As Twitchy reported, Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa stirred up a small-scale controversy Thursday when he tweeted that he’d hit a deer with his car. Grassley said he assumed the deer was killed, but a concerned few wanted to know for sure. We’ll give Grassley credit for addressing his constituents, but it seems the senator has changed his story.

Two days after the incident, Grassley is claiming that his Prius was “attacked” by a “dear.” These details just don’t add up. Are we getting into Kennedy territory here?

The dead deer is contesting the newest accusation.
