New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker (D.) described himself in a Friday interview at South By Southwest as a “determined purveyor of the truth,” but a Washington Free Beacon analysis finds that Booker has a long history of getting caught straying from reality.

Booker, who was introduced by his interviewer as “the incredible Cory Booker,” gave a speech to the crowd at the annual Austin tech conference, which will also hear from former Vice President Joe Biden over the weekend. His comment about being a “truth-teller,” however, came during an interview for Facebook Live, which can be viewed below.
