For whatever odd reason, the worst they could come up with was to say Russ Feingold announced his candidacy for senate from California. To WISGOP, that was the right amount of red meat-right wing hooey to get Dumb Ron Johnson supporters energized. Only they made it up, as PolitiFact discovered:
The National Republican Senatorial Committee said that Russ Feingold announced his campaign for Senate while in California. But tweets and other evidence shows he was in Wisconsin at the time.But that wasn't the end of it:
We rate the claim Pants on Fire.
Republicans would continue to emphasize Feingold’s out of state job and have assigned a "tracker" to follow Feingold when he is in California. On May 21, 2015, they posted and tweeted videos of Feingold walking to his class.If this mindless video is any indication, Republicans can't dig up anything on Feingold, except to say he's like Scott Walker and Paul Ryan, a career politician? Forget about his work as a college professor and envoy. I love the cameraman's questions:
Even Scott Walker, presidential candidate (unannouced), thought it was important to mention Feingold's announcement from California. What other bullshit will he swallow hook-line-and-sinker when he's deciding to take our country to war? This guy is so not ready. His comment is around :18 sec in. Like Walker said in the clip below, he's "fully engaged?"
