Alberta Darling: Pants on Fire Liar Rating from Politifact
Of all the ridiculous statements from Alberta Darling during the recall campaigns, perhaps the most absurd, out-of-touch, and frankly, gross, is her insistence that ”Sandy Pasch uses taxpayer dollars to pay for Viagra.” Not surprisingly, Politifact rated her a pants on fire liar for this.
Scotty’s Trouble Telling the Truth
Most people blew off that article at the time because a) Holloway’s transition to County Exec was a mess anyway and b) despite plenty of evidence to suggest his shadiness, apparently it wasn’t well-enough established yet that Scott Walker lies. A lot. Like all the time. But now that his pattern of lies is becoming more commonly-known, I wonder if the issue would raise more eyebrows. I’ve never seen this topic covered beyond the Journal Sentinel, and Holloway certainly didn’t make a smooth transition so I doubt we’ll ever know the truth, but I can’t help but wonder. Will people ever be able to take what he says at face-value again?
