Recent stories featuring Jack Murphy

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.
