Did Gov. Scott Walker lie to a congressional committee under oath? That’s the latest explosive question in an already charged political atmosphere, and three congressmen are seeking answers. No one – not even Walker’s opponent in the recall race, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, is ready to call it perjury —Democratic Congressman Gerry Connolly of Virginia has raised serious concerns about the truthfulness of Gov. Walker’s testimony under oath before a congressional committee.
“This is very rare because there is that video out there that raises some questions with what he said in Congress as it pertained to that donor. It is so serious to people who have raised this question, that they want to have some follow up,” Barrett said.
But lying is never quite as serious a matter when Republicans see a need to move their agenda along. Amazingly, even contradictory video proving Walker lied, proves nothing to the starkly partisan and crooked Rep. Darrell Issa:
Congressman Issa’s spokeswoman told FOX6 News in a statement: “Nothing in this letter raises questions about the accuracy of the governor’s testimony. This request has no merit, and can only be seen as intending to influence a state election.”
