Pakistani Muslim buying politicians from both sides of the aisle

Which takes some of the excitement from Christie's going to Iowa, since he's beholdin' to his own Muslims. And where were the reports of Obama's selling himself during the election?

If a politician's got political, financial, or familial ties to Muslims, and he doesn't explicitly condemn Islam, jihad, and shari'a, then you can't trust him.

This is only the tip of the iceberg. NRSC, Obama donor arrested as Pakistan agent:
Law enforcement sources say the FBI has arrested an agent of Pakistan's official state intelligence service, accusing him of making thousands of dollars in political contributions in the United States without disclosing his connections to the Pakistani government.

Syed Ghulam Fai will appear in federal court this afternoon in Alexandria, Va. He's not charged with being a spy. But he is charged with being an unregistered agent or lobbyist of the Pakistani government.

He's the exective director of a group called the Kashmiri American Council. ...

Fai's largest contribution, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, was to the National Republican Senatorial Committee, to which he gave $5,000 in 2006 and $1,000 in 2008. He gave smaller sums more recently to the DSCC and the DNC, and has given $5,000 to Rep. Dan Burton (R-Ind.), $250 to Barack Obama and $500 Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-N.Y.).

UPDATE: Brian Walsh, NRSC Communications Director, emails: “This pre-dates the current leadership at the NRSC but nonetheless it’s very disturbing and we’re happy to cooperate with any of the appropriate authorities investigating this matter."
