Rev Wright Says Obama Tried To Pay For His Silence
The Reverend Wright scandal continues to plague the Obama campaign as new allegations of bribery surfaced over the weekend. In an interview, Reverend Jeremiah Wright - the controversial pastor of the church Obama attended for more than 20 years - claims that the president's campaign workers offered him "hush money" to disappear from the public eye. Wright also claims that Obama himself visited with Wright and tried to persuade him into accepting the money.
$150,000 was the amount of money offered to Wright in return for bowing out of impending speaking engagements.
