Sen. Chris Larson and Truth are not the best of friends

Sen. Chris Larson again shows why he should not be the person representing Milwaukee east side.  Trying to take political advantage of a non story concerning the 2015-2017 state budget and a $1.8 billion dollar projected shortfall, he either played loose with the truth or doesn't understand the budget process.

In either case he displayed his continued lack of judgement.  How does the State Senate minority leader with all the resources he has at his disposal not understand what the Journal-Sentinel claimed that the "size of the projected deficit to a per-person level in no way means individuals or families will have to pay those amounts".

If he did understand the simple conclusion Politifact came to and he still released his misinformation, that means he put politics ahead of truth.

The people of the 7th Senate District need to ask themselves if they want to continue to be represented by a person who does not understand the budgeting process (the biggest responsibility of the legislature) or a person who'd look them in them in the eye and be less then honest to them.

Luckily for them they will have a choice in November, Jason "Red" Arnold will be on the ballot and even though he is a political newcomer from all indications he will at least be honest with his constituents.

I'm glad to see that you feel that way. When will you write the post on how Scott Walker isn't fit for office because of his lies?

Scott Walkers lies are pretend lies.
these are real lies.
Pretend lies do not make you unfit for office.
Fake "John Doe" investigations based on a crying wife DO make you unfit for office.
reality is complex.
