Hype over substance
"Jeanne Shaheen was principally involved in a plot with Lois Lerner and President Barack Obama’s political appointee at the IRS to lead a program of harassment against conservative nonprofit groups during the 2012 election"
Opposed law, procedural vote
Says Scott Brown "voted to reward" companies "to ship jobs overseas."
Paved the way for ... not really anything
Says Jeanne Shaheen "voted to pave the way for a new national energy tax."
His partisan-voting score is even higher
Rep. Carol Shea-Porter "votes with Nancy Pelosi’s Democrats 95 percent of the time," but Frank Guinta "will take on both parties" and has "independent New Hampshire values."
Mostly True, again, and again
Says Jeanne Shaheen has "voted with the president 99 percent of the time."
Maybe not "force," but close
"In Massachusetts, Scott Brown pushed for a law to force women considering abortion -- force them -- to look at color photographs of developing fetuses."
An election-year exaggeration
Says Scott Brown co-sponsored legislation to let employers deny women coverage for mammograms.
Amendment he backed was broadly written
Says Scott Brown "co-sponsored legislation to let employers deny women coverage for birth control."
Has NH support, but not from Garcia
"Most people in New Hampshire want to raise the minimum wage. (State Rep. Marilinda) Garcia opposes it."
Close to the mark
Republican House candidate Marilinda Garcia "even opposes closing the loophole that allows dangerous criminals to get a gun without a background check."
Not quite that much, but still a lot
In 2012, "Wall Street" gave Scott Brown "more campaign contributions than any other candidate -- $5.3 million."
By percentage, not raw number
"New Hampshire has lost more jobs to China than any other state."
Not all from Big Oil
"Big Oil gave Scott Brown $454,260."
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.
Typical seasonal rise of 6 percent isn't 'skyrocketing'
When the New Hampshire Legislature raised the gasoline tax, gas prices in the state were "skyrocketing."
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.
