A huge part of the controversy over the ground zero mosque and the Imam leading the effort - Feisal Abdul Rauf - has to do with where the funding is coming from. As this story continues to get legs, the Democratic Senatorial candidate for Obama's old seat may have to answer for some similarly disturbing sources.

Via Weekly Standard:
The timing of all of this couldn’t be worse for Illinois Senate candidate Alexi Giannoulias who faces questions of his own regarding who is funding his campaign. Take Mohammed Sahloul for example, who contributed $1,000 to the Giannoulias campaign on June 22.

Sahloul is the former president of the Mosque Foundation, a Bridgeview mosque that has numerous links to terrorist organizations. The Mosque Foundation contributed roughly $400,000 to four Islamic charities that were later shut down by the federal government for links to terrorism. According to the Chicago Tribune, the organizations receiving funds were: the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, the Benevolence International Foundation, the Islamic American Relief Agency, and Global Relief Foundation.
So in addition to some very questionable dealings between Alexi's bank and Tony Rezko, it appears he's taken money from Islamic groups tied to terrorism. Kinda makes Alvin Greene look better, doesn't it?
