Statements from the Wisconsin: 2010 Governor's race

Mostly False

There may have been means and even motive, but party’s claim lacks key element: Evidence

True

Jobs may be down overall, but things are looking up in the oft-overlooked valley

Half Flip

Walker hasn't changed lanes entirely, but latest statement is a shift

Scott Walker
Scott Walker

On toll roads.

Half-True

Pro-Life Wisconsin's survey included 'personhood' question, through which it -- like some other groups -- defines the pill as abortion

Pants on Fire!

With group's upside down math, giving back less means getting paid more

Mostly False

Partial birth ban applied to a specific procedure. It's the Supreme Court, not Congress, that voted to allow late-term abortions

Half-True

The mud gets muddled due to Walker's change in position

Mostly False

There may be fewer deer in the woods, but it's by design (there are fewer to crash into your car, too)

False

While there is a political and moral dispute on the issue, scientists argue research on both types should continue

Mostly False

In labeling Walker extreme, the group goes a bit beyond the facts

Pants on Fire!

Saying it often -- and loudly -- does not make it more true

Mostly True

It hasn't historically been the county's role, but the office did disappear for a year

False

The adult-embryonic distinction is important in science -- and politics

False

Excuse us, Mr. Secretary, but won't the voters have a say in this Nov. 2?

True

That's a lot of change ... and it's in the county coffers, not Walker's wallet

Pants on Fire!

If this were the art world instead of politics, it would be considered forgery

Mostly False

It did disappear within weeks of Walker taking office ... but due to things already in place

Half-True

Passenger traffic is soaring, but not all the jobs have landed yet
