The domestic terrorist, Bill Ayers, still wanted for questioning in San Francisco in the bombing death of a police officer, spoke at Montclair State University in New Jersey Thursday night.

Tea Party activists made up at least half of the audience and questioned Ayers on a number of issues.

The most startling revelation of the night was his claim that he wrote “Dreams from My Father”, Barack Obama’s first book.

A reporter recounts the exchange:

The most astounding thing that Ayers said came toward the end of the question-and-answer session. A local Tea Party member asked Ayers to comment on the quality of Obama’s autobiography, Dreams of my Father. Ayers said,

I think [Dreams] was a very good book, but [Obama’s] second book is a prize example of political hackery. And by the way, I wrote that first book.

The participant asked,

You wrote that?

Ayers replied:

You help me prove that, and I’ll split the royalties with you.

Here’s the video:

This is not the first time Bill Ayers has claimed to be the author of “Dreams of My Father”.  He made the same claim in October of 2009!
