Tips of Icebergs

Reader comment on item: André Carson, Islamist Choice for the House of Representatives

Submitted by Andrew H. (Canada), Oct 8, 2014 at 10:08

These are piddling amounts. I bet dollars to donuts that meaningful petrodollars over several administrations have reached the inhabitants of the White House. You don't get an arrogant marxist-racist-islamists-in-chief bowing so deeply he nearly tips over to a Saudi king just to be polite. That kind of respect comes from deep gratitude.

Read my article.

Overall, Islamist money is relatively minor in the forthcoming 2014 congressional elections, but IMIP information has several benefits. It holds politicians accountable for accepting funds from a soiled source. It signals the Islamist lobby's affections and intentions. And it tells voters who takes money from individuals linked to enemies of the United States and its allies.
