Multicultural Relations Turn Sour in Ohio
by Kevin Koeninger
A Muslim "multicultural relations officer" for Ohio's Office of Homeland Security claims in court that Internet bloggers defamed him and cost him his job by posting that he was an "Islamist mole" who sympathized with terrorists.
Omar Alomari sued the City of Columbus, Todd Alan Sheets, Stephen Coughlin, John Guandolo, Patrick Poole and a John Doe known on the Internet as "Rusty Shackleford," in Franklin County Court of Common Pleas.
Alomari was hired as a full-time multicultural relations officer in 2006 by the Office of Homeland Security (OHS), and was in charge of building relationships between the state agency and the Muslim community.
