CAIR Stealth Candidate for Sacramento School Board - Basim Elkarra - Gets His Ass Kicked In Election
May 13, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – Professional Islamist Basim Elkarra, Exec. Director of Sacramento CAIR, was trounced in yesterday's Sacramento, CA, Twin Rivers School Board race.
Pulling barely over 40% of the vote, it wasn't even close. This despite a relatively huge war-chest funded by Sacto's top Marxist legislators and the local media's.fawning coverage of his campaign.
As this writer noted in an April 29 piece, referencing a mysterious flyer directed at Mr. Elkarra's candidacy:
"There seems to be a bit of controversy surrounding Basim Elkarra's run for the Sacramento area's Twin Rivers School Board. Knowing Elkarra's MO, we find it unsurprising that something of this nature might surface in such close proximity to the election….Regarding the flyer, we find it oddly coincidental that a document of this nature would simply materialize knowing the predictably knee-jerk reaction with which the Sacramento press would respond – outrage, allegations of bigotry, Islamophobia etc., all of which tend to cast Mr. Elkarra in the role of victim." [source, William Mayer, Basim Elkarra, CAIR Sacramento Director, Runs For Twin Rivers School Board , PipeLineNews.org]
Elkarra has a history of making unsubstantiated claims regarding bigotry he has allegedly suffered, below from a 2007 dust-up.
CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator/joint venturer is U.S. v. Holy Land Foundation for Foundation and Development [a fraudulent Muslim charity] the nation's largest and most successful prosecution of HAMAS' domestic funding operation.
In judicial proceeding following the HLF case, CAIR was specifically linked to Hamas by Federal judge Jorge Solis. "'The government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA, NAIT, with NAIT, the Islamic Association for Palestine, and with Hamas," U.S. District Court Judge Jorge Solis said in the July 1, 2009, ruling'" [source, The Investigative Project, Federal Judge Agrees: CAIR Tied to Hamas]
Though having taken no official position on the race, we nonetheless applaud the voters of the Twin Rivers School District for having seen through Elkarra's victimhood charade, now if only a bit of that wisdom would rub-off on Sacramento's legacy media…
