PHOENIX - Gov. Jan Brewer rose to national fame defending the state's immigration law and warning of rising violence along the U.S.-Mexico border, including a claim that headless bodies were turning up in the Arizona desert.
But the claim has come back to haunt her after her stammering debate performance in which she failed to back it up and ignored repeated questions on the issue from a scrum of reporters.
Brewer has spent the time since backtracking and trying to repair the damage done from her cringe-worthy debate against underdog challenger Terry Goddard.
"That was an error, if I said that," the Republican told The Associated Press on Friday. "I misspoke, but you know, let me be clear, I am concerned about the border region because it continues to be reported in Mexico that there's a lot of violence going on and we don't want that going into Arizona."
Of course she lied, she did not misspeak. Don't you realize their is another motive besides just politics. Her and her group have a vested interest in locking up illegals. It's all about the money. That's why she would lie about be headings. The more illegals they get in prison. The more money they will make. Illegal crimes have been down in Arizona.

Oh please. So according to you she "lied." I think we've already established that she's a politician and ALL politicians "embellish" from time to time. It's only because she's Republican and *gasp* is forcing the Federal Government to uphold written LAWS on immigration, that she has your panties in wad!! LOL If she were a Democrat and caught lying, you'd defend her by saying "she was tired, she's trying really hard, or she's cleaning up someone else's mess!" Just more double standards by liberals!! LOL!!! :oP
