At a town hall meeting held by Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.), an attendee accused President Barack Obama of “sedition” because he lied to voters. The constituent believes Obama has political allegiance to “socialism, communism and Nazism” and yet Rep. Walsh chose to remain silent and not challenge the claim. The Huffington Post reports:

Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) held another lively town hall meeting this weekend, playing host to a constituent who accused President Barack Obama of “sedition” because he had allegedly lied to voters about his true political allegiances to “socialism, communism and Nazism.”

In a discussion about health care reform, a woman told Walsh that she believed the United States was losing its freedom because of elected officials who were falsifying their ideologies to get elected.

“It is sedition. I mean, they did it underground. If they are honest brokers and they believe in what they’re saying and where they want this country to go, like Obama, then you’re right. He should have said it before he was elected, and said ‘I’m a socialist, I believe in socialism, in communism, Nazism,’ whatever, and say ‘this is where I want to lead the country’ — not do it underhandedly,” she said.
