Blagojevich stand behind NOI member on Illinois hate crimes commission
"On Wednesday, [Governor Rod] Blagojevich expressed support for Claudette Marie Muhammad, director of community outreach for the Nation of Islam, a black Muslim group led by the Rev. Louis Farrakhan... Muhammad recently invited commission members to attend a Farrakhan speech in which he accused 'Hollywood Jews' of 'promoting lesbianism, homosexuality' and other 'filth.'"
It's all in a day's work for one of the U.S.'s least American governors. Blago is also deeply involved with the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, a powerful group that supports illegal immigration and appears to have conducted a smear campaign against gubanatorial candidate Jim Oberweis.
