Ex-lawmaker charged as terrorist conspirator

WASHINGTON - A former U.S. congressman and delegate to the United Nations was indicted Wednesday, accused of being part of a terrorist fundraising ring that allegedly sent more than $130,000 to an al-Qaida and Taliban supporter who has threatened U.S. and international troops in Afghanistan.

The former Republican congressman from Michigan, Mark Deli Siljander [R], was charged with money laundering, conspiracy and obstructing justice for allegedly lying about lobbying senators on behalf of an Islamic charity that authorities said was secretly sending funds to terrorists.

Maybe it's good we have lax fundraising laws in Utah. If we actually had ethical laws most of our Republican leaders would be in jail.

Look, Curtis has $300,000.00 at his disposal. $300,000.00! For a twenty thousand dollar community service job.

What a joke!
