The apple never falls far from the tree. Illinois residents take heed. Ameena Matthews, a Democrat running for a seat in the House of Representatives. Ameena’s father took money from Libya, to the tune of 2.5 million US dollars, to commit acts of domestic terrorism in the United States.
TINLEY PARK, IL — Anti-violence activist Ameena Matthews will be running for the 1st District Congressional seat that longtime Representative Bobby Rush now holds.
Matthews is known for her work as a violence interrupter for the Chicago-based nonprofit formerly known as CeaseFire, now called Cure Violence, and was featured in the documentary The Interrupters about her work. She is the CEO of Pause For Peace, an anti-violence organization in Chicago.
She said she’s running because Rush, a Democrat, has failed to support bills that enhance public safety, support criminal justice reform and protect women’s rights.
That is just fantastic….here’s her Twitter account. It didn’t take me long to find her talking about Allah.
Do you think she holds the same beliefs as her father?
