The Congressional Record Is Apparently Written With Invisible Ink

Not long ago Arizona Republican Senator Jon Kyl stood before the Senate and blatantly lied when the Senate was debating cutting funding for Planned Parenthood in this year's budget. Kyl is on video saying that abortions comprised 90% of their services and used that stat to justify his belief that the funding for that organization should be cut.

Of course it didn't take long for Kyl to be called on that outright falsehood, they actually comprise 3% of what PP does, and he initially tried to explain it away by saying that the statement wasn't meant to be factual, more BS. Since that obviously didn't work, he has decided to take a different route.

He just rewrote the Congressional record.
On April 8, Kyl said that, "If you want an abortion you go to Planned Parenthood and that's well over 90 percent of what Planned Parenthood does." Following the change, the Congressional Record now reads, "If you want an abortion you go to Planned Parenthood and that is what Planned Parenthood does."
