They said that racial slurs were hurled, but the video showed otherwise.
I asked what excuse the left might use to explain why the truth doesn't match the story. And, sure enough, they've come up with all kinds. Most of them saying that the videos were edited or incomplete. However, since Jesse Jackson, Jr., who was with the Congressmen, was videotaping the event, you'd figure there'd be proof of their claims. If they were true.
Andrew Breitbart is not only saying the Congressmen's claims are false, he's offering a bounty to anyone that can back up those claims.
He's offering $10,000 if Rep. John Lewis, a Georgia Democrat, can prove his claims:
Rep. Lewis, if you can’t do that, I’ll give him a backup plan: a lie detector test. If you provide verifiable video evidence showing that a single racist epithet was hurled as you walked among the tea partiers, or you pass a simple lie detector test, I will provide a $10K check to the United Negro College Fund.Will Lewis collect for the UNCF? Nope. But you know what I think the left will do? Accuse Breitbart of being a racist, because his offer includes the word "Negro."
