Video Disproves Emanual Cleaver's Spit Claim...

Emanual Cleaver claimed he was spit on by Tea Party Protesters. I think this video proves he just got a little spittle on him from someone yelling. Give me a Break..

Hey, just so you know up front, I'm with you; I'm a Tea Party member. But I'm concerned about this "claim". I'm also worried that your video does not disprove anything. We cannot hear what the guy said to Cleaver when he walked by. Or tell clearly which guy it was since when he came back, he seemed to be "looking for the guy" when the guy I saw yelling right in his face was standing right there. We can see he stopped and appeared to get upset and then went and got a "cop". He appeared to be wiping spit off his face, but we don't know what that means. Are you thinking he was acting all that out and pretending so he could make a false allegation? That sounds a bit shakey to me. I WANT it to be false, but I'm just not sure it is. I saw the video of the (supposedly) Tea Party folks taunting and throwing money at the Parkinsons disease guy, and that was really disturbing. Unless the guys throwing the money turn out to be Dems or Libs posing as Tea Partiers, we don't have a leg to stand on there. And that's what concerns me that this allegation could be true. What do you think? Do you know something more about this having been there?

It is my understanding that the man was yelling Kill the Bill. As he was yelling some spittal came out of his mouth and hit the Congressmen due to his close proximity.

If you look at the Video, if he had wanted to spit on congressmen he could have done it on others that passed close by as well. No Charges were filed in this case for obvious reasons. The Congressmen got spital from someone yelling, not because someone spit on him on purpose.

Do you really think that IF there was a charge to file against the man that it would have been done?

The Progressives are just hoping someone does something stupid that they can connect to a Tea Party somewhere...case in Point Russ Carnahan blowing the Coffin thing way out of proportion...

I was a couch potato almost 4 years ago..Since then I have covered alot of Politcial events. The First thing you learn is to NEVER trust a thing you hear from a politican or that you see on the news. For them, Perception is reality....and 8 times out of 10, reality has nothing to do with it.
