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.
