On MSNBC moments ago, host Andrea Mitchell brought up the 1998 comments President Obama “allegedly” made at Loyola University signaling that he agreed with wealth redistribution.

The audio file was released on YouTube earlier this week and featured on the Drudge Report.

Mitchell brought on Obama campaign press secretary Ben LaBolt to respond, but added that she would not air the clip.

“I should point out that NBC and MSNBC, we have not verified the accuracy of that tape from Loyola so we are not playing it.” Mitchell said.

“I think the trick is figuring out how do we structure government systems that pool resources and hence, facilitate some redistribution because I actually believe in redistribution, at least at a certain level to make sure everybody’s got a shot,” Obama says in the clip.
