First off Hannity still continue to claim that Barack Obama started his first campaign at Bill Ayers house - when in truth - he didn't. Via Politicfact.
In March 1995, Obama was named chair of the six-member Chicago Annenberg Challenge board that distributed the grants. A New York Times review of archives of the Chicago Annenberg project found that the two attended six board meetings together.
Later that year, the Ayers’ hosted a coffee at which Illinois State Sen. Alice Palmer, who planned to run for Congress, introduced Obama to some of her long-time supporters as her chosen successor. According to the New York Times story, it was one of several neighborhood events held that year on Obama’s behalf, and it was not the first. Obama campaign officials also note the event at Ayers’ home was not a fundraiser. And they claim that Obama did not know Ayers’ history with the Weather Underground at that time.
Oh and one other thing... Ayers and Dorhn were never charge or even tried for "Terrorism".
Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, also a Weather Underground member, spent years as fugitives in the 1970s, but federal riot and bombing conspiracy charges were dropped in 1974 because of illegal wiretaps and other prosecutorial misconduct.
There's no evidence that Ayers on Dohrn have done anything "Radical" let alone violent since the Vietnam War ended and the U.S. Attorney dropped all charges. Nothing. Zip. Zilch. He didn't meet Barack Obama until 21 years later - so what's the connection?
