For those of you who might have problem reading what is shown in in the photo, here is the text:
"I have been, and I always will be, against the streetcar and privatizing our parking meters and garages." - John Cranley
Since this is in quotation marks, I am taking this as a direct quote from John Cranley and therefore why it can so clearly be declared a full on Lie.
There are no dances around this. There are no dodges. There is no doublespeak that can untie the clear lie John Cranley and his campaign have disseminated to the people of Cincinnati.
Sure, Cranley will likely blame this on his campaign staff, but he can't claim it is not dishonest, if he didn't say what is quoted. So either John Lied, or someone on his staff lied. Let's face facts, if Cranley hired a liar, then that provides yet another example of his bad judgement of character. I would bet that this is instead something he's said often on the campaign trail. If you've heard this from his or one of his supports lips, please chime in on comments below.
Oh, might want to know how I know this a lie? Well of all days to get this in the mail Cranley chose to send this to me on the day I WROTE A STORY ABOUT WHEN CRANLEY VOTED IN FAVOR OF THE STREETCAR. If I were Alanis Morissete, I might find this ironic.
