Rashida Tlaib’s Ex-Husband is Related to Her Mother
A freshman member of Congress and one of the first Muslims elected to the House of Representatives married a relative.
According to a November Haaretz report, the father of Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), Harbi Elabed, married her mother Faiza Tlaib in the mid-1970’s before the couple moved from Palestinian-occupied territory to live in the United States permanently.
Rashida Tlaib has the same married name as her mother’s maiden name. It has been confirmed that Rashida’s ex-husband, Fayez Tlaib, is related to her mother, which explains the shared last name.
Tlaib’s mother reportedly visits her relatives in the village of Beit Ur al-Fauqa regularly, though Tlaib herself has not been there since 2006.
The freshman member of Congress has been riddled with scandal since her election in November. She infamously declared after winning her race that she was headed to Washington, D.C., to “impeach the motherf*****,” referring to President Donald J. Trump.
She has also been plagued by a residency scandal, and stands accused of lying about her address in order to run for office. Big League Politics exclusively reported:
Michigan Democrat congresswoman Rashida Tlaib registered to vote from a false address, and represented a state House district that she did not actually live in, according to credit score and property records obtained by Big League Politics.
Tlaib’s own father even said that Tlaib “lied” about her address in order to run for office.
Here is what the evidence, presented below, proves:
- Rashida Tlaib registered to vote at a false address as she embarked on her first political campaign. “Registering to vote using a false address” is one of a number of crimes that fall into the voter fraud category.
- Tlaib ran for and represented the 12th district in the Michigan House of Representatives even though she was not a resident of that district.
- Records show that Tlaib was an “Absentee Owner” at the Detroit house she claimed to live in.
- Tlaib moved to her official Detroit apartment address, which she reported to the FEC after the election, at the start of her 2018 campaign. Her new address was recorded for the first time one day before she announced her campaign for Congress.
State senator Jon Bumstead of Michigan told Big League Politics through an intermediary that Michigan state representatives are required by law to live in the district they represent.
Michigan Election Law requires candidates to submit an Affidavit of Identity, where they must provide truthful residence information.
