AP: "South Carolina Republican Rep. Joe Wilson shouted “You lie!” after Obama had talked about illegal immigrants."

President Obama was trying to set the record straight that health care reform would not include undocumented immigrants and not involve killing grandmas, something that GOP members of Congress have been lying about now for weeks.

Rob Miller (@RobMillerUSMC), a veteran of the Marine Corps, is the Democrat looking to unseat him. You can donate to him on ActBlue. He’s already raised over $3000 $5000 $11000 $45000 $1,000,000.

This is the official campaign twitter account for Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02). http://joewilsonforcongress.com/

This is Rep. Joe Wilson’s official statement, as reported by Politico:

“This evening I let my emotions get the best of me when listening to the President’s remarks regarding the coverage of illegal immigrants in the health care bill. While I disagree with the President’s statement, my comments were inappropriate and regrettable. I extend sincere apologies to the President for this lack of civility.”
