Dem Rep Has Painting of Statue of Liberty in a Hijab Hanging in His Office
What the . . . ?!
Rep. J. Luis Correa (D-CA) has come under fire for a painting hanging in his California office that shows the Statue of Liberty wearing a hijab, a head covering often worn by Muslim women.
Local activist group We the People Rising has attacked the painting - which was created by a high school student as part of the Congressional Art Competition - as an unpatriotic violation of the separation of church and state.
Mike McGetrick, an activist with the group, called the painting "perplexing" and "disturbing" in a letter to Correa asking him to take it down, the Washington Post reported.
