Obama Campaign Draws Support From Shady Characters
August 27, 2012 by Bryan Nash
If the Democratic Party endorses the views of its supporters, then Vice President Joe Biden must think rape is a laughing matter and President Barack Obama must think itâ€™s OK to shoot those who interfere with a back-alley drug deal. The Nationâ€™s top leaders recently made appearances with Senator Al Franken andÂ NBA star Carmello Anthony.
Last week, Biden shared the stage with Franken, a former â€śSaturday Night Liveâ€ť writer who joked about raping a reporter.
â€śI give pills to Lesley Stahl. Then, when Lesleyâ€™s passed out, I take her to the closet and rape her,â€ť joked Franken, as reported by New York magazine in 1995. â€śWhen she passes out, I put her in various positions and take pictures of her.â€ť
Anthony appeared at the â€śObama Classic,â€ť a fundraising event attended by some of the biggest names in basketball. In 2004, Anthony was seen in a DVD titled â€śStop Snitchinâ€ť alongside drug dealers who threatened that anyone who interfered with their enterprise would â€śget a hole in his head.â€ť
