Michelle Nunn, the Democratic Party candidate for the Senate in Georgia, is on the defensive over revelations from a leaked campaign strategy memo that her charity assisted Islamic Relief USA (IRUSA). The Israeli government reportedly banned IRUSA's parent group, Islamic Relief Worldwide, for financing Hamas but the organization says its operations have not been shut down.
Nunn's strategy memo was published by National Review Online, which referenced the Clarion Project's research on IRUSA in its coverage of the document.
The memo identifies potential vulnerabilities in Nunn's campaign, such as "service award to inmates, terrorists" by the Points of Light charity when she was its CEO. The charity was originally founded by former President George H.W. Bush in 1987.
