A roundup of false comments that still burn

There’s not much worse  for the political class than a trip to the fiery regions courtesy of PolitiFact Georgia and the AJC Truth-O-Meter.

This year PolitiFact Georgia published more than 240 fact checks. Of those, 17 had the distinction of being awarded a Pants On Fire rating. Not only were these statements judged to be untrue, but they were found to be ridiculously so.

Here are summaries of a few of our favorite incendiary ratings of the year.

Today’s roundup kicks off a weeklong review of some of the best of PolitiFact Georgia from 2013.
