You no doubt remember the Senate candidate for Connecticut’s seat, Richard Blumenthal who falsely claimed for years that he had served in Vietnam when in fact he didn’t. Well, it seems he’s in trouble for more games with the language.
He claimed in January that he had never taken political action committee money.
Federal records show that he has accepted $480,000 in political action committee money since he made that claim in January. Moreover, his Republican opponent, former World Wrestling Entertainment CEO Linda McMahon, points to nearly $17,000 Blumenthal received as a state legislative candidate in the 1980s — a figure Blumenthal’s campaign does not dispute.
Blumenthal’s campaign insists he did not lie — as McMahon says — when he said in an interview on MSNBC the day after he announced he was running for the seat of retiring Sen. Chris Dodd that he had never taken PAC money. His campaign says he was referring only to his 20 years as attorney general.
Quantifying “never”. If they lie about their military service, they’ll lie about anything. So do those veterans who stood on stage with Blumenthal want to continue blowing smoke up the collective ass of Connecticut voters?
