Republicans Tampered With Court Audio in Obama Attack Ad

A Republican Party Internet advertisement altered the audio of U.S. Supreme Court oral arguments in an attack on President Barack Obama’s health-care law.

In a web ad circulated this week, the Republican National Committee excerpts the opening seconds of the March 27 presentation by Obama’s top Supreme Court lawyer, Solicitor General Donald Verrilli. In the ad, he is heard struggling for words and twice stopping to drink water.
