Russell Pearce Lies, Hos Hoskins Spins

Recalled state Senate President Russell Pearce is one of those guys who can lie and then believe his lie, almost immediately after he's said it.

Problem is, he's a really bad liar. In fact, his lies remind me of that quote from the Old Testament, "Be sure your sin will find you out."

And like a boomerang, they always do, particularly in Pearce's case.
