Congressman Joe Sestak's name on CAIR banquet poster belies fundraiser announcement -Group removes staffer info from website
March 7, 2007
MIM: Congressman Joe Sestak's story that 'he informed CAIR he wouldn't have any part of that [fundraising]' while acknowledging yesterday that he still plans to speak at their event explains why only his name is now on their event poster. The other three speakers were listed on a seperate 'fundraiser' announcement. CAIR also removed information about staffer Adeeba Al Zaman's new position as Congressional staffer for Sestak from their website. It appears that Sestak attempted a crude deception by agreeing to have his name on the 'banquet' poster on the condition that it wasnt used on the fundraising announcement .
CAIR posted their "Fundraiser Event" notice with the names of the three speakers who had been removed from the banquet poster minus that of Sestaks forty eight hours ago. A link from the fundraiser announcement to the CAIR Philly 'for more information' about the event goes directly to the 'banquet' poster with Sestak's name.Obviously one of the biggest fundraising draws will be the presence of Sestak -so his lame pretence that 'he has told CAIR he "wouldnt have any part of [the fundraiser] is the equivalent of a fertility clinic doctor telling a female patient she is almost pregnant.It also reveals that Sestak does not hold the intelligence of his constituents or the American public in high regard.
MIM: This poster on the CAIR Philly website originally had four names besides Sestak's. They were removed when media inquiries were made to his Philadelphia office protesting his appearence at the CAIR fundraiser. Forty eight hours ago a notice on a Muslims events website listed the fundraiser with the names which had been removed from the original poster without Sestak's. Conclusion: Sestak isnt listed on the fundraiser announcement so he can claim that he is only speaking at the banquet!
MIM: The lastest altered posters on the CAIR Philly website.The poster with Joe Sestak's name now appears next to a poster with the 3 speakers names with the word fundraiser. Only problem is that CAIR's other posters for the "American Muslims Connecting and Sharing" events are all listed as "banquet/fundraiser".
Note that the text for this poster reads " Annual Fundraising Banquet"http://www.cair-california.org/banquet/flyer-sc.jpg
MIM: Below the posting about Adeeba Al -Zaman on the CAIR Philly site which was changed after the articles came out about her being a Congressional staffer in Congressman Joe Sestak's office.
The posting below had been placed about a month previously and is still accessible in cache.
As of this writing no word on whether Al-Zaman is still a staffer but this obvious attempt to hide the information shows that bragging about the legal Islamist victory of having one of their staffers go from CAIR to Congress backfired.http://www.cairphilly.org/index.php?Page=staff-adeeba&Side=about
