Don’t Forget About Cooch, Safa Group, and Faisal Gill
The voters in November sure won’t.
My final thought on the flawed candidacy of Ken Cuccinelli for ATTORNEY GENERAL of Virginia.
The Safa Group is a close knit group of businesses that were raided several times by federal agents, producing evidence that led to the prosecution of several terrorists (just Google “Safa Group” to see what I’m talking about if you’re unfamiliar). They were big political donors on the national, state and local scene. Cuccinelli was the number two receiver of Safa funds in Virginia, behind his good pal, fellow whack-job Dick Black, who introduced him to these people. Both professed their devotion to these radicals in this WaPo article. George W. Bush, Hillary Cllinton, and even ethically challenged Jim Moran returned their Safa Group donations after disturbing information came out. But not Cuccinelli. In fact he just received money again from them last reporting period.
And don’t forget the ridiculous Faisal Gill fiasco of 2007, when he bussed in scores of non-English speaking Pakistanis to win a horribly flawed convention from Julie Lucas. Gill had a long history of strange alliances, including working for a convicted terrorist currently in federal prison for trying to provide money for a hit named Abdurahman Alamoudi. BVBL discussed the Faisal Gill affair here, and the aftermath of that convention here. BVBL has a wealth of information on Gill, as does Google. Cuccinelli was a HUGE Gill supporter, and is even mentioned in Gill’s Wikipedia entry. Horrible judgment for someone who expects to be Attorney General.
Let the chants of racism begin! I have absolutely nothing against law abiding mainstream Muslims, but I would never want to be a candidate running for Attorney General with these types of connections. No thanks. if you don’t think the Dems will use this stuff to good effect, you’re simply out of your mind.
Anybody But Cuccinelli.
