In a more sane world, Ms. Water's former city council seat would be the pinnacle of her political career (except for the fact she be a premier goddess of the Lo-Info crowd).
It would be highly interesting to see potential congressional candidates take a basic 8th grade civics test as a requirement for quailifing to run for office. But I guess that would be called racist nowdays. So the saga continues....
"The Council of Pakistan Affairs and Islamic Society of Orange County welcomed Maxine Waters to a meeting along with other extremists in Congress like Congresswomen Chu and Sanchez, the California Comptroller et al where she made her comments. They would have been controversial ten years ago but in this PC age, the Constitution is controversial.
Maxine Waters is under the impression that Shariah Law can be implemented while our U.S. Constitution is in effect. Anyone who disagrees is an Islamophobe and a hater according to her.
Congresswoman Waters accused Republicans of "attacking the Islamic faith as a national security threat."

She said that fear tactics accusing Muslims of trying to spread tenets of Shariah into our government has spurred legislation to ban Shariah.
