Fox News anchor Shepard Smith, host of the top-rated evening cable newscast, believes Americans challenging the eligibility of Barack Obama to hold the office of president are “crazies,” saying “there is no truth whatsoever” to the suggestion Obama is not a “natural born citizen.” …
Ironically, Smith himself allegedly engaged in activity some might deem questionable.
As WND previously reported, during the presidential election fiasco in November 2000, Smith was arrested at the Florida Capitol for allegedly driving his Mazda Millenia into another reporter who was standing in a parking space she attempted to save for a friend. The victim, freelance journalist Maureen Walsh of Tallahassee, was hospitalized and released later the same day with bruises on her knees and legs.
The St. Petersburg Times reported Capitol Police Sgt. Edwin Maxwell said Smith drove up and “shouted some profanities at her and basically just struck her, striking her at the knees, which threw her up on the car.”
According to NewsBlues, a witness to the incident said Smith “intentionally ran into her with his car to try and get her to move from the parking spot. She was thrown onto the hood of the car and ended up on the ground. Smith then parked the car, turned off the engine, turned to the crews assisting the reporter and said “f— you” and walked into the state capital. Police and paramedics were called.”
