Still no proof of spitting on Congressman or use of the n-word
See for your self at 1:33 in this video.
It looks like he's reacting to some overspray from the guy shouting. And then Cleaver lets into the guy about something.
But intentional spitting? The n-word?
I believe that is the man in the center of the spit and n-word controversy, Congressman Emanuel Cleaver. And it doesn't look like he was spat on. Notice the police officer accompanying him - why did he not pursue an assault charge right there when the officer is present.
Conclusion: because it didn't happen.
I'll just come out and say it. A congressman has made a racially charged accusation, and he is lying about it. Prove us wrong, Congressman Cleaver.
