Happening now on CNN: An angry press-core is going through photocopies of Air National Guard payroll records which they categorize as "unreadable".
The situation in the pressroom is hostile as the release of these "documents" seem to have made matters worse.
White House spokesman Scott McClellan said the payroll records from the Air Reserve Personnel Center in Denver, Colorado, will include documents and
dates of payment.
McClellan said the president would not have been paid if he had not shown up for drills -- as some critics such as Democratic National Committee
Chairman Terry McAuliffe have suggested.
"He was paid for the days he served in the Air National Guard," McClellan said. "That's why I said that these records clearly document that the
president fulfilled his duties."
