Republican blog, National Journal wrote that Mitch McConnell put 42 earmarks in the Omnibus Bill that McConnell claims to be against. Mitch McConnell's office is claiming Democrats put McConnell's 42 Earmarks in the Omnibus bill... that's right, McConnell's office is telling callers that Democrats put his (McConnell's) 42 Earmarks in the Omnibus Bill
A friend told me that when they phoned McConnell's office they said McConnell had not read the Bill and the "democrats put 42 earmarks in the Bill with McConnell's name."
I phoned McConnell's office to judge for myself (DC phone: 202-224-2541) and sure enough, his office is telling people that "Democrats wrote the Omnibus Bill and McConnell does not know how 42 earmarks, with his name on them, got in the Bill.
I urge anyone & everyone to call his office and hear it for themselves. The McConnell comment has taken political lies to a new low.
