Iowa Progress: Fallon Credibility Gap Grows
Excerpted from this post at Iowa Progress
Although we find it a bit repetitive and dull writing about Ed Fallon,
one would think that the Fallon campaign would feel the same way about
lying. Unfortunately, Fallon's now endemic dishonesty was exposed
again. A Fallon press release that claimed the FEC had given Fallon a
clean bill of ethical health after mounting evidence of Fallon
committing campaign finance violations. Unfortunately, the FEC didn't.
According to FEC spokesman George Smaragdis, "no Commission employee
made any determination relative to the specific circumstances of any
campaign. Only the Commission can make such a determination." Even
prior to the FEC disavowing Fallon's claims, suspicions were raised
due to the fact Fallon never used a direct quote or cited a specific
FEC employee by name in his press release.
