    He told the truth so far as I can tell. It is more likely that you are lying than that Corker did.

    Right, because Corker would never do that

    Re: Tennessee Volkswagen plant votes against union in UAW defeat

    George F. Will: Breaking the grip of the unions - The Washington Post

    VW received $577 million in tax breaks and other incentives to locate in Chattanooga, so Tennessee officials surely were entitled to speak about how unionization might harm the investment already made and might diminish the likelihood of additional help. Nowadays, however, liberalism responds to its unpersuasiveness by trying to get government to silence (as with the Internal Revenue Service) or punish (it is the National Labor Relations Board’s turn) speech by liberalism’s critics. So, the UAW may ask the NLRB to overturn the vote because of unfair labor practices, which supposedly amount to the fact that the UAW was not the only speaker during the debate before the vote. Anti-UAW billboards noted Detroit’s current prostration, and Sen. Bob Corker called the UAW “a Detroit-based organization.” Its headquarters, Solidarity House, is in Detroit.

    I don't know about never, but there's no evidence he lied in this matter.

    Oh, but bummer he did lie when he said, I’ve had conversations today and based on those am assured that should the workers vote against the UAW, Volkswagen will announce in the coming weeks that it will manufacture its new mid-size SUV here in Chattanooga,” said Corker in a statement Wednesday evening."

    There is zero evidence that was not true.

    This has to do with the company and employees not Corker.

    It's relevant to the OP. You're the only one obsessed with Corker.
