Lee Supports 'Fan' Obama
Movie director Spike Lee is switching his allegiance from Hillary Clinton to her Democrat Presidential rival Barack Obama, after discovering the Illinois Senator is a fan of his films.
Lee backed Bill Clinton in two elections and intended to support his wife in her battle for the White House.
But the Malcolm X filmmaker was put off by Clinton's recent false claim that she came under sniper fire in Bosnia.
He tells New York magazine, "The Clintons man, they would lie on a stack of Bibles. Snipers? That's not misspeaking; that's pure bulls**t. I voted for Clinton twice, but that's over with."
And Lee admits he has been won over by Obama: "Barack told me the first date he took Michelle (his wife) to was Do The Right Thing."
