For over six years, Tamara "Tammy" Ayon was leading the Democratic Party in Broward County, Florida. But that changed this year, when she left her position as Executive Director of the party to take a job with an Islamist group with ties to terrorism and bigotry. And while both groups work to involve themselves with politicians, the goals and associations of the two are as distant from each other as the difference between a petty thief and a mass murderer.
On April 22nd of this year, Tamara Tillman Ayon, then-Executive Director of the Broward Democratic Party, sent out a tweet from her Twitter account calling on people to sign a petition to "ban fracking on public lands." Fracking or hydraulic fracturing is the process of drilling and injecting fluid into the ground at a high pressure in order to fracture shale rocks to release natural gas which is contained inside.
In the United States, the push to ban fracking is a liberal initiative that many in the Democratic Party have taken up. It is not an issue that concerns many outside left-wing political circles.
