Now the Only Evidence That Jon Kyl Lied About Planned Parenthood Will Be the Entire Internet


A couple of weeks after claiming that abortions account for "well over 90 percent of what Planned Parenthood does" — it's actually 3 percent — and then explaining that he had actually never intended to make a "factual statement," Arizona senator Jon Kyl has edited the congressional record to make his remark more factual:

Sen. Jon Kyl has quietly removed his infamous comment that 90 percent of Planned Parenthood's business is abortion from the Congressional Record. Senators are allowed to revise and extend their comments in record and his statement now simply says: "If you want an abortion you go to Planned Parenthood and that is what Planned Parenthood does." Kyl's office could not be reached for comment.

Nobody tell Kyl about the Internet; it will make him so sad.
