Another politician. This time it's Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) .. who said her father died fighting the Nazi regime in Germany. Turns out he was a civilian working stateside, who died of lung cancer in '55.
Memo to all politicians -- Don't make up stuff that's so easily googled. If you're going to lie, at least make it something difficult to nail down.
Blumenthal, Kirk and Brewer, it's a bloody epidemic of lying .. and they're not even good at it. The real test of a good lie is that it doesn't come back to haunt you.
Just imagine how many lies politicians got away with before the Internet ...
Here's what happened -- Gov. Brewer told theArizona Republic that when she signed the immigration law it opened her up to what she says were "unanticipated personal attacks."
She said -- "The Nazi comments... they are awful. Knowing that my father died fighting the Nazi regime in Germany, that I lost him when I was 11 because of that... and then to have them call me Hitler's daughter. It hurts. It's ugliness beyond anything I've ever experienced."
Anyway, theArizona Guardian knows how to google .. they report that Brewer's father worked during the war as a civilian supervisor of a naval munitions depot and died of lung disease in California in 1955.
Wonder if Brewer realized that she was also claiming to be at least 76 years old?
