Attorney Khizr Khan is being encouraged to run for the House of Delegates against Rob Bell in Charlottesville. Kahn lost a son in Iraq while he was serving in the Army. Kahn gave an impassioned speech at the Democrat convention in support of Hillary Clinton and criticizing Trump. Then Trump made some stupid remarks about Kahn and his son apparently because Trump is so thin skinned he cannot take any criticism. Welcome to politics Donald!
Now a Vietnam veteran who once worked for Bill Clinton, Thomas Keefe, is organizing an effort to back Khan for the House of Delegates. In less than one day, Keefe raised over $10,000 from 53 donors through CrowdPac.com. Mr.Keefe has a slogan for the campaign, “Yes we Kahn!”.
“I heard him speak and the sincerity really came through,” Keefe said in a phone interview. “This is America, the great melting pot. This is another example of a person who could really change the ideas some of the people in this country have.”
The very popular Delegate Rob Bell has represented Charlottesville in the General Assembly since 2002. He is currently running for Attorney General in 2017. It is very unlikely Bell would lose his seat to Kahn.
More on the story here.
Rob Bell will not win the AG race so he’d better focus on his House seat. John Adams has raised much more cash and will win!
If you’d like to read some truth about the Kahns:
Here are some new facts coming out on Twitter that are yet to be confirmed. Thought I’d post here in case someone wants to do more research:
– Khan was paid $25,000 by the Clinton campaign to speak at the DNC.
– the speech was not written by Mr. Khan, but by two campaign staffers.
– the copy of the US Constitution that Mr. Khan held up was bought only two HOURS before his speech by a female staffer, to be used solely as a prop and Khan returned the book after speaking.
– 5 Gold Star families turned down the opportunity to speak before Khan was contacted by the Clinton campaign.
– All five families were paid $5,000 and signed a non disclosure.
– Khan’s immigration law firm is in debt $1.7M and owes back taxes of upward $850,000 plus penalties.
– CNN paid Khan over $100,000 to tell his “story” and repeated interviews across networks.
– Khan was given a bonus of $175k by the DNC for his effort in the media.
– The IRS has since put Khan’s tax file on a “hold” status.
Thank you! I will incorporate this into a blog post on Mr. Kahn that I hope to have up later tonight. There are more irregularities surrounding Mr. Kahn.
Jeanine: One of the more curious aspects of Mr. Khan’s business is that it involved types of State Department visas that are notorious for being corrupt pay for play visas. Mr. Khan, a noted sharia advocate who has written that all other forms of legal systems are subordinate to it, was involved with both the Saudi government and the Clinton Foundation.
I suspect that his sudden decision to remove his website from thee internet was that folks were starting to take a hard look at his various business connections and services offered, particularly any prior that might show prior involvement with the Clintons.
I do not see how Mr. Khan can run for anything under circumstances that might easily result in him being investigated for criminal activity.
Sure he can run w/criminal activity going on, he is a democrat.
Not a fan of Ann’s, but she nailed Khan.

Saw this comment over on Gateway Pundit – not sure if the links will work here but Sundance should follow up on the connections to the Clinton Foundation and Mr Khan’s former employer.
Khizr M. Khan used to work for Hogan & Hartson, which has ties to the Clinton Foundation. He now works as a Lawyer.
Hogan & Hartson and Lovells announced their agreement to merge on 15 December 2009
“Hogan Lovells LLP, another U.S. firm hired by the Saudis, is registered to work for the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia through 2016, disclosures show. Robert Kyle, a lobbyist from the firm, has bundled $50,850 for Clinton’s campaign”
Concurrently Hogan Lovells has made a three-year Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) “Commitment to Action.”
“Many lawyers at Hogan Lovells remember the week in 2004 when U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan lost his life to a suicide bomber. Then-Hogan & Hartson attorneys mourned the death because the soldier’s father, Khizr Khan, a Muslim American immigrant, was among their beloved colleagues”

For those who may not see it below Khizr Khan is tied to loretta lynch through the law firm they both used to work for so there’s a hillary rotten clinton connection. He used to live in Silver Springs,MD but he lives outside DC now and he’s a paid political speaker.
He’s in the phone book
DNC Speaker Khizr Khan a Man of Character, Say Former Big-Law Colleagues
Many lawyers at Hogan Lovells remember the week in 2004 when U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan lost his life to a suicide bomber. Then-Hogan & Hartson attorneys mourned the death because the soldier’s father, Khizr Khan, a Muslim American immigrant, was among their beloved colleagues.
Loretta Lynch also worked for Hogan Lovells.
John W. Warner also worked at Hogan & Hartson.
Democrats using the military for their purpose, I have to agree w/these two ladies. Interesting that both died due to Obama.
Just what our government needs, another person with muslim brotherhood connections.
Just what Virginia needs as a delegate: an immigration attorney.
He deleted his legal services website. He isn’t an immigration attorney, he is a scam visa facilitator.
You’re giving this guy WAY too much credit.
He didn’t make an “impassioned speech”, he engaged in an inflammatory partisan attack against a presidential candidate (on live TV no less). Apparently with the expectation that he could use his dead son as a shield against all criticism/retaliation. He was mistaken.
Oh, and this scumbag lives in VA…awesome.
The “good” news just keeps on coming. Sigh.
This is quite a leap, but he does check all the boxes for the liberals around here.
While Rob Bell has certainly filled the role of delegate from the 58th legislative district admirably for several years now and may well come out on top of next year’s three-man race(?) for the Republican nomination for Attorney General of Virginia, there are I think two other more deserving potential Republican candidates that I know of waiting in the wings who could well succeed Rob in the House of Delegates if he is in fact is fortunate enough to become our next Attorney General. One of these two men is an investment advisor and former Albemarle County Supervisor Ken Boyd. The other man is a former New York City police officer, and a former Elementary School Principal in Madison and Louisa, who I believe is currently working with Charlottesville Catholic Schools. His name is Mike Allers, a resident of Greene County. Thankfully I have worked well with all three of these Republicans in the past and consider them all as mutual friends. Yet whether or not Mr. Khan or any other candidate decide to enter this race, I would certainly hope that the Republican Party nominee can retain this seat in what will certainly be a most interesting and important race to watch.
