Congressional Candidates Receive Money from Islamists
by Ryan Mauro
The Islamist Money in Politics project has identified 11 candidates -- two Republicans and nine Democrats -- who received campaign donations this year from Islamists.
The project concludes that prominent Islamists have given at least $700,000 to federal candidates over the past 15 years, including $85,451 to presidential campaigns.
The figures are probably only a shadow of the true numbers, as the first-of-its-kind project does not yet include state-level campaigns like governorships. It also does not include every Islamist or Islamist organization that has donated.
