Huma Abedin-like Scandal in Tennessee

It’s not just Huma Abedin coming under attack by the batshit wing of the GOP.

In Tennessee, Republican Governor Bill Haslam is under siege by the crazies in his party for appointing Samar Ali to be international director of Tennessee’s Department of Economic and Community Development.

Ali, who grew up in Tennessee as the daughter of two Arab Muslim doctors, is a graduate of Vanderbilt University (where she was president of the student body)  and Vanderbilt Law, worked in private law practice, and was a White House Fellow.

No one is questioning her qualifications for the job, they are questioning her loyalty to the United States!

This garbage is coming from the same source as the Huma Abedin attacks — ultra-right fringe character Frank Gaffney and his Center for Security Policy.
