(Dailywire) An official at an anti-Semitic organization donated thousands of dollars to Deputy Chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) last year, a new report finds.
Taher Herzallah is the associate director of outreach and grassroots organizing at “the anti-Israel American Muslims for Palestine group who openly advocates for violence against the Jewish state,” The Washington Free Beacon reported. Campaign disclosure documents show that Herzallah donated $2,500 to Ellison in 2017.
"Herzallah is best known as one of the 'Irvine 11,' a group of students who were sentenced to three years probation for actions taken to disrupt a 2010 speech by then-Israeli ambassador Michael Oren," the Free Beacon reports. "He more recently—just a few weeks before his contribution to Ellison—was arrested for disrupting confirmation hearings for U.S. ambassador to Israel David Friedman."
