It's Now Official, Politicians Can Lie! (update)

With enough funding the lie can be expanded to match the Goebbels dictum that, If you tell

 a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.

From the DDN 13/12/14 Beagle had more than $1.6 for state Senate re-election bid

The Lie:
Beagle Ads Continue Bogus Claim
New television ads for Republican state Sen. Bill Beagle continue making the false claim that Dee Gillis, his democratic opponent for the 5th District Senate seat, raised her own pay on the Tipp City Council.
The Facts:
Ohio Law states that the salary of any officer of a city shall not be increased or diminished during the term for which he [sic]was elected or appointed.
The Rationale:
A federal judge in Cincinnati has struck down, as unconstitutional an Ohio election law that banned candidates or independent organizations from lying in political campaigns.
