[Ed. – It’s remarkable that in 2018, association with Louis Farrakhan isn’t an automatic career ender for the Left. Especially when it’s from the same character who blamed Jews for D.C.’s inclement weather and more recently blew off a tour of the Holocaust Museum. Time for him to go.]
D.C. Council member Brianne Nadeau (D-Ward 1) has called for the council to censure her fellow lawmaker, Council member Trayon White Sr. (D-Ward 8), after a Washington Post article Friday revealed campaign finance officials were asking him to account for a $500 payment to a Nation of Islam event in Chicago earlier this year.
The donation was made Jan. 29 from White’s constituent services account, which is money raised by a member that is legally required to benefit Washington residents. Per The Post, this money is most often used to help a constituent in need pay a bill or send flowers to a family in mourning.
“The most recent revelation, that Council member Trayon White used his Constituent Services Fund to sponsor an event at which Minister Louis Farrakhan made anti-Semitic remarks, is appalling,” Nadeau said in a statement. “With today’s revelations, I believe we have crossed a threshold. I believe the Council should censure Council member T. White for his misuse of funds in support of anti-Semitism and homophobia.”
