David Cicilline (D, RI-01) admits lying about Providence’s fiscal health.

Via Legal Insurrection comes this absolute gem of a confession from former Providence mayor (and current representative for Rhode Island’s First Congressional District) David Cicilline:

Congressman David Cicilline offered a public apology and expressed regret Tuesday for saying during his 2010 campaign that Providence was in “excellent financial condition.”

“I should not have used that word,” Cicilline said in a wide-ranging interview with WPRI 12. “It obviously doesn’t describe the condition the city is in [and] it was never my intention to mislead people intentionally.”
