RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Abedin in 2016.

Huma Mahmood Abedin (1976–) is a longtime close adviser to former First Lady, Secretary of State, and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and the most distinguished American with both the FBI and the Islamic State on her ass.[1][2] She was married to former US Representative Anthony "The Mongoose" Weiner.[3]

Michelle Bachmann controversy[edit]

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann during the 2012 Republican Presidential primaries accused Abedin of being a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. Her campaign manager, Ed Rollins, who engineered Ronald Reagan's 1984 landslide 49 state win, resigned shortly afterward. Rollins, who later signed onto a pro-Trump SuperPAC, called Bachmann's Islamophobic comments "extreme and dishonest" and publicly advised her to apologize.[4]
