Second Muslim in Congress

No Analysis, Just the NEWS!!!

Andre Carson, also known as the Juggernaut (rap name), who converted to Islam some seven years ago is now OFFICIALLY THE SECOND MUSLIM IN CONGRESS!!!

May Allah have mercy on the poor man, he has his work cut out for him. Here is a link to Indy Star, that tells of how he handly defeated his opponent and got a wide population to come and vote for him- hispanics, blacks, whites, poor, rich.

So the question that comes to my mind: are his politics any better than Keith Ellison's?

LOL- Keith Ellison helped him get elected and if you came to the forum with Keith back in January, you would have had an opportunity to learn more about his politics instead of base it on what you read here and there.

I still might have issues with Keith, but for the most part he's sincere and he's doing something rather then sitting back and blogging.

sorry, i MADE A HUGE ASSUMPTION, i assumed anonymous lives in SOCAL. I take my statement back.

However, you can directly get in touch with Kieth's office to get answers to your pressing questions. I can try my best to get answers, but I cant say it will be any faster then you trying to get them addressed yourself.

again sorry for the assumption. I keep thinking this is a SOCAL thing but it seems our readership has mushroomed, funny thing this internet...LOL.

he's a rapping politician, i guess that makes him uniquely suited for both of our points of views.
