So in 2010, Paul Ryan insisted on a radio show that he had not lobbied for any money for his district from the stimulus. That was a lie, as the Boston Globe and the AP demonstrated in a story from letters they obtained showing Ryan asking administration officials for money for projects back home.

So what happens after that story runs? Ryan lies about it, again. He told a local television station in Oxford, Ohio that he "never asked for stimulus."

Huffington Post follows up.


Ryan's statement directly counters the evidence of four letters obtained by the AP which the congressman wrote to Energy Secretary Steven Chu, praising energy programs supported by the stimulus and requesting funds for initiatives in his district.

Ryan's private praise for Department of Energy programs and his written requests for stimulus funds contradict not only his public criticism of the 2009 stimulus bill, but also many of the budget priorities he has laid out, including cuts to investments in green technologies.

The letters exist. In each one Ryan is writing to express his support for the grant applications and requesting "prompt and full consideration" of the applications. They're boilerplate support letters, but they are definitely support letters and in them Ryan was definitely lobbying for stimulus money. His spokesman calls it "providing a legitimate constituent service." Which it absolutely is, but it's also asking for money. Which he's now saying he didn't do.

Romney sure did find his political soul mate with Ryan. Peas in a lying pod.
