"[Tulsi] is trying to point out the little possible money impropriety of Mufi"
This is a 270 page complaint by Tulsi Gabbard to the FEC (Federal Election Commission)! I am very impressed. It takes a lot of effort and detailed work to put together a complaint like this.
In the past complaints against the Gabbards have been filed with various federal and state commissions, but none of these complaints have come close to 270 pages, to my knowledge.
These kind of complaints rarely result in anything other than a small fine. An expert on Hawaii News Now said he doesn't expect this complaint to have much effect. It is unlikely to affect the outcome of the Primary Election.
Tulsi is getting elected to an office that has a two-year term. If she does get elected, we will have two years to prepare for her 2014 re-election. We'll have time to look very closely at all her campaign contributors and look for ties to Jagad Guru Chris Butler. There would be time also for people to research the cult. Perhaps someone will leave the cult, with documentation, over the two year period.
I think we should all be watching our elected officials like hawks all the time, however even I don't do this. But because of Tulsi Gabbard's unique background, I think there will be a lot of eyes watching her and her performance in Washington, D.C.
If she gets elected, Tulsi may be the first Hindu ever elected to the U.S. Congress. And this will be very interesting because she has promised to be pro choice and to support LGBT rights. Think about that and how that might fit in with Hinduism.
In Washington, D.C., as one of the few, or perhaps the only elected Hindus, Tulsi may get some attention from national news media. That could be very interesting. I'll bet it will be be easier to get national news media interested in her as an elected U.S. Representative. Tulsi is presenting herself as a feminist of sorts. So she would be a Hindu feminist in the U.S. Congress. Think about that.
When Tulsi left the Hawaii House of Representives to join the Hawaii National Guard in 2004, it might have been because she felt that she was in over her head. It is also possible that her cult backers realized that it would be a long time before she could accomplish much in the Hawaii State Legislature. I'm still not convinced that she is up to this bigger job.
They may realize that things will not go quickly in the U.S. House of Representatives, either.
dabcult, hope that you and others are in this for the long haul.
