Yesterday, many of us pounced on the report by New York Observer that Robin Hayes, NC-08 claimed Liberals hate real Americans during a warmup act before a McCain rally in front of a home town crowd in Concord, NC. Once Ryan Grim from Politico picked it up and the story looked like it had legs, Hayes' spokeswoman from his congressional office, Amanda Little, made the claim that Hayes absolutely denied saying that about Liberals.
Ryan at The Crypt put the word out and did what professional journalists do - he looked for proof that Hayes either did or did not make the comments that reporter Jason Horowitz absolutely confirms he heard Robin Hayes say the words he reported as he was taking notes as he said them.
The evidence is all in. [This links to The Crypt where Ryan has audio of Hayes' remarks.] Thanks to Ryan for doing the heavy lifting on this and for not settling for the lies told by Robin Hayes and his federal employee, Amanda Little.
Robin Hayes has been lying about Larry Kissell, his character and where he stands on issues. Larry needs help fighting back against the lies. This is one example of how quickly and easily Robin Hayes lies. If he will lie this easily on something that can be checked against video and audio, imagine how quickly he'll lie to the voters when he knows they will have limited access to information that can prove him wrong.
The man lies through his teeth. Here's a video made out of the audio. Enjoy!
Please help Larry Kissell. I'm not sure Hayes out Bachmanned Michele Bachmann, but if you look at the entirety of his outlandish comments over time and the lies he tells to the voters he comes pretty darned close.
Again, audio of Hayes' remarks are at The Crypt. I'll update this diary with audio and video as soon as I have it.
