As he struggles to emerge from the packed Democrat field for Wisconsin’s gubernatorial primary, union boss Mahlon Mitchell appears to have a serious problem with being honest. So far, his statements on the campaign trail have been rated three times by Politifact Wisconsin and each time they were labeled “Mostly False.”
Not only has Mitchell made multiple misleading claims about his record, inflating his role in passing legislation for firefighters and distorting his past statements about Governor Walker’s reforms, but he has also made false comments about Wisconsin’s economy, ignoring the fact that the state’s unemployment rate has continued to fall to all-time lows in recent months.
This raises a serious question for Mahlon Mitchell: Why is he misleading the people of Wisconsin? Mitchell’s troubled relationship with the truth on the campaign trail further shows that he can’t be trusted to lead.
