Back in 2009 when the proposed construction of the Ground Zero Mosque was a hot topic I designated Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the guiding force behind the project, the Flim Flam Imam because of his speaking of peace and ecumenicalism in the West while speaking quite another message to his funding sources in the Middle East.  If the allegations of a law suit are to be believed, there is another reason now to refer to him as the Flim Flam Imam:

 

 

Instead, the controversial imam used some of the cash to provide lavish gifts  and getaways to a woman identified as Evelyn Adorno, who shared “a personal  relationship with Rauf,” said Deak’s attorney, Jonathan Nelson.

Adorno lives in North Bergen, N.J. — the same town as the 64-year-old imam  and his wife, Daisy Khan.

The rest of the cash was spent on a luxury sports car, personal real estate  and entertainment for the imam and his wife, charges the 11-page lawsuit.

The religious leader’s largesse and expensive travel with Adorno, 57, came  despite the $50,138 annual salary he reported in Cordoba’s 2010 tax filing.
