Journal Times, Van Wanggaard's big time mouthpiece, Scott Kelly said Van was never invited to the Recall Forum held at the Bray Center in Racine last night.
Who can blame him for being miffed, every news channel in Wisconsin was there, plus the Journal Sentinel, WGTD and Associated Press.
Even Republicans and Independents running for Governor were there to debate.
Scott Kelly said the organizers from Wisconsin Citizen Action, NAACP and Racine Interfaith Coalition were lying when they said Wanggaard had been sent an invite.
Well, some folks don't like to be called liars - and this isn't the first time Van has cried wolf over failing to debate John Lehman.
Smarter organizers appeared to have mailed the invitation by certified letter this time and to Wanggaard's home address -oops!
Van Wanggaard can't be honest about the simplest things. He tried to deceive the public about his secrecy oath, he tried to deceive the public about the Police and Fire Commission and he's tried again by saying he wasn't invited to debate when he clearly was.
John Lehman was on Ben Meren's radio program this afternoon - another chance to have a discussion and Wanggaard was a no-show - making it two days in a row.
We got a copy of Van's original invitation from Wisconsin Citizen Action - it looks like a good event.
Too bad Van didn't have the balls to show up.
