New Indian SuperPAC jumps into Duckworth-Walsh race
by Kerry Lester and Eric Peterson
The formation of a new Indian American SuperPAC supporting Congressman Joe Walsh's campaign illustrates the political division within the Asian community in the 8th Congressional District.
Indian Americans for Freedom, a group founded by Carol Stream businessman Shalli Kumar in August, is airing ads on cable television and in several newspapers questioning Hoffman Estates Democrat Tammy Duckworth's support of the Council on American Islamic Relations.
The council's Chicago chapter, in turn, has ripped Walsh for statements he made over the summer suggesting "radical Islam" is a threat in suburbs including Elgin, Addison and Elk Grove Village.
