Former Miss USA Rima Fakih was caught acting not very lady-like Saturday. The former Miss Michigan was pulled over in her home state early yesterday morning, where sources tell WXYZ she blew a .20, which is more than twice the legal blood-alcohol content while driving limit in the state.
To make matters worse, she spent her time sitting in jail Saturday writing on her Twitter and Facebook accounts that she was out of the state, and a different Fakih had been arrested for drunk driving. WXYZ reports that those updates have since disappeared:
Debbie Schlussel caught the misleading tweets, and notes that this is not the first controversy that Fakih has attracted:
"Fakih’s lawyer, Doraid Elder, is a Palestinian Muslim who represents Islamic terrorists who raise money for HAMAS and college football players who murder people outside of bars. His brother is Azzam Elder, the recently-fired Deputy Wayne County Executive involved in forging a faked contract to give his fellow Muslim, Turkia Awada Mullin, a $200,000 payment from the County coffers.
Fakih just returned from a trip to Hezbollah-controlled Lebanon, where she was feted and celebrated by her terrorist friends and relatives, many of whom are members and top officials of Hezbollah and Harakat Amal (the Shi’ite Amal Militia), as well as “martyrs,” terrorists who died in terrorist attacks against Israelis. Fakih has gone to Lebanon quite often, since she’s a nobody and a never-has-been here in the States. . . unless you count her recently being honored by the openly pro-HAMAS/pro-Hezbollah, Muslim-dominated American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC), whose Michigan leader,Imad Hamad, was a Palestinian terrorist who committed immigration and marriage fraud. (Hamad raised the money for Fakih’s pageant forays.) Right now, Fakih’s only hope for a “career” is working for WWE or some other similarly sleazy pro wrestling enterprise. And she’s in talks with WWE to do a reality show."
Schlussel caught the Tweet before it was deleted, and linked back to her website, DebbieSchlussel.com, in the Tweet's screen shot.
Fakih's lawyer told the Detroit Free Press that his client is “very saddened and very apologetic for the situation that she is in right now.”
In May 2010, Fakih won the Miss USA Pageant, becoming the first Miss Michigan to win the title since 1993 and the first Arab and Muslim American to win the pageant.
Shortly after winning the competition, a local radio station released photos showing that Fakih had participated in the "Mojo In The Morning" "Stripper 101" contest. While she did not remove her cloths, the photos were indeed racy, and the Miss Universe pageant investigated the matter but allowed her to still compete in their competition, and did not lose her title.
