Sen. Dick Blumenthal has a really, really bad habit of making up outlandish lies. Problem is he is also really, really bad at getting by unscathed. First, Blumenthal said he was a veteran in Vietnam, when in fact that was a lie. Now, Yid With Lid caught another flab and promptly corrects this outright fabrication of the truth from a presser on abortion rights. Blumenthal states:

I'm new to the Senate but I'm not new to this battle. Since the days of Roe v. Wade, when I clerked for Justice Blackman, as a state legislator, as attorney general, I have fought this battle.
Yes, Blumenthal did clerk for Supreme Court Justice Harry Blackman in 1974. As a little reminder, the decision on Roe v. Wade was made in...1973. Oops.
