The Obama, Ayers "Fundraising" Lie!

From the Chicago Sun Times via Ace of Spades:
In a new afterword to his 2001 book ["Fugitive Days"], Bill Ayers, former leader of the 1960s radical group Weather Underground, describes President-elect Barack Obama as a family friend....

“We had served together on the board of a foundation, knew one another as neighbors and family friends, held an initial fund-raiser at my house, where I’d made a small donation to his earliest political campaign,” he writes....
Okay, so now Mr. Ayers has confirmed that he and Obama were "family friends". However, there's another point that needs to be made:

On October 6 of this year, the Obama campaign released a memorandum, entitled, "Will the McCain Camp be Challenged on their Lies?":

The memorandum states: "Please find, below, a list of the most common lies the McCain campaign tells about Ayers and the actual facts that prove them false."

And among those lies and facts, it states the following:
LIE: Senator Obama's political career was launched at a fundraiser hosted by Ayers.
FACT:....As the
New York Times [10/3/08] confirmed, previous coffees had been hosted for Obama's State Senate campaign. State Senator Alice Palmer, Obama's predecessor, introduced some of her longtime supporters to Obama at Ayers home. That's it. It wasn't even a fundraiser.
And on October 30, the New York Times also colluded with the Obama campaign in this farce, and wrote the following:
"An article in some editions on Monday about an appearance by William Ayers, the 1960s radical, at a symposium in Manhattan referred incorrectly to the event he held in 1995 for Barack Obama , who was then running for a seat in the Illinois Senate. It was a neighborhood gathering, not a fund-raiser."
But now we know from Bill Ayers' own pen that the aforementioned gathering was indeed, a political fundraiser. As Bill Ayers writes in the afterword to his 2001 book: “We... knew one another as neighbors and family friends, held an initial fund-raiser at my house, where I’d made a small donation to his earliest political campaign."

Hopefully, the Obama campaign will add the October 6 memorandum/smear to their "Fight the Smears" website. It's the least they can do to atone for their many blatant lies and smears.
