GOP calls on Pelosi to cancel CAIR forum slated for Capitol

I’m picturing an election ad with photos, names, and descriptions flashing by of the three CAIR officials convicted or deported for links to terrorism. Followed by this quote:

“It’s really disappointing,” said CAIR national communications director Ibrahim Hooper, that whenever there’s an attack from elective officials “we don’t even ask any more which party it is. It should be a concern to ordinary Republicans that the party is being viewed as a reservoir of anti-Muslim hate.”

It’ll never happen, though. For one thing, the attacks on CAIR are more bipartisan than Hooper would have us believe. And for another thing, er…

Still, it’s a bit of a dilemma for Madam Speaker. It was another Democrat, Rep. Bill Pascrell, who booked the room, which is assigned to the Ways and Means Committee; Pelosi’s office is claiming she has no authority over how it’s used, but I’m sure if she had a word with Pascrell he might “reconsider” his position.

Exit question: should we expect CAIR’s favorite congressman to intervene here or are his connections with the group something he’ll be keeping on the downlow from now on?
