Ros-Lehtinen Caught on Tape

Think Progress, Congresswoman Caught In Lie Over Castro Assassination Claim details how my Congressperson has, it seems, been caught in a bare-faced lie.

She says a video tape was doctored to make it look like she was calling for Castro’s assassination when in fact she wasn’t. The filmmakers have released the raw video which supports their story not hers and asked her to retract the slur on their integrity. We’re still waiting on that one.

Anyone who’s followed Ros-Lehtinen’s career will know that the anti-Castro remarks seem in character (and are probably shared by a substantial fraction of her electors).

I wish I thought this flap will affect her re-election chances in ’08, but I doubt it.
