Pelosi raised money from Islamists; John Delaney likely benefited from the cash

See the Daily Caller story on Pelosi and her pals holding a secret fundraiser last spring with the Council on American Islamic Relations and Islamists uncovered by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, here.  (Hat tip: Judy)

Democratic leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi headlined a high-dollar fundraiser in May that was attended by U.S.-based Islamist groups and individuals linked by the U.S. government to the Hamas jihad group and to the Egypt-based Muslim Brotherhood movement.

The donors at the undisclosed May 16 event included Nihad Awad, the co-founder of the Council on American Islamic Relations, according to data provided by the nonpartisan Investigative Project on Terrorism.

The CAIR group was named an unindicted conspirator in a 2007 trial of a Hamas money-smuggling group.

One of the hosts was Rep. Keith Ellison who readers may recall said ‘Republicans are in a dark ugly place’ and ‘bigoted’ because of the American Law for American Courts platform plank at the GOP convention here a few months ago.

The Daily Caller continued:

The hosts of the event were DCCC chairman Rep. Steve Israel and two Muslim representatives, Rep. Keith Ellison and Rep. Andre Carson.

Ellison is the DCCC’s “national community outreach chair” and the co-chair of the House progressive caucus.

One of those candidates likely benefiting from the Hamas money is 6th District Democrat John Delaney.

Since the May event, the DCCC has distributed a large amount of money — likely including the Islamists’ funds — to many House candidates who are part of the DCCC’s “Red to Blue” effort, which is trying unseat 55 Republican members of the House.

The list of Red to Blue candidates who got DCCC cash includes Connecticut’s Elizabeth Esty, Iowa’s Christie Vilsack, Maryland’s John Delaney and Florida’s Patrick Murphy.

Read the whole Daily Caller story!

In fairness to Delaney, he probably doesn’t know the source of much of his campaign cash.  However, for those of you thinking we need some new blood in the 6th District one thing is for sure—you couldn’t have a stronger defender of our national security than Roscoe Bartlett or one who understands better than most members of Congress how dangerous our immigration policy is these days then Bartlett.

And, LOL!, remember one important little fact!  If elected Delaney will vote for Pelosi as Speaker of the House, Bartlett never will!
