Once, Twice, Three Times A Liar

Scott Walker is a compulsive liar.  Even when he doesn't have to lie, he does.  And even when he knows he'll be found out to be lying, he still does.

One of the more recent examples was when he tried to tell the people that he "found" all sorts of savings and because of that, he would lift the caps on Family Care.  The truth was that the federal government forced him to do it.

Now, there's a more recent example.

On Friday, his campaign issued a press release, complete with grammatical errors, regarding Walkergate.  In it, he tried to make himself appear the Eagle Scout and was just trying to help out the cause of justice:

Over the last 20 months, District Attorney John Chisholm has been conducting an examination of issues in connection with former employees of Milwaukee County. Throughout that time, our campaign has cooperated with requests for information.  
My cooperation in this matter extends beyond a willingness to supply any and all requested documents. I have already said that I would be happy to sit down with the people looking into these issues and answer any additional questions they may have. To make that point clear, last year, my representatives voluntarily contacted Mr. Chisholm’s office to arrange a time to discuss any outstanding issues. I will be voluntarily meeting with Mr. Chisholm.  
To assemble additional background information, I hired counsel to insure [sic] that I am in the best position possible to continue aiding the inquiry. These attorneys, Mike Steinle and John Gallo, have been reviewing a great deal of material from the past few years, but no public money has been used or will be used for these purposes.  
While all of us need to let this matter run its course, I will continue to cooperate and provide any appropriate information that is requested. 
However, today it's a different story, as reported by Dan Bice:

Gov. Scott Walker acknowledged Monday that prosecutors initiated the upcoming meeting they will have with him as part of the John Doe investigation about activities that occurred during Walker's tenure as Milwaukee County executive. 
"Up until now, we've provided written documentation (from the campaign)," Walker said during a briefing with reporters in Waukesha. "They'd like to talk to us about what they've found and what additional help we can provide."
Even funnier is this line from TMJ4's report:
Walker says his lawyers are examining thousands of emails his campaign has turned over to the DA. He said he hired the lawyers because it would take him too much time to do that work.
Not to mention a dumpster full of hidden files, eh, Walker?

I bet the trifecta in the big lies will be when Walker said, "I am not John Doe."
