(Newser) – Glenn Beck picked the wrong congressperson's spouse to pick on. The Fox host went after Illinois Rep. Jan Schakowsky’s husband, Robert Creamer, who has done time for bank fraud, claiming he wrote a “prison manifesto” the Obama administration is following for health care reform. "This is a man who lies about everything," Creamer shot back. Yes, he wrote part of a book on progressive politics while behind bars, he tells the Chicago Tribune, but the idea that the administration pays him any mind is "laughable.”
