The crazies are at it again.
Robert Spencer said it was like if "Christie had appointed as a judge someone who was an attorney for the Ku Klux Klan, or the Aryan Nations," and Andy McCarthy of the National Review attacked Christie for encouraging the supposedly "anti-Western, anti-Israeli, anti-Semitic, anti-assimilationist" leadership in the Muslim-American community. McCarthy appeared on the Center for Security Policy head Frank Gaffney's radio show yesterday to discuss Christie, and during the interview Gaffney jumped into the fray.
Gaffney accused Christie of "corruption" and even suggested that the governor is guilty of "misprision of treason." Misprision of treason is a federal offense that occurs when a person "owing allegiance to the United States and having knowledge of the commission of any treason against them, conceals and does not, as soon as may be, disclose" the treasonous activity to a federal official. Furthermore, whoever "is guilty of misprision of treason and shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than seven years, or both."
