Herman Cain claims Ellison supports Sharia law
by Andy Birkey
Potential presidential contender Herman Cain told conservative radio host Laura Ingraham that he wouldn't allow Muslims to serve in his administration and that, because Rep. Keith Ellison took his oath of office on the Qur'an instead of the Bible, he supports Sharia law above the Constitution. Cain, a Republican, said that American law is based on the Bible.
"I want people in my administration that are committed to the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States," said Cain. "I don't want any inkling of anybody in my administration who would put Sharia law over American law. I have not found a Muslim that has said that they will denounce Sharia law, you know, in order to support the Constitution of the United States."
