    “The paid liars have yet to settle on a plausible story for Uboldass liar’s public disgrace. We really don’t want to say more until we change the subject from the arrogant ex-senator (who does not have a clue what public service means) to the whistleblower (who publicized the ex-senator’s views about the very public he never served).”
