Rashida Tlaib

Democrats cannot afford any more scandals as the 2020 election heats up.

But the party just got smacked with some really bad news on that front.

And that’s because police just detained Rashida Tlaib. You won’t believe why.

Michigan Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib is one of the members of the self-proclaimed “Squad” that sets the agenda for the Democrat Party.

As one of the faces of the Democrat Party – as well as one of the highest profile supporters of Presidential frontrunner Bernie Sanders – Tlaib helps set the Democrat agenda for 2020.

And it appears that Tlaib wants to focus the Democrat message on one of the most unpopular fights the left can pick – the ability for union bosses to pick the pockets of their members with forced union dues in order to fund left-wing ideological crusades.

Tlaib made it clear paying back Big Labor was tops on her 2020 agenda when police detained Tlaib when she attended a catering workers’ protest at Detroit Metro Airport.

The unionized workers were protesting supposedly “unfair” wages and benefits offered by Delta.

“We won’t stop until we get #fairwages & #healthcare. These courageous people got arrested tonight at DTW b/c they believe workers deserve human dignity. Shame on you @Delta for leaving workers behind and letting them live in poverty,” Tlaib tweeted about the protest.

Tlaib also sent a statement to The Hill defending her actions.

“These workers are suffering and living under unimaginable conditions all because Delta wants to make more profits on the backs of the poor. The airline catering workers are desperate for a better quality of life and put their bodies on the line in their fight against the exorbitant corporate greed by the airlines denying them of their right to a living wage and good healthcare,” Tlaib’s statement read.

Carrying water for Big Labor is a political loser for Democrats.

The 2010 Tea Party wave was inspired in part by the American people’s outrage at the Obama administration putting the priorities of union bosses ahead of what was good for the country.

Democrats tried to ram so-called “card check” legislation – which would eliminate the secret ballot in union elections – as well as legislation to force all police and firefighters under Big Labor’s thumb through Congress.

Polls show a clear majority of Americans reject the Big Labor agenda and oppose forcing workers to pay union dues as a condition of employment.

But Democrats are wedded to union bosses for financial reasons.

Big Labor pumps hundreds of millions of dollars into PACs, nonprofits and Democrat campaign coffers every election cycle.

Unions are by far and away the biggest spenders in all of American politics and Democrats depend on union dues confiscated from workers’ paychecks to fund their political activities.

Donald Trump would love to fight the election on this battlefield.

And Rashida Tlaib appears more than willing to oblige him.
