Cruz includes Frank Gaffney on "security team."
"The list also included Frank Gaffney, a former official in the Reagan administration, and at least two other members of a think tank Gaffney founded, the Center for Security Policy. The center's reports, published on its website, argue that hundreds of thousands of American Muslims support Islamist violence in the United States and that there is a conspiracy to erode the U.S. legal system by elevating sharia, the Islamic legal code. The Southern Poverty Law Center, a civil rights organization based in Montgomery, Alabama, that monitors domestic hate groups and other extremists in the United States, has labeled the Center for Security Policy a "hate group" and Gaffney a "notorious Islamophobe."
Cruz just got my attention. Indeed, he has a lot going for him, including guts and intelligence. Let's see if he backs down. If not, he has my vote.
