PolitiFact Georgia sees things mostly PolitiFact Ohio's way. It's "Mostly False" that Jack Kingston (R-Ga.) raised his own pay. Hey! A Republican got the benefit of the doubt this time! But it's not that simple. Blame for the "Mostly False" claim goes to Kingston's Republican primary challenger, David Perdue.
So, on essentially the same claim, PolitiFact has put a "False" and a "Mostly False" on Republican report cards, and a "True" on the report card for the Florida Democratic Party (the latter claim was a compound claim where both halves were found true).
If Kingston wins the primary, it will be interesting to see if any Democrats pick up this line of attack. First, will PolitiFact Georgia notice? Second, what rating will result?
