Yet Another Set Of “If The Perps Were Democrats This Would Be All Over The Evening News” Stories

Posted by Phoenix Woman on October 26, 2012

— Looks like Paul Ryan may have illegally spent about $75,000 of his Congressional campaign money on presidential election campaign activities during the 2012 Republican National Convention in August.

— Looks like, as Brad DeLong says, that Mitt Romney got caught lying under oath on the witness stand about a material fact:

Mitt Romney testified under oath in 1991 that the ex-wife of Staples founder Tom Stemberg got a fair deal in the couple’s 1988 divorce, even though the company shares Maureen Sullivan Stemberg received were valued at a tenth of Staples’ stock price on the day of its initial public offering only a year later.
