John Garamendi: Dumbest false claim of the political TV ad season?

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

Sacramento area Congressman John Garamendi, whose district stretches into the East Bay, finally pulled this attack ad that began airing last week for the phony claim it makes . . . about an office chair. The ad falsely claims that his GOP opponent and Colusa County supervisor Kim Vann had the county buy her a $4,000 chair.

Capitol Alert distills the truth of the matter into a sentence:

The county spent roughly $4,000 on chairs in the 2007-2008 fiscal year, but not on a single seat for Vann.
