Phil fudging figures? For real.

Garren Shipley - July 18, 2018

Shocking news from Washington today. Phil Bredesen is playing fast and loose with his claims about fighting meth in Tennessee, according to the Washington Post, earning three Pinnochios:

“… [T]he fact is that Tennessee’s meth problem was not “cut in half” under his watch. Measuring the number of meth lab incidents or seizures from 2005 to 2007 is very convenient but rather misleading, especially since these figures began to climb in 2008 and continued to rise through the end of Bredesen’s term as governor."

"Moreover, the DEA’s figures on meth lab incidents or seizures may not be as reliable a gauge of the 'meth problem' as they once were. One-pot meth makers don’t need a meth lab to ply their trade. Mexican drug cartels aren’t making their meth in the United States."

“The next thing you know, they’ll be telling us that Phil lied about self funding his campaign. Oh, wait.” — Garren Shipley, RNC spokesman
