Re: Your Campaign and the Muslim Brotherhood

Hi Ted,

First, I want to thank you for bringing this to my attention. As you probably know, I have been the subject of many anonymous attacks since receiving the support of the Tea Party Federation on Monday. Receiving that support has been the proudest moment of my time in politics, but it has also painted a bullseye on me. So, I appreciate your forthrightness and giving me an opportunity to address this. 

Now to your question. Delegate David Ramadan is a Republican and represents part of Prince William and Loudoun Counties. Since getting elected in 2011, David has represented us as a staunch conservative in the House of Delegates and was one of the brave members to vote against the transportation tax increase.  As a fellow conservative, and as the leader of a County that he partially represents, I of course support him.  He is also supported by former Attorney General, Ed Meese, and many other prominent conservatives.

That said, if the allegations that are laid out below are true, i would not only drop my support of him, but I would condemn him. If there is any evidence of the allegations, please send it to me.   I know that David was accused of these things when he was running for office. Politics can be dirty, and reputations can be easily and unjustly slurred, especially in the age of the internet. I would ask that you give David a chance to address these accusations with you. 

This is what I know about David.  David worships at Park Valley Church, a conservative evangelical Christian church in Gainesville.  I know his Pastor, Pastor Barry White, and have attended services there myself. I spoke to David a few moments ago, and he has publicly, and viciferously, condemned CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood, as well as any other radical or anti-American organization.  I also, of course, denounce those organizations. He wasn't very familiar with ISNA or their activities, but if they are acting similar to CAIR, he will condemn them too.  So, if you asking me to denounce David based on on unproven allegations.  The answer is No.  I will not denounce anyone based on things that are not only unproven, but contrary to what I know about the man.  If the allegations are proven true, then i would denounce him.  

David would greatly appreciate the opportunity to discuss this with directly.  He asked me to give you his telephone number if you are willing to talk.  He has been attacked repeatedly since running for office, and those attacks have not ceased since he got elected.  It has been very frustrating to him because most of those attacks have come anonymously.  Please feel free to call me at 703-283-2802 if you would like to discuss this further.

Dear Mr. Stewart --
     It has come to my, and many others', attention that you are a longtime political supporter of, and are supported by, David Ramadan.  Either you are unaware, or, worse, approving, of his solid connections with organizations such as CAIR and ISNA, both firmly connected to, and funded by, the Muslim Brotherhood, a self-declared enemy of the United States.  Mr. Ramadan was also a strong supporter of the Ground Zero mosque.
     Although we heartily approve of your conservative record, unless you publicly renounce your support for David Ramadan and all Muslim Brotherhood affiliated groups, I and many others will be voting against you at the Convention.

Very Sincerely,
Ted Williams
