PA Gov. Tom Wolf “horrified” that Rep (R) prayed to Jesus before Rep (D) was sworn in on Quran at Statehouse in Harrisburg
There was no backlash when State Rep. Jason Dawkins, a Muslim lawmaker, opened Tuesday’s legislative session by unexpectedly reading from the Quran. But it was State Rep. Stephanie Borowicz who was accused of bigotry after she invoked the name of Jesus on Monday, just before the Legislature’s first Muslim woman, Rep. Johnson-Harrell, was sworn in on the Quran at the Statehouse in Harrisburg.
PA Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf was outraged, later saying, “I was horrified,” and issued an apology to Rep. Movita Johnson-Harrell.
Johnson-Harrell, the Muslim lawmaker, accused Borowicz of using her religion against her.
