Nearly 100,000 jobs? You get "Pants On Fire Politifacted" when you're Liar, Liar.
Walker said the state has created "just under 100,000" jobs since he took office. He arrived at that number by combining full and partial years of census data.It's part of a bigger picture, and pattern, but this one takes the cake.
However, several within his own administration, including his primary spokesman, have said that is the wrong way to measure jobs -- you can’t combine partial and full year data sets. As one aide said: It would be "misrepresenting the truth."
By his administration’s own yardstick, his statement is false. We think it’s ridiculous to -- after private admonitions -- publicly present it this way. Pants on Fire.
