Like a silly schoolgirl with a crush, TN American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC) Chair Zulfat Suara gushes over Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar:
Neither Tlaib nor Omar’s suspect circumstances or their open hatred of all things Jewish and Israel have dimmed Zulfat Suara’s admiration and desire to BE. JUST. LIKE. THEM.
According to Big League Politics, Rashida Tlaib is Haunted by Fake Residence Scandal for having “lied about her address on her voter registration — a crime — and kicked off her entire political career with the lie.”
“Michigan Democrat congresswoman Rashida Tlaib registered to vote from a false address, and represented a state House district that she did not actually live in, according to credit score and property records obtained by Big League Politics. Tlaib’s own father even said that Tlaib ‘lied’ about her address in order to run for office.”
So far, over 287,000 people have signed a petition to impeach Tlaib for lying her way into office.
Ilhan Omar’s problems with truthfulness began shortly after winning the Democratic primary for a seat in the Minnesota state legislature. Minneapolis attorney Scott Johnson broke the story about Omar’s suspected immigration fraud related to having married her brother.
Johnson has preserved and posted screen shots from the Somalipost website where comments “suggest that the information [confirming Omar’s immigration and marriage irregularities], is something of an open secret in the Somali community.”
Omar calls it all “disgusting lies” and “broadly denied the allegations in a statement to The Associated Press, but declined to provide documents or answer specific questions when pressed.”
And to further divert anyone from exposing the truth around these issues, Omar drew on the reliable race card – “she believes the claims are being made by people who want to stop a black, female Muslim from sitting in Congress.”
Well, isn’t that convenient.
While Zulfat openly admires Omar, it looks like she may be taking notes from Tlaib’s playbook.
Does the timing of Zulfat’s Metro Council launch and purchase of property or even residing in Davidson County have weird similarities to Tlaib’s recent troubles?
Zulfat announced her campaign for an at-large Metro Council seat during the January 19, 2019, Nashville Women’s March. Eligible candidates for this position are required to be a resident of Davidson County for at least one year.
Zulfat, her husband and her daughter Zainab Suara co-owned a townhouse in Nashville which they sold December 31, 2018.
A Davidson County property record shows Zulfat and her husband purchasing an address in Davidson County on July 11, 2018 for $650,000 which looked to be a home under construction.
The mailing address for that property’s tax bill is in Bolivar, Tennessee where Zulfat and her family have lived since 2002 and where the bill is addressed.
On January 17 2019, Zulfat and her husband sold the house in Bolivar but Zulfat’s Davidson County tax bill was still being mailed to the Bolivar address. Add to this that the deed transferring the house under construction in Davidson County to Zulfat and her husband is dated July 11, 2018.
But the real problem for Zulfat may be the May 2019 qualifying date for the Metro at-large candidates. The question she has to answer is whether in May 2018, she was a resident of Davidson County.
When the rules say a candidate for a Metro Council at-large seat is supposed to be a resident of Davidson County for at least one year, does that mean that they have to actually live in the county or can they just co-own a townhouse with a daughter or own a house under construction?
