Why are we not surprised that the organizer behind the Ground Zero mosque is a thug and tax cheat? Sorta sounds like he could be a member of the Obama Administration.
Read from Atlas Shrugs:
Ground Zero Deadbeat Thug Sharif El-Gamal Owes 224G tax
"Bloomberg is a disgrace. He is ramming this down our throats and having this thug with a rap sheet a mile long to Gracie mansion for official dinners.
Gamal, a low life who beats people up and threatens Muslims who speak out against the mosque, is a tax cheat, owing a quarter of a million in taxes. The slasher who attacked the Muslim cabdriver is affiliated with Gama's Park 51. Hmmmmm.
And this deadbeat is going to get taxpayer funds to build a $120 million Islamic supremacist mega mosque on Ground Zero? New York, November -- get thee to the polls!
And September 11th, join us to stop the mosque.
Mosque big owes 224G tax NY Post (hat tip Rod)
'The mosque developers are tax deadbeats.
Sharif El-Gamal, the leading organizer behind the mosque and community center near Ground Zero, owes $224,270.77 in back property tax on the site, city records show.
El-Gamal's company, 45 Park Place Partners, failed to pay its half-yearly bills in January and July, according to the city Finance Department.
The delinquency is a possible violation of El-Gamal's lease with Con Edison, which owns half of the proposed building site on Park Place. El-Gamal owns the other half but must pay taxes on the entire parcel.
The lease agreement, obtained by The Post, specifies that El-Gamal's company pay taxes on the property and submit receipts to Con Ed.
The utility said it would have to review any possible lease violations.
The late taxes are the latest wrinkle in the controversial plan to put the 15-story mosque near the World Trade Center site.
Before any building can go forward, the developers also must get approval from the MTA because the 2 and 3 subway lines run under a portion of the Park Place property, The Post has learned.'
What would we do without the NY Post?"
