Ironical: Ground Zero Mosque Imam Sued for Embezzlement
Allegedly he spent it on sports cars, real estate, and lavish vacations. Personally, I'd have spent in on Menendez's Russian hooker. But who knows, maybe this Evelyn Adorno is really, really hot? Like, Russian hooker hot.
Robert Leslie Deak, a major backer of Imam Feisel Abdul Rauf’s nonprofit, the Cordoba Initiative, says he discovered that the religious leader had allegedly used the funds for “his personal use” including “a luxury sports car, personal real estate, entertainment, lavish trips, and vacation” with an unidentified woman named Evelyn Adorno, the court papers, filed late yesterday, claim.That last $20 million was slated to go combating "anti-Islamic sentiment". You know, like the widespread Islamophobic notion that imams like Rauf spend lavish amounts on their mistresses.
Deak, of Scarsdale and the Deak Family Foundation, is suing Rauf for $20 million.
