Obama's payroll includes Nation of Islam members

Barack Obama was speaking before AIPAC a short while ago. But while he may have tried to reassure Jewish community members about his stand on Israel, I think the following discovery made by WorldNetDaily could suggest otherwise, and tell that he's still siding with some very shady sources:
JERUSALEM – Sen. Barack Obama employed and continues to employ senior staffers who belong to the Nation of Islam, and the presidential candidate has some "worrying" ties to the controversial group headed by Louis Farrakhan, a former key Obama insider told WND.

The former insider, who spoke on condition of anonymity, expressed particular concerned that Obama employed at least two Nation members in his early days as a state senator, when his office was staffed by only a handful of workers.

"When you're a state senator, you have little money given to you to hire staff. It is ironic that two of Obama's employees in those days were known Nation of Islam activists when Obama employed perhaps a total of maybe three or four staffers," said the former insider.

The former insider confirmed Obama is directly aware of the Nation of Islam members on his staff.

[...]

The former insider identified early employees of Obama as Nation of Islam members, including Jennifer Mason, who still works in Obama's Chicago Senate office as director of constituency services – a key community liaison position.

Also, Cynthia K. Miller, whom the former insider identified as a Nation of Islam activist, served Obama in his early state Senate days and later as treasurer for his U.S. senatorial campaign.

Miller was also a paid consultant in 2003 and 2004, according to financial documents obtained by WND. She currently runs a Chicago real estate firm.

The former insider said Obama asked indicted Chicago businessman and Obama financier Tony Rezko to get his treasurer, Miller, a state government job with Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

"She got an offer but turned it down. She ended up doing real estate," the ex-insider said.

The former insider also identified former Obama worker Shakir Muhammad as a Nation of Islam activist. Muhammad was paid by Obama's office as a photographer in the late 1990s.

According to a black supremacist source tied to Farrakhan, Muhammad previously worked as a bodyguard for the Nation of Islam chief.

[...]

The former insider said he quit, in part, because of Obama's ties to the Nation of Islam and the senator's positions on Israel.

He previously also talked with columnist Debbie Schlussel, who first wrote about the Nation of Islam employees on Obama's staff.
Good grief. I wouldn't be surprised if Obama were still maintaining under-the-table relations with Jeremiah Wright and other members of the Trinity Church, and will continue to do so even after the election. One more reason why he cannot be elected for president in November.

Update: while we're on the subject of the NOI, hey, look at this: the City of Miami wants to give funding to the Peacemakers, a civilian patrol group with ties to the notorious gang (Hat tip: Michelle Malkin). Isn't that just what we need, corrupt municipalities providing dough to equally corrupt "civilian" outfits.

Update 2: the GOP has put out an ad featuring Democrats against Obama.

Update 3: well now, what have we here: Wright is still in charge of Trinity? Perhaps Obama is still maintaining relations with them too (Hat tip: Hot Air). One sure thing, nobody with common sense should ever waste time at Trinity.
