Lawmaker will apologize for Muslim prayer walkout
Washington State Representative Lois McMahan will apologize on the state House floor today for comments she made about her decision to walkout during a prayer delivered Monday by a Muslim. McMahan, a Republican, says did not mean to offend anyone when she explained to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer newspaper that she made a personal decision for "patriotic" reasons to remain off the floor during the prayer.
Yesterday, CAIR called on state and national Republican leaders to condemn the walkout and to offer an apology to Washington Muslims.
