Jodie Evans is a terrorist sympathizing, America and Israel bashing extreme left-wing activist in California. Evans, also, is a supporter of Democratic California gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown. And, apparantely, Brown is a supporter of Evans.

How do we know? Brown attended, over the weekend, an exclusive fundraiser at Evans's California home. Here's the invitation:

What do we know about Evans?

--She's a founder of Codepink, the dangerously radical left-wing organization.

--She coddled the president of the greatest state sponsor of terror, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, in Iran. 

--She tries to silence people she disagrees with by putting them in handcuffs.

--She's the founder of a group that hates the military, and encourages troops to "shoot their officers."

--Codepink calls for an end to American aid for Israel.

--Codepink, on its website, calls for a boycott of Israeli products, because, well, they don't like Israelis.  

And all that's only to name a few things Evans has been a part of.

Hmm. No wonder Brown has, as Noah Silverman has chronicled, a peculiar penchant for dropping Nazi references on the campaign trail.
