The New York Times reported that Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) pulled out of an interview when told he would be asked questions about Louis Farrakhan.
Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) has consolidated support from all corners of the Democratic Party in his bid to be the next DNC chair.
Several weeks into his campaign, though, and he still won’t answer tough questions about his past ties to the Nation of Islam.
Buried in a New York Times story about the Democrats’ leadership fight:
Aides to Mr. Ellison were going to make him available for a telephone interview, but then declined when informed that he would be asked about his past comments on Mr. Farrakhan. They emailed a list of his links to the Jewish community and a statement that said, “Democrats need an organizer who will energize the grass-roots across this country to build the party from the bottom up.”
On Monday, the Washington Free Beacon reported that Rep. Ellison “failed to disclose” to Congress that a group with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood funded his pilgrimage to Mecca in 2008.
