Ground Zero Mosque Asks For $5 Million Federal Grant to Help Fund Their Project

So what are the odds that Team Obama honors this request?

Developers for the Ground Zero Mosque recently applied for a $5 million federal grant to help fund their project.
The Daily Beast reported:

The so-called Ground Zero mosque recently applied for a $5 million federal grant from a fund designed to rebuild lower Manhattan after 9/11, reports The Daily Beast’s John Avlon.

Developers of the controversial Park51 Islamic community center and mosque located two blocks from Ground Zero earlier this month applied for roughly $5 million in federal grant money set aside for the redevelopment of lower Manhattan after the attacks of September 11th, according to two sources with direct knowledge of the matter.

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) tweeted that it was outrageous to even consider funding this project with federal taxpayer dollars.
