Thank You Rep. Frank Wolf....Asks For IRS Probe Into CAIR Donations

After living in the districts of the retiring anti-Semite and US military hater Lynn Woolsey, and (briefly) Jim Moron, it's refreshing to live in a district with a US Representative who has their head screwed on straight, such as Virginia's Rep. Frank Wolf.

After the IRS has stripped the Hamas-linked CAIR of their 501(c)3 status, Wolf has now asked the IRS to begin an investigation to donations to CAIR (Fox News).
(Wolf) in a letter to IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman, requested an investigation into whether the group "may have violated U.S. law in soliciting or accepting money from foreign governments or agents" during the period when CAIR "failed" to file required forms to the IRS.

It's unclear exactly what CAIR failed to file. The group was included earlier this month on a list of 275,000 organizations that the IRS said were losing tax-exempt status because they did not file annual reports for three consecutive years as required by law.

Reached for comment last week, CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper described the matter as a "technical paperwork issue" and said CAIR was trying to sort it out with the IRS.

Hooper told FoxNews.com that the organization's accountant says CAIR "filed promptly in the last several years." He said the status problem stems from "questions" over filings dating back to 2006 or 2007.

"We'll be doing whatever's necessary ... to rectify the situation," Hooper said.

But Wolf cited concern about the possibility of CAIR improperly seeking foreign donations. His request to Shulman cited a purported letter from CAIR Director Nihad Awad to Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafi in 2009 asking for his support in launching a "Muslim Peace Foundation" -- that letter would have been sent long before Qaddafi launched attacks on his own people, triggering a NATO-led military campaign to protect civilians. CAIR officials have since come out against Qaddafi.

Wolf also claimed to have "information" indicating CAIR representatives "may have" traveled to Sudan to seek donations from President Omar Bashir.

"I am concerned that Awad and CAIR may be soliciting -- and receiving -- funds from other unsavory foreign governments and organizations, including some that may be sponsors of terror," Wolf wrote.

Of course, CAIR has been the main Muslim-grievance organization who intimidates anyone as "Islamophobic" who dares to question about radical Islam. CAIR was also named as an "unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial.

I have mixed feelings about Wolf. Every so often he does something wonderful. But most of the time he is just non existent.

Of course I would take him over Connelly, who sadly, is mine.
