PolitiFact Comes To Connie Mack’s Rescue: He Didn’t Just Work At Hooter’s, He Also Sold Ab Rockets
PolitiFact is taking a break from getting yelled at by Twitter to examine a new Bill Nelson attack ad against Connie Mack XXIII, in Florida! And since it is in Florida, it involves lots of road rage, and altercations, and boozy brawling, and boobs. In addition, it involves Hooters Girls.
First let us watch Bill Nelson's mean old ad, together!
Haha, what a jerkface! But is the ad TRUE, PolitiFact? Is it FAIR? Well, apparently PolitiFact went back and read some Wonkette posts and determined, YES, it is true AND fair -- but as always, there's a caveat!
[The ad] echoes some online attacks by Mack’s Republican primary opponent George LeMieux, who dropped out of the race in June because of Mack’s overwhelming lead in the polls and fundraising.
LeMieux claimed that Mack’s only "real job in the real world" was an events coordinator for Hooters. We ruled that Mostly False because Mack had some additional private sector jobs including selling fitness equipment.
Man, these PolitiFacters and their nits, while ignoring the important question: what kind of fitness equipment, PolitiFact? Was it something awesome, like Soloflex, or was it that thing you hook over your door, that kills you? Probably that one, right? Maybe an Ab Rocket? ! But yeah, the Nelson ad, Mostly True, half a Pinocchio, whatever.
