Dont they understand what being American means? A Texas county GOP's faction seeks to remove 'unsuitable' Muslim vice chair Tarrant county Republicans in Texas will vote Thursday on an effort by a faction to remove their vice chairman, Shahid Shafi, because he's Muslim. Fort Worth is the largest city in Tarrant county. The campaign against Shafi, a trauma surgeon and member of the Southlake City Council, was mounted by a small group of Republicans led by Dorrie O'Brien, a precinct chairman from Grand Prairie. O’Brien writes on Facebook that she “never doubted” her side has the votes to remove Shafi from his post.” “We don’t think he’s suitable as a practicing Muslim to be vice chair because he’d be the representative for ALL Republicans in Tarrant County, and not ALL Republicans in Tarrant County think Islam is safe or acceptable.
