Politicians Barred From Amateur Fibbers' Fest

November 26, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

The annual World Champion Liar contest is soliciting entries from anyone who isn't a politician.

"They are considered professionals," says John Soeth, president of the Burlington (Wis.) Liar's Club, which hosts the event. "The contest is for amateurs only."

No fee is required, but an entrant can submit $1 to become an honorary member. Soeth said he gets letters all the time saying that dollars are enclosed, but they turn out to be lying.
