U.S. Democratic Senate hopeful Kyrsten Sinema promoted events at Arizona State University featuring a lawyer convicted for aiding an Islamist terror organization and its leader.
Sinema, a co-founder of the activist group Local to Global Justice, invited people in a now-closed Yahoo group to attend two events with Lynn Stewart, both in 2003.
At the time of the invite, Stewart had been charged with helping her former client Omar Abdel Rahman, a radical Egyptian spiritual leader of a terror group, to pass on secret messages to his followers to commit terror attacks.
In the first events invite, Sinema said the lawyer was emphatically not guilty and would not have been charged with the crime if it werent for the hastily enacted PATRIOT Act, that expanded the U.S. governments power to surveil people and thus catch Stewart passing on the messages in the wake of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.
Prior to September 11th and the hastily enacted Patriot Act, Lynne Stewart never would have been indicted at all, the invite posted by Sinema read.
Last April, FBI agents arrested Stewart at her Brooklyn home. As they took her away in handcuffs, the FBI invaded and searched her Manhattan office. Her crime? Doing her job for the past 27 years as an outspoken criminal defense lawyer, it added.

Sinemas description of Stewart was not particularly accurate. Two years after the events in Arizona, Stewart was convicted of aiding the radical Egyptian cleric to pass on secret messages to a U.S.-designated terror group, the Islamic Group.
