    They did make clear that the QCEW data is regarded as the most accurate (and that is produced with the BLS), although they have the drawback of there being typically a 6-9 month lag in producing them.

    QCEW data itself isn't phony; what Walker lied about was:

     1. BLS had verified the preliminary QCEW data he produced in May 2012.
     2. It showed that his economic leadership was great (now that we have all states' data in, turns out the figures he was touting showed that we were in 38th place in 2011, down from 11th in 2010).

    Fake candidates nominated by the GOP for the recalls: 6 out of 7. Fake signatures on the recall petitions: 4 out of 1,860,283.
