Supervisor Marty Nohe provided some commentary recently to the DC Examiner lately about CASA de Maryland venturing into political operations, offering only a mild commentary that political contributions by this organization that works to subvert federal law and support illegal aliens with taxpayer dollars should disclose their donations. Funny how all he has to say that an entity engaged in the blatant disregard of the law should comply with campaign finance reform and tax laws. Here was an opportunity to call out one of the most egregious supporters of illegal immigration, and all Marty has to say is they should incongruously follow the law in regards to their new political activities.
CASA de Maryland operates five day labor sites in Maryland and make no bones about how they support “undocumented immigrants.” These operations along with their pretty lavish “community centers” rake in millions of taxpayer dollars from Maryland and the federal government which CASA uses to support and abet the unlawful presence of illegal aliens, which is a federal felony. Troubled by a disturbing level of gang violence, Montgomery County, MD by official edict doesn’t even report illegal aliens they arrest to federal authorities as federal law requires, but funds hangouts and employment centers for MS-13 gang-bangers and other illegal aliens through CASA.
Not content with simply subverting law, now they want to subvert what’s left of the political process there with a new political organization in our neighbor to the north, and all Marty Nohe has to say is this:
“They need to be transparent about how they raise their money,” said Prince William County Supervisor Marty Nohe, R-Coles. “It’d be hard to know for sure they aren’t raising money from illegitimate sources.”
How mild can one get? It’ll be hard to know for sure whether the money CASA in Action spends to support or defeat candidates for office aren’t being funded by the Sinaloa Drug Cartel? You’d think with the astonishing level of corruption already evident in Maryland politics Marty Nohe could at least express “concern” or perhaps “disappointment” that an organization founded for the purpose of subverting our laws by demanding drivers licenses for illegal aliens, an end to all enforcement of our immigration laws, and public funding for efforts to find jobs for illegal aliens who aren’t legally permitted to work in the United States is working to elect political candidates.
When one considers that Marty Nohe has lent support to people trying to overturn the Rule of Law in Prince William County and did yeoman’s work to protect the ‘right’ of illegal aliens to obtain business licenses in Prince William County, perhaps such tepid concern isn’t much of a surprise. It’s still disappointing, though. He does have an election starting to loom on the horizon, and I doubt the illegal alien vote is going to be all that substantial in 2011. Usually politicians are a little smarter than this.
If you raise money even from legitimate sources but use those funds to support a criminal enterprise, wouldn’t the concern really be about the criminal enterprise, Marty? Nice dodge of the real issue to shift focus to the minutae. I suppose taxpayer dollars being used to fund campaigns that promote felonious behavior is okay, but if a criminal enterprise doesn’t report where they’re getting their funding from, that’s a problem.
Sheesh. Coles could seriously use an upgrade in their political representation.
