McCain's falsehood about founder of eBay

From Satyam Khanna at Think Progress.

We have all heard McCain brag about one of his "economic" advisers, eBay CEO Meg Whitman. McCain has even suggested that he might chose her to be Secretary of the Treasury.

We have all heard McCain speak of Ms. Whitman as the "founder" of eBay.

We have come to realize that much of the time, McCain doesn't know what the hell he's talking about.

In fact, as reported by the Huffington Post: "Whitman joined eBay as CEO in 1998, three years after it was founded by Pierre Omidyar, a Barack Obama supporter."
