Talk about your war on women, right, Rep. Ellison?
From The Washington Free Beacon:
The four sons of a Saudi Arabian billionaire—including one who was recently convicted for assaulting his wife—have all contributed thousands to Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.), who is one of the frontrunners to become the new chairman of the Democratic National Committee.
The family of Nasser Al-Rashid, an adviser to the Saudi royal family who has been listedas one of the world’s wealthiest men, came under increased scrutiny in the past year due to political spending in the United States. Al-Rashid himself has given millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation and his children have poured nearly $600,000 into campaigns for Democrats across the country.
The donations became a problem after Ibrahim Al-Rashid, who was a close friend and major donor to Florida Democrat Patrick Murphy, was convicted on charges stemming from an incident in which he broke into his estranged wife’s home and brutally assaulted her, according to a police reportpreviously published by the Washington Free Beacon.
Some Democrats such as Murphy and Sen. Harry Reid (D., Nev.), whose Super PAC had received $100,000 from Al-Rashid, returned the money, but contribution records show that Ellison, who was the first Democrat to receive money from Al-Rashid, has made no such move.
Whoa! And this guy is the leading candidate to succeed Debbie WTF Schulz as the head of the Democrat Party? How perfect is that?
Why do you think that the Democrats seem to have learned NOTHING from last month’s election? Please let me know below in the comments.
