Muslim Congressman Ellison: Hearing On Radical Islam Is "Scary"
"Well, it's a disturbing use of a Congressional hearing. I mean, there's awesome power associated with being Chairman of the Committee, being able to investigate and do oversight and to use it to essentially go after a religious minority group, I think it is a scary proposition. I would submit to all Americans that look, could be Muslims today, could be others tomorrow. This is a very bad precedent, and I have actually gone to Congressman King and asked him to broaden the scope of the hearings. He has so far declined," Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) tells MSNBC.
