Jamaal Bowman (born April 1, 1976) is an American politician who is serving as the U.S. representative for New York's 16th congressional district since 2021. He defeated 16 term Establishment Democrat Elliot Engel in the congressional primary election.
Bowman unleashed a racist attack on fellow Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia when Manchin voted against Joe Biden's massively inflationary Build Back Better bill. Bowman falsely called Musk a white supremacist for voting to Republican candidate, and pretend that Musk is anti Democracy.
Bowman was confronted at a public event over his support for Ukrainian neo-Nazis during the 2022 Midterm elections and had no explanation other than vowing to continue funding.
While not an Establishment candidate like Engel, Bowman is undoubtedly the more radical of the two. Bowman along with Cori Bush joined the Squad which consists of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley.
