No evidence on N-word after a month

Congressman John Lewis claimed that March 21, the day Obama's health care takeover passed, he, Rep. Andre Carson, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr., and other black congressmen had the N-word shouted at them as they passed through a crowd outside the US Capitol building. But the evening news reporting this showed no video. Where is the tape? Andrew Breitbart offered $10,000, then upped it to $100,000, for a single video recording of the claim. Congressman Lewis got real quiet. Sound Politics My follow up on April 17 After a month the accusers are very quiet. Where is their video? Where is Rep. Andre Carson - the first accuser? Where is Honorable John Lewis - the big-name megaphone? Last month they were saying we need a dialogue about racism. OK. Let's have it now. Come out of hiding. Andrew Breitbart follows up. He has collected videos so he can reconstruct what happened.
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.
Honorable John Lewis, where are you?
