Now that Stewart is convicted, we might ask the groups that took Soros money the following questions:
Are you embarrassed that one of your major donors contributed to the defense of someone accused — and now convicted — of helping a convicted terrorist communicate with his followers?
Will you consider returning the money you received from the Open Society Institute?
Finally, will you accept grants in the future from donors that assist accused terrorists?
I won’t hold my breath waiting for the answers. But these Soros-funded groups should not just take the money and run. Instead, they should think seriously about their moral responsibility as grant recipients, and they should look to the example of some of their ideological brethren.
Both the Ford and Rockefeller Foundations recently instituted policies requiring their grantees to sign a statement saying that its grantees do not support terrorist groups or activities. At the very least, the morally responsible action for OSI grant recipients is to refuse any further OSI money until OSI adopts a similar policy.

Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
