The Resume

    (July 24, 1976- )
    Born in Detroit, Michigan
    Birth name was Rashida Harbi
    First-generation Palestine-American (oldest of 14 children)
    Bachelor of Arts in Political Science at Wayne State University
    Juris Doctor, WMU Cooley Law School (2004)
    United States House of Representatives (13th Congressional District of Michigan)

Why she might be annoying:

    Tah-LEEB (she kept the name after her divorce).
    Don’t be fooled by her goofy little grin; she has one hell of a potty mouth.
    Perhaps not surprisingly, she routinely calls for President Trump’s head (which goes back before he became President).
    She regards Rosa Parks as an inspiration. (Doubtful Parks ever said, ‘you guys are crazy!’)
    Whether or not influenced by her parents’ birth locations, she admitted to knowing not a single syllable of English when she began school.

Why she might not be annoying:

    Since her working class parents sometimes had to rely on welfare, she came by her socialist convictions honestly.
    She shares the honor of being the first West Bank-American to be elected to the Michigan legislature with a Republican.
    She speaks out on low wages, particularly for tipped employees (restaurant servers).
    On the municipal level, she worked on laws dealing with mortgage and tax scams and scrap metal looting.
    Married about 17 years, she would go on to have two children.
