The New York Times (via Patriot Missive):
A Muslim activist and frequent critic of the Los Angeles police was sentenced to four years in prison after pleading guilty to trying to bribe a witness in a criminal case involving his daughter. The activist, Najee Ali, 45, was sentenced Monday. A two-year sentence was doubled because of a robbery conviction in 1992, said Sandi Gibbons, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County district attorney. Mr. Ali was a gang member before converting to Islam and founding the group Project Islamic Hope...
The Project Islamic HOPE website features a photo of Barack Obama with Najee Ali and a ringing endorsement of "change we can believe in".
