Walker is biggest liar again

Postby Shorty » Mon Aug 26, 2013 9:21 pm

Walker was able to repeat his win from last year.

Politifact: Scott Walker America's Most Untruthful Governor
http://www.uppitywis.org/blogarticle/po ... l-governor

"Of all the governors that Politifact has rated at least 10 times for truthfulness, Scott Walker has the dubious distinction of being the most untruthful. Only 23% of Walker's 72 statement were rated "true" or "mostly true," while 77% were rated "half true," "mostly false," "false" or "pants on fire."

Here's the top five:
1.) Scott Walker, WI (23%)
2.) Rick Perry, TX (27%)
3.) Rick Scott, FL (31%)
4.) Lincoln Chafee (36%)
5.) Chris Christie (38%)

This is the second year in a row that Scott Walker has brought home the dishonesty gold as the nation's least truthful governor."

The problem is, there are way too many people who will never turn off Faux News to read real news and see how many times they were lied to.

From the article:

All this attention seemed to concern the Walker administration.

Walker's press secretary, Tom Evenson, called Newswatch 12 on Tuesday, and asked if we could be persuaded to take Monday's story off our website.


So not only is he a big fat liar, he doesn't much care for other people telling the truth.
