FACT CHECK: Kevin Nicholson’s Problem With The Truth

Nicholson is bought-and-paid for by $17.4 million in campaign cash from Illinois billionaire Dick Uihlein, and he’s consistently proven that Wisconsinites can’t take him at his word.

MADISON — “We know a lot more about Kevin Nicholson’s track record as a Democrat than we do about his track record as a Republican.” Leah Vukmir just went there, slamming Kevin Nicholson for his glaring problem with telling the truth.

Nicholson’s lies have been stacking up for months:

  • It was UNTRUE when Nicholson claimed he left the 2000 Democratic National Convention convinced he was not a Democrat, because two years laterNicholson worked to elect Democrats in Minnesota — and five years after that, he registered to vote as a Democrat in North Carolina.
  • It was UNTRUE when Nicholson said his military service led him to leave the Democratic Party, because it’s a matter of public record that he voted in the 2008 Democratic presidential primary in North Carolina.
  • And the time Nicholson claimed to have voted “no preference” in 2008’s Democratic presidential primary? There’s NO EVIDENCE of that, either. Records prove otherwise, and non-partisan fact checking group PolitiFact has even called out Nicholson’s dishonesty.
  • Even as late as 2010, Nicholson DECLINED TO REGISTER TO VOTE AS A REPUBLICAN, Wisconsin State Journal has reported.

Despite his own lengthy record of dishonesty, Kevin Nicholson still had the nerve to call First Lady Tonette Walker a liar last month, saying there was no truth to her claim that he refused to shake hands with her son Alex, just because he works for Leah Vukmir.
