The first Republican candidate who announced for governor in 1986 was the former house minority leader. Royal Switzler, a glib and affable character was a constant gadfly always in the face of the house speaker.
Switzler had a small problem. He was a liar. And he got caught in a whopper.
The state representative from Wellesley was an army sergeant who served in Korea. However, he said he was a Green Beret Captain who served in combat Vietnam. Not good. The papers and talk shows croaked him and he withdrew his candidacy.
