That's ridicurous.

I read the link you posted.
So someone donated some money to James campaign.
And you put a headline that implies James is in kahoots with them.
I don't see it.

Boy, the Russians are lucky, Trump is just handing things over for free.

Michigan Republican Senate candidate John James received campaign contributions and was photographed with the organizer of the rally where conspirators accused of planning to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer allegedly plotted with a militia to recruit more members.

James, along with Vice President Mike Pence, was photographed with Ryan D. Kelley, a Grand Rapids real estate agent who heads the American Patriot Council, in since-deleted social media images reviewed by Salon. President Donald Trump was also pictured with Kelley in a photo posted to his Facebook profile.

Kelley was the organizer of the "Well-Regulated Militia" rally at the Michigan capitol in June. The FBI alleged in court documents that the leader of the group who plotted the attack on Whitmer met with militia leader Ty Garbin and a confidential source at the rally to discuss a plan and recruit more members.

Federal Election Commission records also show that Kelley has donated thousands to James' campaign.

I'm confused.

Are you saying he's linked to actual terrorists, or are you linking all militia-affiliated members as terrorists??

John James is linked to the terrorist cell that threatened Whitmer. He has no problems receiving their support and enjoying their company.

I still don't see it. By saying "linked", you are saying he is actively participating or supporting their actions.
All they did was donate some money to them. It's truly not the same thing.

And I've been pondering something else that's been thrown at James.
The attack ads about he wants to abolish Obamacare. So the attack ads say it's from something called Talking Points.
So I googled what Talking Points is. It's a blog. Just like this blog. And just like this blog, it has a search function.
So I searched "John James". Two articles about him came up on this Talking Points website.
One was a few years old talking about him thinking of running against Peters or Stevens or Slotkin.
The other talked about him deleting social media postings when he made up his mind what to run for.
I didn't see anything about Obamacare. Maybe I missed it.

Did you even read the article?? Exactly how is he "linked" to the terrorist cell, other than being a male and living in Michigan??

The rally referenced in the article was a pro-law enforcement, and generically supported militias. If there were a few folks there that used the opportunity to recruit folks, that has no bearing on James or the Rally organizers. They also could have recruited folks at the local Kroger, but does that make all Krogers bad??

The group in the plot was an anti-police, anti-government group. Quoting from a linked article about the rally: "We coordinated the entire rally with Michigan State Police [and] thanked them publicly for their service. To suggest our rally was a meeting place to discuss a plot against the [governor] is grossly inaccurate."

Also from a linked article:
“The American Patriot Council in no way condones violence as a form of political action. As the public is well aware, any actions taken by the American Patriot Council have been legal and lawful,” the council said in a statement. "While we hold the view that many public officials are guilty of a litany of crimes, and it has been our goal to hold these officials criminally responsible, we must do so lawfully."

You are clearly just trying to slander him and slander militias.

Once he finds a cute conservative girl he will be a John James supporter.
