Its funny how sometimes the “truth” is something that just sort of pops up. And when facts become uncomfortable, they become a little window on the truth.

In California's epic struggle to pull salmon from the edge of extinction, nothing is more important than shinning light on absurdities presented as facts. So once again, that light is aimed at the Westlands Water District.

Westlands lust for a peripheral canal drove them to raise $50-million in tax-free bonds. For security, they pledged water that is actually owned by the public.

Then, they promised in writing that they would sell the water to California cities and towns to repay the loan.

Westlands seems to think it's OK to sidestep the truth, even when asked in a Senate hearing. Watch this video and see for yourself.
