Rep. Wolf Slams Grover Norquist on House Floor

> Rep. Frank Wolf (R., Va.) took to the House floor this morning to deliver a blistering critique of American for Tax Reform president Grover Norquist.

> “I want to be perfectly clear: I do not support raising taxes on the American people,” Wolf said. “My concern is with the other individuals, groups, and causes with whom Mr. Norquist is associated that have nothing to do with keeping taxes low.”
>> Wolf listed the following as concerns about Norquist’s personal associations:
>> • His relationship with disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff
> • His ties to known terrorist financiers Abdurahman Alamoudi and Sami Al-Arian
> • His support for the Ground Zero Mosque
> • His advocacy for transferring Guantanamo detainees to U.S. soil
> • His lobbying on behalf of Fannie Mae
> • Hi representation of the Internet gambling industry
>> “Simply put, I believe Mr. Norquist is connected with or has profited from a number of unsavory people and groups out of the mainstream,” Wolf said.
