Joe Wilson Explains His Actions, Asks For Campaign Cash (VIDEO)

Joe Wilson is not letting his notoriety go to waste.

Not to be outdone by his potential opponent for Congress in 2010, Rob Miller, who has raised more than $350,000 since Wilson's now infamous "You Lie" outburst, the congressman has a new video in which he explains his behavior and then goes on to ask for... campaign cash.

"Last night I let my emotions get the best of me on the critical issue of health care," Wilson said in the video. He was sorry for what he did, he explained, but he was also a victim for speaking out against the health care plan and is thus asking people to "Stand with Joe."

"They want to silence anyone who speaks out against it. They made it clear they want to defeat me and pass the plan. I need your help now... Contribute to my effort to defeat the proponents of government-run health care. "
