On September 6, the Million American March Against Fear on 9/11, previously known as the Million Muslim March, announced that Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) will speak at the event. There's only one problem: His office told the Clarion Project that they didn't even know about it.
Michele Rooney, Rep. Cleaver's Communications Director, told the Clarion Project on September 9 that the announcement is unexpected and false.
"As for participation in the Million American March Against Fear on 9/11 in Washington D.C.—the Congressman is not participating in the event. I have spoken to both of his schedulers … and neither were aware of the event and have already scheduled a full day for him with other activities, remembrances, and observances," she said.
