Frankfort Township assessor criticized for e-mail

Muslims in Will County are demanding an apology from Frankfort Township Assessor Paul Ruff for an e-mail he helped circulate that allegedly contained anti-Islamic sentiments.

Although a copy of the e-mail wasn't available Wednesday, Council on American-Islamic Relations of Chicago executive director Ahmed Rehab told the Chicago Tribune he was shown a very similar e-mail that has been widely circulated.

Rehab said in the similar e-mail, immigrants are chastised for ''diluting sovereignty and our national identity.'' It goes on to say that those who don't agree with the Christian motto ''In God We Trust'' should leave the country.

Ruff acknowledged he forwarded an e-mail with similar sentiments. He said he did not write the e-mail; he just passed it on.

Ruff said he will respond to requests that he apologize, but not immediately.
