Right there on the application
Says Keene, N.H., requested a "military-grade armored personnel truck," citing their annual Pumpkin Festival as "a possible target" for terrorists.
Far fetched and misleading
Says Marilinda Garcia supports "$150 billion in new taxes."
By letter of law, no
Says U.S. Rep. Ann McLane Kuster used $293,000 of taxpayer money to send campaign mail.
Number is accurate, sample is small
Says Scott Brown voted with President Barack Obama 70 percent of the time in 2011.
'Simple fact,' not factual
Says Jeanne Shaheen "voted for a measure that would have amounted to a new national energy tax."
Neither number is accurate
Says when armed civilians stop mass shootings with guns, an average of 2.5 people die; otherwise, an average of 18 people die.
Stats are pretty close
"Shaheen votes with Obama 99 percent of the time."
Not most, but close
"I was the most bipartisan senator in the United States Senate."
Stayed silent during important vote
On delaying a health care mandate on business.
Charge lacks full context
Says that as a U.S. senator, Scott Brown "delivered for Wall Street, saving big banks $19 billion in taxes."
