Author shares audio of interview with Wright claiming he was offered money to stay quiet

In a recorded interview, a man identified as the Rev. Jeremiah Wright claimed that an associate of President Obama, through an intermediary, offered him money to stop preaching during the 2008 presidential campaign.

Portions of that interview with writer Edward Klein were aired Wednesday night on Fox News’ “Hannity.” Klein provided access to the tape to back up claims he makes in his book on Obama, “The Amateur.”

In one interview clip, Wright told Klein he still has “an email offering me money not to preach at all between the explosion of the media in the first week in March and (the) November election.”
