CQ pushes RNC Lies!

The Kennedy Attack Machine continues to push blatant and knowingly misleading lies being funneled out of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. The latest incident involves Congressional Quarterly:
The National Republican Senatorial Committee, which is backing Kennedy, said that violent crime increased 35 percent in the county during Klobuchar's tenure.
FACT, violent crime in the country during Amy's tenure has DECREASED
Mitch 'n Co. are being disingenuous to try to pin the increases in MPLS crime on a county attorney who, through the most recent available data, has REDUCED Hennepin County serious crime by 36% from '97 to 2004

Minneapolis Crime rates are also down 30% from 1997 to 2005
Now the NRSC may be referring to the flawed numbers later corrected by even KvM that came out recently. But those figures were only for Minneapolis and do NOT cover Amy's complete tenure.

Will we see a correction on KvM or CQ? I won't hold my breath!


UPDATE: Fresh post regarding CQ's revision.
