Gary Boisclair's Anti-Islam Campaign Ad

Congressional candidate Gary Boisclair attacks Rep. Keith Ellison in his new Islamophobic campaign ad. As the first Muslim elected to the US Congress in 2007, Ellison is no stranger to religious discrimination.

Boisclair's ad directly conflicts with the "No Religious Test Clause" of the US Consitution, Article VI, paragraph which states:

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.
