We ruled Caprio's claim Half True. Chafee said changing Rhode Island's official name would require amending the U.S. Constitution. We couldn't rule definitively on that, but decided to share our research anyway.Gemma says he's more 'linked' than Obama

One of Gemma's claims in particular, about topping President Obama on LinkedIn, a networking site, caught our attention. So we took a closer look.
