Here's some friendly advice for the GOP candidate running for governor in Arizona: Tell the truth about your work experience. There's this newfangled thing called-- say it with me now-- doc-u-men-ta-tion. People can research stuff. Your stuff. So if you fudge the facts, you're bound to get caught.
If you continue to defend the fudge-itude, you'll hear about it.
And when the Daily Caller-- a politically conservative news and opinion website founded by Tucker Carlson-- calls you out on it, you might want to rethink your strategy. A GOP candidate challenged by a GOP site is in GOP trouble:
If you listen to past statements made by Christine Jones, you might come away with the impression that the Republican candidate for governor of Arizona is a former Los Angeles prosecutor. You might also think she is an Air Force veteran.
The problem: Neither of those things are 100 percent true.
Here's how her spokeswoman Anna Haberlein explained away the discrepancies: “Christine isn’t a practiced politician; she hasn’t dedicated her life to parsing every word.”
Or to put it another way, she's lacking the experience to have what it takes to be a convincing liar. She's not good enough at it... yet.
Christine Jones claimed she was a Los Angeles D.A. in testimony before Congress. But she has "never been a paid employee of the Los Angeles District Attorney Office or even been admitted to the bar in California." She was an "unpaid" law clerk for the D.A.’s office back in the nineties. However, she still swearstogod she was a prosecutor.
She also said, per the report, that she served in the Air Force:
The truth is that she was never actually in the service, though she did take part in the Air Force ROTC while at the University of Oklahoma. The Department of Defense has no record of Jones ever serving in the Air Force, according to a FOIA request provided to The Daily Caller by one critic.
When you stop and think about it, if it turns out that Jones has been lying, then she is more than qualified to hold office.
