There is an emerging controversy over last night’s debate. Barack Obama told a lie when he claimed that someone yelled â€œkill himâ€? when presidential hopeful Barack Obamaâ€™s name was mentioned during this past Tuesdayâ€™s Sarah Palin rally in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
Obama’s claim is not substantiated by the Secret Service, which has reviewed the matter. It is noted that Agent Bill Slavoski was in the audience, along with an undisclosed number of additional secret service agents and other law enforcement officers, and not one heard the comment. I know that the agents take such threats or comments seriously and immediately opened an investigation, which has since been closed. They closed the investigation because there is NO PROOF that anyone made this horrible statement.
So why did Obama lie about the “Kill Him” Allegation by repeating it in the debate? These allegations are very serious, but the problem is after an investigation nobody can corroborate it.
Repeating a lie about the “Kill Him” allegation is simply wrong. Media types need to correct their record (yeah sure they will).
