CHICAGO (CBS) – A fiery exchange occurred Sunday between mayoral candidates Carol Moseley Braun and Patricia Van Pelt-Watkins, as allegations of drug use dominated a candidates forum.

When Watkins questioned where Braun had been for 20 years, the latter candidate fired back by saying Watkins had been using crack-cocaine.

“Patricia, the reason you didn’t know where I was for the last 20 years is because you were strung out on crack,” Braun, staring at Watkins, said at Trinity United Church of Christ on the South Side. “Now, you have admitted to that.”

This “civil” debate took place at “Rev.” Wright’s “church”.

So it’s OK now to use the same argument against Obama? Since he also admitted it?

Oh yes! At the "always classy" Trinity United church of Christ.

A bit more about Patricia Van Pelt-Watkins from Chicago Magazine ( http://www.chicagomag.com/Chicago-Magazine/Felsenthal-Files/January-2011/Patricia-Van-Pelt-Watkins-From-Poverty-and-Drugs-to-a-Mayoral-Run/ )

She’s apparently a community organizer (is that the only job available in Chicago or something?) with her own “social justice” organization. Given the track record of our current Organizer-in-Chief, can’t say I’d be thrilled to see this woman as mayor.

I will say, though, she deserves credit for getting off the junk and getting an education. Plus, she called Mosely-Braun a failure and an embarrassment, so she and I have something we can both agree on. :-)

They don't wish to vanquish the ghetto but rather turn the rest of America into one.

You are right...what higher standard to follow than that of the Pres...no birth cert, shady personal history, admitted hardcore drug use and an over inflated narcissistic ego!

So what about “separation of church and state?” Will Wright’s “church” now lose tax exemption status?

While these two idiots are sniping at one another, Rahm, with the clandestine assistance of 0, will slip in the back door. Betrayed by 0, the black community in Chicago will get what it deserves.
