It's just hanging in the air there, someone is dying to just start screaming. Probably Bernstein.
In other words, he straight up lied, and stupid lies at that.
The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday evening that an anti-tax organization founded by Kentucky Republican Senate candidate Rand Paul, which he has referred to as an active group as recently as this week, was legally dissolved in 2000 after failing to file basic annual reports with the state, and ceased most activity in 2002.
The campaign for Paul's Democratic opponent, Attorney General Jack Conway, said Paul was "simply misleading voters" for playing up his affiliation with the group, Kentucky Taxpayers United, long after it suspended most of its activities, besides occasional public appearances by Paul or an associate who also did work for the group.
Paul has also previously indicated that the group collected money from members, which conflicts with statements his campaign press secretary made to the Wall Street Journal that the group had "thousands of supporters, but never collected dues."
