Contrary to what I wrote earlier today, Mona Charen did not err when she referred to Andrew Breitbart’s offer of a $10,000 reward to anyone producing video of racial epithets being shouted at Reps. Emanuel Cleaver et al. as they made their way to the Capitol on March 20,2010. As I am reminded through Jack Cashill’s video Capitol Hill Conspiracy (below), Andrew’s initial offer was indeed in the amount of $10,000. Andrew later upped his offer to $100,000 when he drew no takers. My apologies to the great Mona Charen. Coincidentally, looking through our archives on this point, I came across my post “Leave it to Mona,” on a related point.
