Opponent of Muslim Candidate Charged with Domestic Violence in 1995

As we reported earlier in our pages, Democratic candidate Keith Ellison – who is almost certain to win election from his Minneapolis district and become the first Muslim in Congress – has stirred up considerable controversy due to his past ties to the Nation of Islam.

His opponent, Alan Fine, isn’t without his own problems – turns out he was charged with domestic violence in 1995, although it was later expunged from his record. Fine maintains he is innocent.
