Mr. ‘Goeb,’ meet Mr. Dewhurst
David Dewhurst hatched a video ad hammering Dan Patrick’s personal bankruptcy of some years ago.
We spotted some curious factual claims:
--That Patrick changed his name, from Dannie Goeb, to hide from his debts, per Dewhurst. Patrick changed his name years after his debt troubles. Pants on Fire!
--Firing back, Patrick said Dewhurst owes more than $1 million to vendors from his 2012 U.S. Senate run. Those debts are his campaign debts and there’s a wrinkle involving a former Dewhurst adviser whose former house is for sale, with proceeds possibly covering the campaign's bills. Mostly True.
Watch Dewhurst’s ad to the right, just below these latest fact checks.
