"Special Interest Marilyn" Caught Lying on Network Television

But Musgrave continues to lie and distort the record of Angie Paccione.

DENVER—Marilyn Musgrave has been caught in a bald-faced lie after attempting to distort the record of her opponent in Colorado’s Fourth Congressional District, State Rep. Angie Paccione.

On Wednesday morning, the very first day Musgrave’s first TV ad against Paccione aired in Colorado, Musgrave pulled the attack ad after just a few hours on the air when it was revealed that it “contained evidence which did not support the allegations,” according to a report by 9News in Denver.

Even the revised ad that aired later in the day contained statements that were “not fact” and were “false,” according to 9News.

“This isn’t news to me,” Paccione said. “Marilyn and her special-interest friends have been lying about me from day one. They’re desperate, and they’re resorting to the only thing they know: fabrications, distortions, and outright lies. She keeps lying about her record, I’ll keep telling the truth about hers.”

Paccione anticipated more of the same falsehoods from Musgrave in the coming weeks as her vulnerability grows, and said she looks forward to people hearing the truth about Musgrave’s abysmal record of caving in to special interests and powerful politicians in Congress.

“She lies about my record, and she lies about her record,” Paccione said. “If you can’t trust her to tell the truth, how can you trust her in Congress?”
