Can you believe that Governor Kaine didn’t know about this when he appointed this guy to the Virginia Commission on Immigration? This stuff is littered all over the internet!
I think this guy is praising Hamas in this video. Unbelievable.
UPDATE: Kaine’s spokesman Kevin Hall had this to say earlier about this flap, before Kaine apparently asked Omeish to resign in a pretty abruptly executed about-face:
Kaine spokesman Kevin Hall said Gilbert’s concerns were nothing but repeated “whispers and smears.”
If the Muslim American Society has any connections with the Muslim Brotherhood, “I haven’t found any direct evidence of it,” Hall said. “It’s been hinted at, whispered, smeared, but that’s just one of those conspiracy theories out there.”
Hall said Kaine had nothing for which to apologize.
“That these delegates would spread innuendo, moving dangerously close to slander, is disappointing,” he said. “If they have evidence of what they’re alleging, I would suggest that they bring it to us.”
I wonder if Kevin Hall is happy about having the blogosphere comply with his request as it has. The language in this briefly defiant stand is well, vaguely familiar. About the only thing Hall left out was a cheap shot at calling everyone who was expressing concern here a racist or something.
