After Spinning That It Was "Not Intended to be a Factual Statement," Jon Kyl "Revises" His Remarks About Planned Parenthood

 TPM notes that " Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ) has amended the congressional record to qualify his recent remark about Planned Parenthood that lead to the mother of all spin from his flack: 'His remark was not intended to be a factual statement.'"

On April 8, Kyl said that, "If you want an abortion you go to Planned Parenthood and that's well over 90 percent of what Planned Parenthood does." Following the change, the Congressional Record now reads, "If you want an abortion you go to Planned Parenthood and that is what Planned Parenthood does."
