    Before the audience Jackson said this

    He didn’t get the contract," Jackson continued. "Why should I reward someone who doesn’t like the president, so they can use funds to try to campaign against the president? Logic says they don’t get the contract. That’s the way I believe."

    NOW his spokesperson is claiming his statement was Not Factual, in fact she did say it antidotal.

    My point was and is that the intent was the same whether the story was fact or whether he just made it up. His intent was to make sure his audience knew that Loyalty to the Republican Party was necessary to obtain a contract from HUD>

    •  the spokesperson changed her story (3+ / 0-)

      Read Georgia's article again.  On May 3, the spokesperson said that Jackson was referring to an actual contract for handling advertising in minority publications.  Today she is saying that the story was just a story and there was no contractor.

      Also check out this point from a Talking Points Memo reader.  Ordinarily people don't volunteer to the HUD secretary that they don't support the president, especially if they want a contract.  But what if Jackson had just hit the guy up for a campaign contribution?  After all, Jackson was a "Pioneer", a fundraiser for Bush, before he got the HUD job.
