Republicans say the darndest things, or 13,000 equals 4.5 million

The Palm Beach Post reports that The Wicked Witch of The East has been caught "grossly exaggerating". Hell, she's just off by a factor of 350, give or take.

WASHINGTON — On the campaign trail and in her literature, U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris boasts that, as a freshman member of Congress, she passed the American Dream Downpayment Act, "enabling 4.5 million low-income workers to own their first home while growing the U.S. economy by $256 billion."

Federal reports indicate Harris' claims are grossly exaggerated.

A Government Accountability Office report issued June 30 found that, through 2005, only $98.5 million of the $211 million Congress appropriated had been used by local governments to help more than 13,000 low-income families buy new homes — far below her claim of 4.5 million.
Previous stories in Republicans say the darndest things:

* how about $1000 for a 3 way?

* who is that bigamist?

* Ken Starr's Successor Is Busted for Stalking.

* what's new on the Grand Old Police Blotter?

* Did Porter Get his Pecker caught In Pokergate?

* An honest Republican
