A newly elected Tea Party trustee at Keller ISD apologized for calling it a "shame" that Southlake elected a Muslim member to its City Council.

Jo Lynn Haussmann posted on Facebook: "SOUTH LAKE - Do you realize because SO FEW voters took the time and responsibility to VOTE in the municipal elections - YOU NOW HAVE A 'MUSLIM' on the City Council!!! What A SHAME!!!!!"

Haussmann who herself only got 50.5% of the vote was endorsed by the right wing group Texans for Fiscal Responsibility who said, "She is well respected by state legislators and other local leaders."  

That list of legislators include Giovanni Capriglione, who gave himself some credit for recruiting her also said that the, "opposition ranges from someone who isn't even registered to vote, to a progressive liberal whose public comments are too deranged to even post." Yep. take a moment to let that sink in.

Now see who else endorsed Haussmann and what the School Board has to say below the jump...
