Groups want Haler to retract statements about Muslim organization
by Geoff Folsom
Several organizations want to hear a Tri-City legislator take back comments he made about the country's largest Muslim advocacy organization.
But state Rep. Larry Haler, R-Richland, said he has already apologized for remarks he made about the Council on American-Islamic Relations at a January House Judiciary Committee meeting.
"We do have a group in this country called CAIR, which is basically run by the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, they are a political entity," Haler said, according to the Seattle Times. "And their goal is to overthrow the country."
