Gaffney Accuses Christie Of Abetting Treason By Appointing Muslim

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) has faced relentless criticism from Islamophobic members of his own party for his decision to appoint a Muslim lawyer, Sohail Mohammed, to a New Jersey court. Right Wing Watch notes that leading Sharia conspiracy theorist and conservative radio host Frank Gaffney became the latest to attack Christie yesterday, going so far as to accuse the governor of “corruption” and “misprision of treason.” The latter is a federal offense that amounts to intentionally concealing treasonous activity — a very serious charge indeed to level at the state’s top-ranking official. Gaffney was interviewing Andy McCarthy of the National Review, who attacked Christie for encouraging “anti-Western, anti-Israeli, anti-Semitic” leadership in the Muslim-American community.
