While fumbling for an answer on why the White House continues to use misleading statistics on the gender wage gap, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney falsely claimed Republicans fought civil rights legislation.

Of course, Carney got it backwards.
It wasn’t Republicans who fought civil rights legislation — it was Democrats.
But being a good liberal, Carney refuses to let the truth get in the way.
