Pelosi's Puppet POLITICO Hot On the Money Trail of ………………..

8.29.10 – Ken Vogel of Politico is hot on my trail to track the funding of AFDI (American Freedom Defense Initiative) and SIOA (Stop the Islamization of America), the fledgling organization I founded operating on a shoe string (and a wing and a prayer), orchestrating various campaigns with my colleague Robert Spencer (bus ads, rallies).
