Vide-O-Fact: Watch and decide if Mike Haridopolos lied about Jim Greer contract



In February, we asked Senate President designate Mike Haridopolos a straightforward question: Do you know anything about any sort of settlement agreement that had been signed with Jim Greer?

Haridopolos first tried to duck it by casting doubt on the source of the information, fundraiser Al Hoffman. Then, Haridopolos went on to call the contract a "rumor" and soon said "I've not seen any agreements." Later, he said he didn't "sign" an agreement.

When we caught up with Haridopolos last week, he said he was answering a technical question about the binding nature of the contract he signed: "That's exactly the question you asked me."

False. Watch and listen.
