Carly Fiorina Lies to Fox, Has a Bri-Wi Problem

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by TexasTowelie (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: Huffington Post

Carly Fiorina has a big problem with the truth. More specifically, she has a problem with embellishing the truth, in a manner very reminiscent of disgraced NBC anchor Brian Williams.

On Friday, conservative radio host Sean Hannity asked Fiorina to explain stories that Hewlett-Packard violated in the Iran embargo, by selling millions of dollars of computers, parts and equipment through a Dubai-based company, while she was CEO.

"The SEC did a thorough investigation and concluded that no one in management, myself included, knew anything about it," Fiorina told Hannity.

...

Yes, except the SEC investigation didn't. In fact, the SEC didn't perform an investigation at all, especially one that cleared her of any knowledge of the affair.

6. Maddow is on the other Fiorina lies story: "Caught in a fib, Fiorina refuses to acknowledge misstep"

link to the Maddow blog:

At last week’s Republican debate, Carly Fiorina described a Planned Parenthood video showing “a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking, while someone says, ‘We have to keep it alive to harvest its brain.’”

There is no such video. It does not exist. This pesky detail has since touched off a striking series of events.

First, the GOP candidate insisted the day after the debate that she “didn’t misspeak,” adding, “I have seen those images.” Of course, Fiorina couldn’t have seen those images, because there are no such images.

...

Yesterday, Fiorina appeared on “Fox News Sunday,” where host Chris Wallace tried to lead Fiorina to acknowledge reality. From the Nexis transcript:

WALLACE: First of all, do you acknowledge what every fact checker has found, that as horrific as that scene is, it was only described on the video by someone who claimed to have seen it? There is no actual footage of the incident that you just mentioned?

FIORINA: No, I don’t accept that at all. I’ve seen the footage. And I find it amazing, actually, that all these supposed fact-checkers in the mainstream media claim this doesn’t exist. They’re trying to attack the authenticity of the videotape.


...

TPM’s Josh Marshall added the other day, “Fiorina has a habit of simply making things up. In the case of the parts of the Planned Parenthood videos, the way she made it up seems to verge on the pathological. Again she says she saw something in these videos that completely wasn’t there.”

7. yes Fiorina is driven to lie

She is so driven, she wants it so bad she stretches the truth. That's bad if she is a CEO or president but does come in handy if Fiorina starts selling used cars...

12. Every Corporation CEO knows exactly who their customers are and what salesmen cover that district.

She probably signed non-disclosure agreements with her past Corporate employer & could be sued for leaking business, 'secrets'.

Not Presidential material if she could be blackmailed by her past Corporation owners.

13. No one in management?

So HP printers are being sold, by the millions, to Iran during the Iranian embargo, and "no one in management" knew about it?

Gee, just how stupid and out of touch IS corporate management these days?

I smell a big, steaming heap of bullshit.

14. I'm thinking

she may very well wish she never mentioned the SEC.

I googled HP + SEC and look at the 1st hit. Carly was at HP from 1999-2005

http://www.sec.gov/News/PressRelease/Detail/PressRelease/1370541453075

The SEC’s order instituting settled administrative proceedings finds that the Palo Alto, Calif.-based technology company’s subsidiary in Russia paid more than $2 million through agents and various shell companies to a Russian government official to retain a multi-million dollar contract with the federal prosecutor’s office. In Poland, Hewlett-Packard’s subsidiary provided gifts and cash bribes worth more than $600,000 to a Polish government official to obtain contracts with the national police agency. And as part of its bid to win a software sale to Mexico’s state-owned petroleum company, Hewlett-Packard’s subsidiary in Mexico paid more than $1 million in inflated commissions to a consultant with close ties to company officials, and money was funneled to one of those officials.
<snip>
According to the SEC’s order, the scheme involving Hewlett-Packard’s Russian subsidiary occurred from approximately 2000 to 2007. The bribes were paid through agents and consultants in order to win a government contract for computer hardware and software. Employees within the subsidiary and elsewhere raised questions about the significant markup being paid to the agent on the deal and the subcontractors that the agent expected to use. Despite the red flags, the deal went forward without any meaningful due diligence on the agent or the subcontractors.

15. It actually doesn't even matter how much she lies IMO...

The votes she is trying to get couldn't care less about the truth. They just want the world to be the way they view it and want a 'leader' to reassure them that it truly is that way.

16. Hello Folks Brian Here









Folks I know you all know I have been a dirty lying POS of worst possible kind. I have been branded and out casted . I had to live with myself and those lies having been shut out of public life, left alone with the guilt and the humiliation of having been outed.
And I am a better journalist today for it. I'm a changed man today folks and I'm here to tell you I am a truth seeker .
And my mission in life is to search out and expose public figures that are liars wherever they may be.


I am here today to tell you there was not a single truth teller in those debates ,the truth is they are all liars.
Trust me folks, I have changed !

Folks I am sure you all know I have been reassigned to day time programming ,a sign of forgiveness given to me by the network powers that be .
I have presented a proposal to those powers and the idea is a block buster ,a total ratings snatcher. A segment of my program will be titled Brian's Corner . Carly will make a fine outstanding guest of course after she comes into the realization she is living her lies . She hasn't reached bottom yet but I can see she is well on her way down. and when she arrives at rock bottom I will be there . I know what is down there because as you know I have been there !

Brian's corner folks ,coming soon, stay tuned !
