First, the looters were taking advantage of Hurricane Harvey and using the storm as a means to tie up the police so they can loot TVs. Now liberal icon Linda Sarsour is using the hurrican to funnel money to a leftists political group.
That’s right, this leftist political group has no obviously connection to those who were hit with this devastating hurricane.
Here is the tweet from Sarsour.

After this tweet, the sleuths of the internet began digging to see what they could find about this “relief fund.”

Personally, I think it's disgusting to try to get people to donate to a political organization using a natural disaster as cover. https://t.co/j7S16sL3Wv

Linda Sarsour’s chosen charity, the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, is a project of the Texas Organizing Education Fund:
Rebuilding in areas impacted by Harvey will be most challenging for marginalized communities. Nearly a quarter of Houstonians live in poverty — approximately 550,000 people. We also estimate that there are 575,000 immigrants in the Houston metro area. We will work to move the material aid the most vulnerable hit by Harvey to ensure their access to critical services — from first response and basic needs to healthcare, housing, transportation, immigration. Together we will organize and advocate for our devastated communities, shining a spotlight on inequalities that emerge in the restoration of lives, livelihoods, and homes, amplifying the needs of hard-hit communities, and providing legal assistance for residents wrongfully denied government support.
Per Daily Wire:
The Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund is supported by the left-wing groups SEIU and MoveOn.org, among other groups. The Texas Organizing Project Education Fund’s parent organization, the Texas Organizing Project, was an organization morphed into by the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), the radical group that was allegedly implicated in voter-registration fraud, vote-rigging, voter intimidation, and vote-for-pay scams. ACORN was disbanded in 2010, but at least 15 former ACORN employees were convicted of voter fraud-related activities, according to Discover the Networks.
There are few things worse than using a natural disaster for political gain.
