Ohio Treasurer and US Senate candidate Josh Mandel accused the Council on American-Islamic Relations of being a front for terrorism.
In a Facebook post Wednesday, Mandel posted a link to an article that makes the accusation.
The article states:
Since its founding in 1993, the Council for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has presented itself publicly as a benign Muslim American "civil rights organization." From that time to this, however, the United States government has known that CAIR actually is an entity founded by the Muslim Brotherhood's Palestinian franchise: Hamas, a group officially designated since 1994 as a terrorist organization.
