IPT Catches Keith Ellison in a Lie

Keith Ellison (D-MN) is the front runner to be named the next chairman of the DNC. However, he is under fire on a number of fronts given his associations with questionable Muslim individuals and organizations as well as remarks he has made that many call anti-Semitic. Specifically,  Ellison is having to explain remarks he made in a past speech about Israel and her supporters. The comments were made in 2010 at a fundraiser for Esam Omeish, a past president of the Muslim Brotherhood-linked Muslim American Society. As a result of this revelation, the Anti Defamation League, which had been supporting Ellison's candidacy for the DNC position,dropped its support.

Now Ellison is complaining that the remarks in question have been edited and taken out of context by the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT). In response, IPT is releasing the complete speech Ellison made-transcript and audio.

What credibility would the Democratic party have if it names this disreputable figure as its chair? They will simply reveal just how far left they have drifted. But who am I to give them advice?
