Rep. Stefani Carter (Sorta) Answers Questions About Her ‘Terrible Accident’

A week ago, we raised some questions about remarks that Rep. Stefani Carter made at a District 102 candidates’ forum. She said she was seeking reelection, in part, because she “could have died” in a “terrible” car crash, and that caused her to examine what was important in life. The Morning News’ editorial board asked her for some details about the crash and brings us these answers from Carter. The answers are worse than terrible. I was careful in that post last week not to call her a liar. But it is clear now that she is lying — or at least exaggerating so much that we’d all agree her tale is the decimal approximation of a lie. (PS: Thanks to the News for the hat tip in the article to D Magazine for bringing this to light.)
