Fact Check: The Sit-Ups Governor?

by Categorized: Gov. Dannel Malloy Date:

While tuning in to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy on MSNBC\’s Morning Joe today, I heard them talking about the governor\’s ability to do 1,000 sit-ups.

Is there another politician who does this many situps anywhere in Connecticut? Does he do this every day? How about starting off every debate next year with 100 sit-ups?

Malloy spokesman Andrew Doba said there\’s no reason to doubt the story, although he said he has never been there when the governor is working out.

There\’s apparently some debate about whether 1,000 daily sit-ups will get you that six-pack.
