According to the Huffington Post, a Black blogger and radio host is claiming that sources close to him informed him that White House officials made numerous calls to Georgia government officials to find out if the president can halt the Troy Davis execution.

The blogger claims that his source informed him that the White House spent 3 days trying to get involved in the case.

White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer told Politico that the report was completely untrue. According to Politico, a number of black radio hosts attended an off-the-record meeting with the president, and that while Obama was pressed on the Davis issue, he told the group that his hands were tied.

“That article was completely, 100 percent wrong,” American Urban Radio Networks radio host April Ryan told Politico. Obama, she told the website, was “unequivocal” that there was “nothing he could do” in the case, adding that Obama did tell the group that in general, he had concerns about innocent death row inmates.
