Ellison Makes Big Impression On Tancredo
Keith Ellison, Freshman Moonbat, er, Congressman, from Minnesota has a very weird way of reaching out and meeting his colleagues in Congress. From The Hill:
Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) believes it is his right as a Muslim to be sworn into Congress with the Quran. But apparently, the freshman lawmaker doesn’t believe it’s Rep. Tom Tancredo’s (R-Colo.) right to smoke a cigar in his congressional office.
Ellison’s office called the Capitol Hill Police on Tancredo last Wednesday night as Tancredo was in his office smoking a cigar. The lawmakers have neighboring offices on the first floor of the Longworth House Office Building.
According to the piece, Ellison was informed that Tancredo is permitted to smoke in his office. The complaint stems from a claim that the smoke is passing through the walls (despite three air purifiers Tancredo has installed in his office). Sounds like the walls in the halls of Congress must be pretty thin. Or maybe Ellison and his staff simply don’t like being next door to a Republican.
Regardless of the reasons, Ellison would have done better to have gone next door and visited with Tancredo, expressing his concerns about the smoking rather than calling the cops. Sure, tobacco smoke stinks, but so does Ellison’s whining the cops.
