Yesterday I was proud to join with @RepJayapal (left) and @aijenpoo to discuss the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights, which we will introduce to guarantee domestic workers the dignity, benefits, and legal protections they deserve. From U.S. Senate Office of Kamala Harris. Via Wikimedia Commons.

Rep. Mramila Jayapal (D-WA) was forced to delete a tweet that mourned the deaths of 9/11 victims as well as the terrorist attackers who carried out the largest terrorist attack in our nation’s history.

Mediaite reports:

Jayapal marked the anniversary of the attack in a now-deleted tweet where she said “Today we remember the 2,996 people who were killed on 9/11 and all those who lost their lives while serving our country in the forever wars that followed.”

Interestingly, this is not the first time Jayapal’s account posted this; it was cloned from an identical tweet she sent out last year.

Jayapal has yet to publicly explain why her tweet from this year was deleted, though it may have something to do with the fact that her mention of the 2,996 people dead combines the 2,977 victims with the 19 al-Qaeda terrorists who carried out the attack. Conservative political observers voiced their disapproval.
