And the title of that article is misleading. He did not get jail time for being linked to an Islamic charity. He got jail time for accepting bribes and being corrupt.

There seems to be glitch or something. I keep double-posting even though I only clicked the "Post" button one time.

But they also say in the article that it was deemed to be an organization that supported Islamic terrorism.

Yes they were on a terrorist watch list, but having ties to them would not land him in jail. If that were the case then a lot of people in America would be in jail right now including everyone who has ties to the charity. He is in jail for accepting bribes from them.
