US: new political committee plans to unseat Palestinian American politician

MEMO | June 13, 2022

A new political action committee (PAC) plans to unseat Palestinian American Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib over her clear support for the people of occupied Palestine, the Intercept revealed on Friday. The committee claims that it is “dedicated to empowering urban communities to narrow the wealth gap between Black and White Americans.”

More than 40 Black business and civic leaders launched the Urban Empowerment Action PAC in October. According to the Intercept, the committee “has picked its most prominent and first incumbent target this cycle: Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich.”

It has labelled the challenge against Tlaib as its “premier race” and plans to spend at least $1 million to unseat her, arguing that Detroit, a city with a majority Black electorate, should be represented by a Black person in Congress. The PAC is backing candidate Janice Winfrey, Detroit’s city clerk, who slammed Tlaib’s vote against last year’s bipartisan infrastructure package and her criticism of US military funding to Israel, which Winfrey supports.

This particular PAC is primarily funded by billionaire hedge fund investor and philanthropist Daniel Loeb. Its founder remains unknown.

Tlaib is facing her second primary as an incumbent in August. She has secured $15 million for local community projects in this year’s House budget bill, made efforts to extend the child tax credit and secured the fifth-largest amount of Covid-19 aid allocated for America’s major cities.

“Her public scrutiny of unchecked US funding for Israeli occupation forces has made her a target of pro-Israel groups like the American Israel Public Affairs Committee [of which Loeb is also a donor]… and Pro-Israel America, which endorsed Winfrey in March,” the news organisation pointed out. “If they manage to unseat Tlaib, conservative Democrats would score a monumental win.”

  2. Shades of Christine McKinney(?) who was ousted from her elected position in the Congress, because she would not swear allegiance to Israel.

    The situation in the USA government is intolerable.

    Here’s a good idea America Stop your constant aggression against Israel’s enemies, and take your country back, from the “Aliens” who have undermined completely, the USA Government.

    • I’d only be glad to mention her name: Cynthia McKinney.

      • Sorry…..You are correct, “Cynthia McKinney”, a woman of principle, who wanted to represent the USA…..but, in the USA, ISRAEL takes precedence…..even the American President’s “Airforce One” Plane, is painted in ISRAEL’S colours…..(Light blue and white)……and, apparently, no one, in the USA, has even noticed it…..???

        • Well, her name was not her most important feature. You are absolutely right about her and she would have been the better president.
