Claire McCaskill is lying to you again

Claire McCaskill tried to deflect attention away from her family’s investments in a Cayman Islands hedge fund by pointing to her support for the Stop Tax Haven Abuse Act. Only problem? McCaskill pulled her support for that bill all the way back in 2011.

The Free Beacon reports that while McCaskill did cosponsor the legislation in 2009, she pulled her support in the next Congress, incidentally right before she and her husband invested at least a million in the Caymans, a well-known tax haven. So McCaskill’s defense basically boils down to “I was against tax havens, right up until the time I started making millions from them.”

Good luck selling that one to Missouri.
