Another - - Yes, Another - - Walker "False" Rating Via PolitiFact: Anyone Keeping Score?

This one is for giving a national TV audience overstated and false information about how union leaders had explained Walker's plan to mandate health and pension contributions.

And just a few days ago, PolitiFact rated false a separate claim Walker made - - that one was on the relative size of Wisconsin's deficit - - on the same TV show.

More than a pattern, it seems. Habit.

FWIW, I always look at who wrote it. Usually imho, the worst politifacts are done by an editor, James Nelson. I'm assuming he doesn't belong to the union.

IIRC, Dave Umhoefer wrote this one.
