Another Vice Presidential Lie Confirmed
From Cheney’s Meet the Press appearance on Sept. 14, 2003:
CHENEY: …And since I left Halliburton to become George Bush’s vice president, I’ve severed all my ties with the company, gotten rid of all my financial interests. I have no financial interest in Halliburton of any kind and haven’t had now for over three years.
And now from today’s Washington Post:
A Congressional Research Service report released yesterday concluded that federal ethics laws treat Vice President Cheney’s annual deferred compensation checks and unexercised stock options as continuing financial interests in the Halliburton Co.
Oops. Add that to the list from last week.
