Florida police officer has been suspended for liking Facebook posts in support of his wife after she said Rashida Tlaib may 'blow up Capitol Hill'.

Hallandale Beach Commissioner Anabelle Lima-Taub came under fire in January last year after comments about the Democrat and first Palestinian-American woman to be elected to Congress, in which she said Tlaib could 'become a martyr'. 

Now her husband, veteran cop Pablo Lima, has been placed on administrative leave after liking a number of comments on social media which backed Lima-Taub. 

One of those he liked read: 'This piece of s***  took her oath on the Koran.'

...

Lima-Taub faced calls to resign in January last year after writing: 'She is a danger and (I) would not put it past her to become a martyr and blow up Capitol Hill.'

The Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations told NBC Miami at the time: 'Holding a public office comes with great responsibilities. Xenophobic stereotypes shall not be embraced by any elected official. 

'Her un-American, xenophobic statements establish that she is unfit to hold the Commissioner’s seat.'
