PolitiFact Georgia at 5 shares some favorite claims

PolitiFact Georgia continues celebrating its fifth anniversary today by showcasing some head-turning claims we’ve fact-checked over the years from politicians, newsmakers and social media. Some of the hard-to-believe claims proved to be true, and those easy to accept were sometimes shown to be rather outlandish. But all of them provided interesting fodder for our fact-checkers. Summaries of a few of our favorites are below. To comment on our rulings or suggest one of your own, go to our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/politifact.georgia).
