Pro-Obama Muslim-led voter registration in mosques!

Posted on 07 October 2008

From OneNewsNow.com – A leading critic of Islam isn’t surprised there has been virtually no coverage or action taken against a Muslim group that has been running an illegal ‘get out the vote’ campaign in swing-state mosques.

The group, Muslim Americans for Obama [MAFO], insists that all of its voter registration activity is non-partisan, despite the fact that its mission statement says it was launched in August 2008 "to provide a vehicle for Muslim-American supporters of Barack Obama to organize and mobilize our fellow citizens to get out the vote to elect Barack Obama the next president of the United States."

Continuing, the group’s website states: ‘Although there is only a short period of time until the election…, there is much work to be done for supporters of Barack Obama’s candidacy. [MAFO] was formed to offer a vehicle for Muslim-Americans to mobilize quickly and effectively so that our community turns out in great numbers for Barack Obama on Election Day.’

The ‘get out the vote’ events are scheduled at mosques in Michigan, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Virginia, and Ohio.

Robert Spencer is director of Jihad Watch , a project of the David Horowitz Freedom Center. He argues MAFO may be skirting the law.

‘When they are running these voter registration drives at mosques, really it’s essentially illegal because they are clearly trying to get people to vote for Obama — and that’s in violation of their tax-exempt status,’ Spencer charges. ‘So this is a group that is crossing the line and ought to be disciplined as such.’

The Jihad Watch leader, however, figures that is not likely to happen. ‘…I kind of doubt that they will be [disciplined], given the politically correct atmosphere nowadays,’ he says. ‘I wouldn’t be the least surprised if no action is taken against them.’

Spencer contends that if a group called ‘Christians for John McCain’ claimed to be non-partisan and ran a registration drive in churches, it would be all over the media and create a huge scandal and embarrassment for the McCain campaign.
