Famed pollster swipes at Ossoff for 'making sh*t up'

Political pollster Nate Silver, of the popular site FiveThirtyEight.com, has a message for Democratic CD-6 candidate Jon Ossoff: Stop “making sh*t up.”

It’s in response to a recent political fundraising email that Ossoff’s campaign sent out, claiming that Silver had made a “stunning” announcement about the race to replace Tom Price.

“If Democrats want to take back the House, we MUST win the Georgia Special Election,” the email attributed Silver as saying.

He responded thusly on Twitter:

So far, Ossoff’s campaign has been plagued by falsehoods. While not as consequential as lying about his resume, it’s another reminder of the blatant fabrications that have become common from his candidacy.

The special election is set to take place on April 18.
