The Council on American Islamic Relations is a nonprofit, non—partisan group. So it must be purely a coincidence that it is to begin airing television spots in Minnesota affirming that most Muslims are against terrorism during a Monday night Minnesota Vikings game. Keith Ellison, a Black Muslim of the Farrakhan variety is running for Congress in the Fifth District in Minneapolis.
If CAIR were found to be engaging in partisan politics, it would jeopardize its tax—exempt status. I just wonder why the ads are running only in Minnesota if there is no intent to influence an election?
