How do you know a politician is lying?

The punchline goes, “because his lips are moving.” The following article exemplifies that. 

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that several Republican state representatives voted against bringing major ethics reform to the Assembly floor. The ethics reform bill, 2005 Senate Bill 1, was introduced by State Senator Mike Ellis (R-Neenah) and approved by the State Senate. Yet Assembly Representatives Mike Huebsch (R-West Salem), Eugene Hahn (R-Cambria), and Judy Krawczyk (R-Green Bay) all voted against bringing this bill to the light of day. Now they are touting that they support ethics reform in their campaign literature.

So now you know when a politician is lying.
