Leader of new U.S. Muslim party once jailed by Chris Christie
One of the leaders of a new Islamic political party promising to be a "game-changing force" in the 2016 elections was arrested and jailed by former U.S. Attorney Chris Christie, who happens to be a GOP frontrunner in the 2016 race for the White House.
Mazen M. Mokhtar is a founding member of the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations, or USCMO, recently created to marshal together Islamic groups and throw their weight behind U.S. elections while grooming Muslim candidates for office.
Wearing a business suit and eyeglasses, the mild-mannered Mokhtar didn't look or act like a dangerous man when he appeared with other Muslim leaders to launch the USCMO at a Washington press conference earlier this year.
