I Think The Word Is “Crapweasel.”

Linda McMahon has closed a 25-point deficit down to seven in the latest poll for the Senate race in Connecticut, and she might not be done gaining ground on Richard Blumenthal.

That’s because Blumenthal has gotten caught lying again.

From Fox News:

Already forced to apologize for saying he had served “in” Vietnam in the Marine Reserve rather than stateside, the state attorney general’s campaign for U.S. Senate is now being challenged to explain his assertion that he had “never taken PAC money” and has “rejected all special interest money.”

Federal records show that he has accepted $480,000 in political action committee money since he made that claim in January.

Blumenthal’s campaign insists he did not lie when he said in an interview on MSNBC the day after he announced he was running for the seat of retiring Sen. Chris Dodd that he had never taken PAC money. His campaign says he was referring only to his 20 years as attorney general.

It seems like every time there’s a new round of elections a guy like Blumenthal comes around, who embodies everything people can’t stand about politicians. We went from John Edwards to Chuck Schumer to Charlie Crist and now we’ve got this clown, who couples a record as either the worst or second-worst attorney general in the country with an attention-grabbing (and ultimately disastrous) persecution of AIG executives, and then his Stolen Valor act with the Marines. And now we find him claiming not to take PAC money when he’s reeled in a half-million dollars of it. From OpenSecrets.org, here’s Blumenthal’s top contributors:

McMahon might be a little undignified as a wrestling promoter running for the Senate.

Wrestling is fake.

So is Richard Blumenthal.
