The Democratic opponent of Rep. Dan Lungren, R-Gold River, has returned a $250 campaign contribution from an official with the Council on American-Islamic Relations after Republicans questioned whether the donation came from a terrorist.

The campaign for Ami Bera, an Elk Grove physician running against Lungren this year in the 3rd Congressional District, confirmed on Monday that Bera returned the contribution to Basim Elkarra, CAIR's executive director.

    Posts: 2 Darrell: At the top of the story, it says "By Ross Farrow, News-Sentinel Staff Writer."

    I read that too... thats what confused me. After reading the article, it appeared that Ross Farrow could be an employee of Ami based on the slant . If I were Ami, I would be very happy with what was printed.

    Please clarify... Is Ross Farrow an employee of Ami Bera or the Lodi News Sentinel.
    After reading the article I was not certain.
