Republican U.S. Senate nominee Joe O’Dea had a lot to say recently in an interview with the right-wing rag The Washington Examiner, including a strong allegation that Democrats are lying about something he says himself.
Here’s the key part from a story published on July 3 in the Examiner:
He said the Democrats are “trying to lie to people, now, telling them I’m pro-life. But I’m not.”
There’s no ambiguity there. Listen to it yourself:
O’Dea has also made it clear that he would have supported all of former President Trump‘s nominees to the U.S. Supreme Court; regardless of where O’Dea dances around on the issue of abortion rights, as a U.S. Senator he would have done nothing that might have changed or disrupted the eventual overturning of Roe v. Wade.
As for this interview with the Examiner, we have a hard time understanding what O’Dea is trying to accomplish. Joe O’Dea is already on the record CALLING HIMSELF “pro-life.”
The only thing that constitutes a “lie” in this case is the story that O’Dea is telling to himself.
