    Elton Simpson, one of the Mohammed art-contest gunmen killed Sunday in Texas, dodged federal efforts to place him on the no-fly list and pin terrorism charges on him earlier this decade, receiving instead probation and a $500 fine.

The documents show that an FBI informant recorded hundreds of conversations with Simpson in which they discussed...

    Washington (AFP) - The group behind the Prophet Mohammed cartoon event in Texas where police killed two gunmen Sunday has a history of making provocative statements about Islam that it says are aimed at defending "freedom" and critics see as antagonizing Muslims. The American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), led by provocative activist Pamela Geller, offered a $10,000 prize in a competition to draw a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed. Depicting the Prophet Mohammed is seen as offensive by many Muslims. Such satirical images have prompted violence in the past including in Paris this year when 12 people were gunned down...

He’s so far left in the Democratic Party that he’s not even actually a member of the Democratic Party.
