Campaign: Michelle Obama never used word 'Whitey'

clipped from
Democrat Barack Obama's campaign said Thursday
that Michelle Obama never used the word "whitey" in a speech from
the church pulpit as it launched a Web site to debunk rumors about
him and his wife.
The rumor that Michelle Obama railed against "whitey" in a
diatribe at Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ has
circulated on conservative Republican blogs for weeks and was
repeated by radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh. The rumor included
claims of a videotape of the speech that would be used to bring
down Obama's candidacy this fall.
"No such tape exists," the campaign responds on the site, "Michelle Obama has not spoken from the
pulpit at Trinity and has not used that word."
