TalkingPointsMemo today describes the confrontation between Myrick and her Muslim constituents over her wacky investigation of “intern spies” and her endorsement of a WorldNetDaily book called Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld that’s Conspiring to Islamize America. Myrick wrote the forward to the book.
Her constituents noted that the author of the book, David Gaubatz, has said that Islam is a “terminal disease that once spread is hard to destroy”. Myrick now claims that she disagrees with that statement and that Gaubatz didn’t write a word of the Muslim Mafia book.
That seems to contradict what she wrote in her forward: “Former federal investigator and co-author P. David Gaubatz, meanwhile, is a great American who deserves all our gratitude for his heroic service to our country.”
So is Gaubatz a co-author or not? And while Myrick may disagree with his characterization of Islam she is clearly not offended enough to denounce him. Quite the contrary, she thinks he is a great American.
