Bonner & Associates lying about letter-forging scandal.

About the only thing that astroturfing PR firm Bonner & Associates has had going for them in their ongoing letter-forging scandal is that they immediate contacted all of the organizations from whom they faked letters to Rep. Tom Perriello. They’ve said over and over again that they immediately owned up to the error as soon as they spotted it, that it was their initiative that made this public. It turns out they’re lying. The local chapter of the NAACP, JABA, and the Senior Center all say that they’ve never heard a word from Bonner & Associates. Likewise, Perriello’s office never heard anything from the lobbyists.

When getting caught lying by Congress, it’s best not to respond by lying about that lie.
