Politics: A followup to this post. Maxine Waters/Najee Ali feud goes on.
|Earlier this week, longtime community activist Najee Ali got a Superior Court judge to issue a temporary restraining order against Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Los Angeles), accusing the congresswoman of threatening him.
Then Waters, not to be outdone, accused Ali of stalking her. And on Thursday, she got the court to issue a temporary restraining order against him.
The dueling orders are the latest chapter in a feud that both sides agree goes back several years. Ali, executive director of Project Islamic Hope, says he traces the hostilities to the 2001 mayoral race, when Ali backed Antonio Villaraigosa and Waters supported James K. Hahn.
