Politicians shouldn’t tell lies. But they especially shouldn’t tell really silly lies that can be easily proven with Google or a few craft TPM Readers. As Christina Bellantoni noted yesterday, Republican senate candidate Scott Brown said yesterday (see “Late Update” below) that he wasn’t even familiar with the Tea Party movement, let alone a part of it. But then last night our readers found pictures and video of Brown from his own website addressing Tea Party events back in April.
And now it turns out he was the guest of honor at an official Tea Party “Breakfast with Brown” only a week and a half ago.
Late Update: Alas, it seems the Boston Globe just had it wrong in the original report. Brown ducked the question of his ties to the Tea Party movement. But he didn’t really say he wasn’t familiar with it.
