Recent stories featuring Brian Kemp

Good week for truthiness at PolitiFact Georgia:

Politicians kept the truth close at hand at PolitiFact Georgia last week.

Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp earned a True on a claim about election law violations. So did Johns Creek Mayor Mike Bodker, who talked about the region’s transportation needs. A criminal justice expert earned a Mostly True when he questioned the effectiveness of Atlanta’s curfew law.

State Sen. Jack Murphy strayed the furthest from the truth with a statement on immigration. Half True, we ruled.

All in all, not a bad week for Truthiness.
