Terrorist supporter = GOP supporter

Who in hell could have thought that?
A New York man accused of trying to help terrorists in Afghanistan has donated some $15,000 to the House Republicans' campaign committee over three years. Abdul Tawala Ibn Ali Alishtari pleaded not guilty Friday in U.S. District Court in Manhattan to charges that include terrorism financing, material support of terrorism and money laundering. From April 2002 until August 2004, the man also known as "Michael Mixon" gave donations ranging from $500 to $5,000 to the National Republican Congressional Committee, according to Federal Election Commission reports and two campaign donor tracking Web sites, http://www.politicalmoneyline.com and http://www.opensecrets.org.

Thanx to Librocrats for reminding me to post about this. Go to his (I think 'his') site for more info.

Forgive me. My bad for ignoring this story.

You're forgiven, of course. It's one of those stories that if it weren't for the other side, would be a non-story. However, they want to attack us with the imaginary claim that the terrorists want them to win, we actually have factual ammo to bring the same claim against them. It should be a bigger deal in the news, but it hasn't been.
