WHAT? Potential New Democrat Chairman Visited Mecca With Money From The Muslim Brotherhood

Keith Ellison, the Muslim Democrat and possible Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairman seems to already be embroiled in scandal.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

The House Ethics Committee opened an investigation into Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.) after he failed to disclose that a group founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood paid for him to make a pilgrimage to the Islamic holy site of Mecca in Saudi Arabia.

Top Democrats have considered shifting to the left by electing Ellison party chairman, but critics say his previous association with radical groups should disqualify him from the leadership role.

Ellison has associated with the Muslim American Society, a Virginia-based group founded by Muslim Brotherhood members in 1993 to act as the “overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States,” according to federal prosecutors in 2007. The United Arab Emirates recently added the group to a list of terrorist organizations.

So the Democrats may be nominating a person to run the DNC who has personally profited off the Muslim Brotherhood. Where’s the mainstream media outrage?
