SHAMELESS: Linda Sarsour Solicits Donations For ‘Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund’ That’s Actually A Leftist Organizing Group

On Monday, leftist icon Linda Sarsour used the tragedy of Hurricane Harvey to funnel money to a leftist political group with no obvious connection to the victims who were traumatized by the hurricane.

Sarsour tweeted:

Then people started doing some digging on the “relief fund”:

The site for Sarsour’s chosen charity, the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, which is a project of the Texas Organizing Project Education Fund, writes:

Rebuilding in areas impacted by Harvey will be most challenging for marginalized communities. Nearly a quarter of Houstonians live in poverty — approximately 550,000 people. We also estimate that there are 575,000 immigrants in the Houston metro area. We will work to move the material aid the most vulnerable hit by Harvey to ensure their access to critical services — from first response and basic needs to healthcare, housing, transportation, immigration. Together we will organize and advocate for our devastated communities, shining a spotlight on inequalities that emerge in the restoration of lives, livelihoods, and homes, amplifying the needs of hard-hit communities, and providing legal assistance for residents wrongfully denied government support.

The Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund is supported by the left-wing groups SEIU and, among other groups. The Texas Organizing Project Education Fund’s parent organization, the Texas Organizing Project, was an organization morphed into by the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), the radical group that was allegedly implicated in voter-registration fraud, vote-rigging, voter intimidation, and vote-for-pay scams. ACORN was disbanded in 2010, but at least 15 former ACORN employees were convicted of voter fraud-related activities, according to Discover the Networks.
