Obama’s nonprofit may merge with group with ties to Palestinian terrorists, Marxists

The Free Beacon is reporting that President Obama's nonprofit Organizing for Action is considering a merger with a left-wing group with financial ties to Palestinian terrorists and Central American Marxists.

The Common Purpose Project website bills the organization "founded to bring together progressive leaders and organizations in an effort to collaborate on effective public policy messaging," but its accounting details tell a more complex story.

The Free Beacon has found through public disclosure forms that CPP's donors, Sandor and Faye Straus, are founders of a left-wing group named the Firedoll Foundation. Following the money trail doled out by the Firedoll Foundation connects the Straus family to Nicaragua's Marxist Sandinista government and the Holy Land Foundation, an Islamic charity that federal law enforcement authorities closed down for financing Palestinian terrorist groups.

The Free Beacon tried to follow up with the Common Purpose Project, who refused to comment.
