Where GOP Money Comes From

  • A New York man, Abdul Tawala Ibn Ali Alishtari (a.k.a. Michael Mixon) was charged with terrorism financing, material support of terrorism and money laundering. Why is this important to the 2008 Senate races?

    According to the Associated Press, Abdul Tawala Ibn Ali Alishtari, a self-proclaimed life member of the National Republican Senatorial Committee’s “Inner Circle Leadership Committee” has been indicted on charges of financing a terrorist training camp in Afghanistan. The AP obtained a resume in which Alishtari states that he became an NRSC Inner Circle Life Member in 2003.
    I assume that the NRSC will immediately contribute any money received from Alishtari to an anti-terrorism charity or the Red Cross or something. Right? Hmmm? Any comment, NRSC? We're waiting.
