Who knew? A round up of fact-checks that proved true

PolitiFact attempts to parse political truth from political fiction. We find plenty of fiction. But it’s important to remember that PolitiFact Georgia also discovers that politicians and power brokers sometimes hit the nail squarely on the head. PolitiFact Georgia published more than 240 fact checks in 2013,and 37 of those rated True on the AJC Truth-O-Meter. That compared with 26 that were rated False and 17 that earned our lowest designation, Pants On Fire. The remainder fell in the Mostly True, Half True and Mostly False categories. Today we look at our favorite fact checks of 2013 where the politicians got it right.
