Overtime, and pretty quickly now, it’ll make sense to keep a list of stuff like this. On Friday night’s Bill Maher show, Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA) claimed that Barack Obama refuses to say the pledge of allegiance to the American flag. This along with other bogus claims about Obama come from the hoax emails circulating on the internet.

If you see any local or national media outlets asking Kingston about this or if you get a word out of him, please let us know.

Of course, last night, the Associated Press signed on to the Obama hoax email train.
