Hoosier Rep. Andre Carson's Big Lie

It has become clear that Indiana Congressman Andre Carson lied about racist slurs against him... Didn't we all read the story about "Crying Wolf" when we were kids?  Congressman Carson's false claim shows he doesn't really believe wolves are out there...

The primary accuser, [Indiana] Congressman Carson, who audaciously claimed the crowd screamed the "N-word fifteen times," would not return our call. So we have gone part way to try and piece together the events of March 20.

Not only is the audio devoid of any racial slur, but the scene at Cannon clearly shows the congressmen coming down the steps completely unobstructed, and with a clear path to the Capitol. And, when we juxtapose the audio accusation Rep.Carson made moments after the alleged event occurred with actual video footage of the moment Rep. Carson claims he first heard the racial slur, it is as plain as day that Congressman Carson was not isolated by a mob and facing a racist throng that could conceivably hurl rocks at him. As you can see for yourself.

The reason the Congressmen walked through the crowd to get to the Capitol was to try to cause an incident.  When no incident occurred, they made up the claim and the media ran with it.
