Mohammed running for GOP state senate seat in Tennessee

via Newsletter #123 – Tennessee Council 4 political justice
Mwafaq Aljabbary (aka Mwafaq Mohammed), identifies himself as a Republican who is running for the District 21 Senate seat vacated by Democrat Douglas Henry who has retired but held that seat since 1971.
During a May candidate forum, Aljabbary revealed that he is running his campaign under his real name.
Does that mean that he legally changed his name from the one he used to purchase his home which is the address he used on his qualifying petition?
Which name does he uses for his job with the TN Department of Transportation?
(link added)
 Which name did he use to qualify to be a candidate?
Which name does he use on his voter ID? Does he have a voter ID card for each name?
When he runs for a GOP Senate position he says he is Mwafaq Aljabbarry.
 When he criticizes the Speaker of the Senate, Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey for his comments about concerns for radical Islam, he says he is Mwafaq Mohammed.
During the same May candidate forum, Mwafaq Aljabbary said that if elected, he would vote to repeal Common Core, Haslam’s cornerstone of education reform.
How will Mwafaq Mohammed vote on a Common Core repeal?
Any chance Gov. Haslam will get around to stumping for incumbent Republicans who also openly opposed Common Core during the last legislative session?
