Arrested Democratic Fundraiserís Pro-Taliban, Pro-Iran Agenda

Amy Goodman of the Marxist Democracy Now! network reported yesterday on the arrest of a “leading Democratic donor” named Hassan Nemazee.

Here is the story, in its entirety:

Back in the United States, a leading Democratic donor has been arrested and charged with seeking to defraud the financial giant Citibank. Hassan Nemazee is accused of submitting forged documents to secure a $74 million loan. Nemazee has given at least $150,000 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee since 2006 and supported several other leading Democratic politicians.

Not much to sink your teeth into there. Could it be that Goodman is downplaying this story? Who is Hassan Nemazee, anyway?

Nemazee, it turns out, is an Iranian-American real-estate developer and investor, and is currently Chairman and CEO of Nemazee Capital Corporation, a holdings company that invests in both public and private companies. After making millions of dollars in his dealings, he began to actively support the Democratic Party with large cash contributions. He was the principal fundraiser for John Kerry’s 2004 presidential campaign, for which he raised more than $100,000. He gave more than $150,000 to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) during the 1990s, at least $60,000 to Bill Clinton’s legal defense fund, and $250,000 to Al Gore’s presidential campaign in 2000.

So is he just a zealous Democratic Party supporter with deep pockets?

Not quite. This may be the part Goodman was reluctant to talk about. Nemazee, you see, has a dark secret: he’s a terrorist sympathizer.
