotism,” it continues. “The Alabama Republican Party urges its elected congressional delegation to proceed with the expulsion process in accordance to Article 1, Section 5 of the U.S. Constitution to expel Rep. Ilhan Omar from the United States House of Representatives.”
After the measure made national headlines, Omar fired back against the Alabama GOP, claiming it champions a child predator.
“Sorry [Alabama GOP], but this is a representative democracy,” Omar tweeted Tuesday. “I was elected with 78% of the vote by the people of Minnesota’s 5th District, not the Alabama Republican Party. If you want to clean up politics, maybe don’t nominate an accused child molester as your Senate candidate?”
President Trump was right when he told Omar and the group of anti-Semitic congresswomen who call themselves “the Squad” to “go back” to where the came from, Moore argued.
“President Trump was right,” he said. “She should go back back to Somalia from whence she came”.”
The former chief justice shot back in a series of tweets, touting his long career as a magistrate and arguing the “avowed Muslim” congresswoman as a “sworn enemy of Israel.”
“While in Congress [Omar] has been accused of numerous sexual relationships,” Moore tweeted. “I have been married to my wife, Kayla, since Omar was three and fought for my Country in Vietnam over 10 years before O was born. I fully support the resolution of the Alabama Republican Party asking Congress to expel Omar under Article 1 Section 5 of the US Constitution, I was sworn to defend after my graduation from the United States Military Academy at West Point.”
Moore launched his campaign to unseat Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL) in June. Moore is a Trump supporter, however the president has urged Moore not to run again for the Alabama senate, arguing it would be “devastating” following his failed bid in 2017, adding “the incredible gains that we have made during my Presidency may be lost, including our Pro-Life victories.”
”Republicans cannot allow themselves to again lose the Senate seat in the Great State of Alabama. This time it will be for Six Years, not just Two,” Trump, who backed Moore in 2017, wrote on Twitter. “I have NOTHING against Roy Moore, and unlike many other Republican leaders, wanted him to win. But he didn’t, and probably won’t.”
Omar’s 9-month tenure in the House of Representatives has been plagued with scandal. The freshman lawmaker is currently under investigation for an ethics violation after she allegedly funneled thousands of dollars in campaign funds to her lover, a married member of her political consulting team.
The National Legal and Policy Center filed a complaint against Omar with the Federal Election Commission last Wednesday, claiming she used funds to illegally reimburse her purported paramour’s personal travel expenses with the campaign funds.
“It looks like on the surface that she used campaign finance funds to benefit her paramour,” said Tom Fitton, head of conservative government watchdog group Judicial Watch.
Last month, Judicial Watch asked the House Office of Congressional Ethics to investigate widespread allegations claiming that Omar married her brother to get him a green card and circumvent immigration law.
