Boxer Rescinds CAIR Recipient Award: Open TB Weekend

According to Newsweek, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA), recalled an award she had given to Sacramento activist Basim Elkarra “after learning that he serves as an official with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). After directing her staff to look into CAIR, Boxer “expressed concern” about some past statements and actions by the group, as well as assertions by some law enforcement officials that it “gives aid to international terrorist groups,” according to Natalie Ravitz, the senator’s press spokeswoman.”
