Manipulated Jobs Reports?
Another possible asterisk for Obama’s re-election.
Leading up to the 2012 presidential election, the unemployment rate declined to 7.8% from 8.1%, which we questioned at the time. Now, there’s a report that fake numbers were injected into those pre-election unemployment reports resulting in a lower headline rate. Congress may even now investigate. And if it’s true that unemployment reports were manipulated to aid Obama’s re-election, it would add to his lies about Benghazi and al-Qaida, as well as IRS targeting of his political opponents, to cast further doubt and illegitimacy to the 2012 results. It brings little comfort to see that, if the election were held today, Romney would win.
