How can you be so stupid as to place someone on a committee if you don't know who they are?

Why would you be so stupid as to admit it?

Fifth Ill. Hate Crimes Panelist Resigns

The four others who resigned said they were leaving rather than serve alongside Sister Claudette Marie Muhammad, minister of protocol for the Nation of Islam.

Criticism of her has mounted since she invited other commissioners to attend a speech last month by Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan in which he referred to "Hollywood Jews" promoting homosexuality and "other filth."

Okay, Farrakhan is a noted wingnut, so language like this isn't surprising from him. It's certainly surprising someone on a Hate Crimes panel would openly support him.

She was appointed to the commission in August by Gov. Rod Blagojevich, who has said he did not realize he had appointed a Nation of Islam official until learning about it from news reports.

Democrats sure ain't what they used to be.
