Florida Representative Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, who was handpicked by President Obama to serve as chair of the Democratic National Committee, is a LIAR according to Politifact.
Politifact investigated her following claim:
“Democrats were up against nothing short of an avalanche of secret, out-of-state and corporate special interest money amounting to a massive $31 million war chest for Governor Walker compared to just $4 million on our side,” the south Florida congresswoman charged.
“In fact, the Koch brothers alone gave twice as much money to Scott Walker as the total amount of money raised by Tom Barrett.”
Politifact concluded the following:
The Koch brothers didn’t personally give any money to Walker’s campaign. There is no proof of how much Americans for Prosperity, which gets money from the Kochs but also other sources, spent on Walker’s behalf. And the leading campaign money tracker in Wisconsin estimates the AFP total as being in the $3 million range.
We rate Wasserman Schultz’s claim False.
This investigation reinforces what we at Florida RattleTale already knew to be true: Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is a LIAR.
