WASHINGTON — A lobbyist and former Michigan congressman was paid $50,000 to lobby for a charity that funneled money to al-Qaeda, Osama bin Laden and an Afghan warlord, according to an indictment made public Wednesday.
Mark Deli Siljander, 56, who served in Congress from 1981 to 1987 and was later appointed by President Ronald Reagan to the United Nations, was charged in an indictment filed in Missouri with money laundering, conspiracy and lying to the FBI. The crimes allegedly happened after his tenure in Congress and at the United Nations.
