Tell a lie often enough, it becomes the truth… that’s the strategy in the playbook of the ConCon proponents selling legislators and voters the idea that the U.S. constitution is broken, and amending it will fix the federal body.
One such group – State Legislators Article V Caucus – speaks for a handful of pro-ConCon political action groups, including Convention of States (COS), and Balanced Budget Amendment Task Force (BBATF). Attempting to snag any low hanging fruit, they emailed a November newsletter to all state legislators claiming support from one particular person of influence. Per their newsletter, they claim he has now joined forces with the BBATF to “shepherd the BBA effort to completion”. This is an outright lie.
