Transparency: William Ayers was at the White House but not the William Ayers - Updated

Via Karl on Twitter: Is this transparency? Yes, William Ayers, Michael Moore, Jeremiah Wright and Malik Shabazz were all at the White House. By extreme coincidence, however, they were all "false positives," and not the famous folks who share the same name. Who believes another Jeremiah Wright just so happened to make it to the White House?

A lot of people visit the White House, up to 100,000 each month, with many of those folks coming to tour the buildings. Given this large amount of data, the records we are publishing today include a few “false positives” – names that make you think of a well-known person, but are actually someone else. In September, requests were submitted for the names of some famous or controversial figures (for example Michael Jordan, William Ayers, Michael Moore, Jeremiah Wright, Robert Kelly ("R. Kelly"), and Malik Shabazz). The well-known individuals with those names never actually came to the White House. Nevertheless, we were asked for those names and so we have included records for those individuals who were here and share the same names.

UPDATED:  to include link to mistakenly not included in original post.
UPDATE II:  Allahpundit links the records and points out it is unlikely William Ayers actually went to the White House.  Maybe it is a coincidence, maybe.  He does point out another interesting visitor though:

Do take a moment to skim the visitor logs, though. I haven’t double-checked, but according to Patrick Ruffini, the name that appears most frequently on there is — surprise — demagogic SEIU thug-in-chief Andy Stern.
