Guys, I am not defending this guy's actions,in fact I deplore it. But this guy was not in actual office working for a constituency in Michigan like the OP says and points out. in fact he was doing it as a private citizen albeit a dumb idiotic move IMHO. I mean Hakeem Aloujuwon was accused of giving money to a Muslim charity that had supposedly terror links or accused terror links. Plus Islamic charities are hard to track in terms of where the money goes. I heard this information from a very informed military man. They are hard to track. Its like the mob and its money laundering process. it goes from person to person that where it ends up it either comes out dirty or clean as an any legitimate enterprise.
