Earlier today, Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan released an official statement regarding this past Tuesday nights Democratic Presidential Debate in Ohio between Sen. Barack Obama and Sen. Hillary "Hilly" Clinton.
The moderators of the debate were MSNBC Nightly News anchor, Brian Williams and MSNBC "Meet The Press" host, Tim Russert. And it was Russert who attempted to "corner" Sen. Obama about an alleged "endorsement " of his candidacy for president by Nation of Islam leader, Minister Louis Farrakhan.
--In it's entirety, I will reprint Min. Farrakhan's official press release:
FARRAKHAN: 'MISCHIEF MAKING' SHOULD NOT DAMPEN SUPPORT FOR OBAMA
In response to outrage expressed by many, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan issued the following statement about recent remarks made by Sen. Barack Obama during Tuesday's presidential debate in Ohio:
"Those who have been supporting Sen. Barack Obama should not allow what was said during the Feb. 26 presidential debate to lessen their support for his campaign. This is simply mischief making intended to hurt Mr. Obama politically."
