State Rep. Joe Carr has done it again. Caught doing something really stupid, he's claimed he didn't know he was doing it when he did it, thereby proving himself to be even dumber than we thought. We love this guy. He's hilarious. On his website, he claimed an endorsement from Knoxville News Sentinel reporter Tom Humphrey. When he was called out for this blatant lie, he said he didn't understand that, when he put Humphrey's name down under "Endorsements" on the web page, it meant Humphrey had endorsed him.
“That’s not at all an endorsement,” said Carr when contacted. “I understand that and it’s my fault. I didn’t even think about that when we put it under endorsements. I apologize.”
This recalls what Carr said when he was caught racking up exorbitant legislative per diem:
"I didn't realize that every time I came to the legislature, they did a per diem."
Hahahahaha! So when Carr filled out forms asking for the per diem, signed for the checks and cashed them, he didn't know what he was doing? Maybe he was knocked on the head on his way to the bank and suffers from temporary amnesia.
