Rep. Keith Ellison: Michelle Bachmann believes Muslims are 'evil'

Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-Minn.) is making headlines for her claims that prominent Democrats are affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood. After pointing fingers at Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s aide, Huma Abedin, Bachmann’s then targeted Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn). Ellison has denied Bachmann’s accusations, but is more concerned about how her comments will effect the Muslim community. The Huffington Post reports:

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) laughed off claims by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) that he has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and said she makes such baseless accusations because, deep down, she thinks Muslims are “evil.”

Bachmann was already in hot water this week for saying Huma Abedin, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, may be part of a Muslim Brotherhood conspiracy to infiltrate the U.S. government. Despite being criticized by leaders of her own party, Bachmann on Thursday said Ellison, one of two Muslims in Congress, also has connections to the hard-line Islamic group.

“He has a long record of being associated with [the Council on American–Islamic Relations] and with the Muslim Brotherhood,” Bachmann said during an interview on Glenn Beck’s radio show.
