An update to a previous post about Nancy Pelosi and the Congressional perp walk through the Tea Party crowd

One of the accusations that has been made is that someone in the Tea Party crowd yelled "nigger" as many as "15 times" when John Lewis, a Georgia Congressman and "civil rights icon" walked up the steps of the Capitol Building.

Here's an article at the American Thinker: A Closer Look at the Capitol Steps Conspiracy. In his article, Jack Cashill calls the Democrats' attempt to discredit the Tea Party movement "one of the most appallingly successful media scams in recent years."

From Cashill's article: Here is what happened. Rather than use the tunnel from the Cannon Office Building to the Capitol, a contingent from the Black Caucus [as did Nancy Pelosi and her chums] chose to walk through a crowd of protesters. In none of the videos shot that day, including those by the members of the Caucus themselves, has anyone identified a single audible racial slur.

Andrew Breitbart from Big Government, etc., has asked that Lewis put up or shut up.

It’s time for the allegedly pristine character of Rep. John Lewis to put up or shut up. Therefore, I am offering $10,000 of my own money to provide hard evidence that the N- word was hurled at him not 15 times, as his colleague reported, but just once. Surely one of those two cameras wielded by members of his entourage will prove his point.
