Lacy Johnson, Rep. Ilhan Omar’s Republican opponent vying for Minnesota’s fifth district’s congressional seat, posted a thread on Twitter Sunday night in response to the Minneapolis City Council’s move to proceed with voting to disband the police in response to the death of George Floyd. Omar, who is backing the move, is an ’embarrassment,’ Johnson said.

The City Council has garnered a veto-proof majority of members’ support for the action.

The following is Johnson’s Twitter thread:

Omar recently told constituents that she’s backing the move, calling the MPD “rotten to the root” and a “cancer” that must be removed. The City’s Mayor Jacob Frey, however, couldn’t commit to such a sweeping overhaul.

Johnson has received President Donald Trump’s endorsement for the race. The Minnesota state primary is set for August 11, 2020.

Oklahoma passes bill banning majority of abortions from ‘moment of fertilization’

Oklahoma’s Republican Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law on Wednesday which bans virtually all abortions “from the moment of fertilization.”

“I promised Oklahomans that as governor I would sign every piece of pro-life legislation that came across my desk and I am proud to keep that promise today. From the moment life begins at conception is when we have a responsibility as human beings to do everything we can to protect that baby’s life and the life of the mother,” Stitt said in a statement. “That is what I believe and that is what the majority of Oklahomans believe.”

The state legislature first approved the bill, which goes into effect immediately, last week. It bans abortions from the moment of fertilization, except for in cases where rape or incest occurred, or where the mother’s life is in danger.

The law also allows for private citizens to sue doctors or those who participate in “producing an abortion for up to $10,000, mimicking the enforcement mechanism in Texas’s fetal heartbeat law” reports National Review.

Under the new law it is a felony offense to perform an abortion, “which will take effect in August unless a court challenge blocks it.”
