Frank Leffingwell has scored another “Pinocchio” with his latest false attack against his opponent. First it was “junkets” now it’s “He has proposed building a wall around Williamson County, effectively shutting down economic development.”
Today, Leffingwell released a statement stating:
“He (Gravell) has proposed building a wall around Williamson County, effectively shutting down economic development.”
After fact checking this, we discovered that Leffingwell was referencing a speech given by Gravell on December 2 and has again blatantly lied about what was actually stated. On December 2, Bill Gravell spoke to a large crowd of supporters, announcing his intention to run for County Judge. In the closing of his speech, Gravell stated “we do need a border, but that border needs to be between Williamson and Travis County”. A line referencing the influx of liberal democrats moving in to Williamson County, not a”shutting down economic development” as Leffingwell stated.
It seems Leffingwell would want the same given his own city council has lost so many seats once held by conservatives to liberal democrats over the past year. Or does he?
At no time did Gravell propose “building a wall around Williamson County”, so once again, Leffingwell maintains his title as #FakeNewsFrank.
