Emanuel Cleaver Sprayed Upon - Not Spit Upon Video Proof

Now we have video proof of the Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) claim that a member of a Tea Party protestor spit on him is not exactly accurate. As these jokers, or members of the Congressional Black Caucus prefer to be called, walked through the crowd, Cleaver said he was spit upon. The odd thing was, there was no arrest with a Capitol Hill policewoman walking with him, there were no charges brought by Cleaver because he couldn't i.d. the guy...and there was no "spitting," but seems there was some "spraying." See the video below.

At about 1:15 in the video, you can see a man with his hands cupped and Cleaver walking by. As the man yelled, it appears from Cleaver's body language, some saliva "sprayed."

We're all human. This could happen and it isn't pleasant when it happens to you, but hardly represents "spitting," which would be a conscious act.

Note that you also hear not a single "n" word being shouted, although Rep. Carson (D-IN) claims he heard it 15 times.
