STATE — Campaign finance records show that an alleged al-Qaida member who grew up in New Jersey received $75 as an election day worker for Gov. Jon Corzine’s campaign in 2005.
Assemblyman Joseph Cryan, who presided over Corzine’s 2005 election day field operations, did not respond to inquiries concerning his employment of Sharif Mobley.
In 2005, Mobley earned $75 as an election day worker for the Corzine for Governor campaign according to state election finance reports.
The al-Qaida connection to the Corzine-Cryan campaign operation was first reported in the New York Times.
Republicans have previously alleged that the Corzine-Cryan campaign machine employed drug addicts and other criminals to ramp up voting in urban areas.
The al-Qaida connection to the campaign suggests that political workers are not screened properly to ensure safety of voters.
