Ex-Congressman Accused of Ties to Terrorism Pleads Guilty to Obstruction

Ex-Congressman Accused of Ties to Terrorism Pleads Guilty to Obstruction 07 Jul 2010 A former Michigan Republican congressman accused of accepting stolen funds to lobby on behalf of a charity with alleged ties to terrorism pleaded guilty Wednesday to two charges including obstruction of justice, but prosecutors said more serious charges would likely be dropped. Former Rep. Mark Deli Siljander, who served in Congress from 1981 until 1987 and as a United Nations delegate for a year, pleaded guilty in federal court in Kansas City to obstruction and acting as an unregistered foreign agent. Charges of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering will likely be dismissed under the terms of Siljander's plea deal, said Don Ledford, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office of the Western District of Missouri.
