FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. -- The chairman of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors is asking the U.S State Department to decide whether a controversial Saudi government-funded Islamic school should remain open.
Gerry Connolly -- who is the Democratic nominee for Congress in Virginia's 11th District -- offered a strong defense of the Islamic Saudi Academy and accused the school's critics of slander during a meeting last month in which the school's lease was approved but asked on Monday for the State Department's recommendation.
