In the Colorado Senate race, U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner said that Sen. Mark Udall  "passed Obamacare with his vote." This ignores the other 59 senators who also voted to end debate — and the exact same thing could be said about them. We say: Mostly False.

Based on official information from the U.S. Census, as of July 2013, New York was in third place in population with about 100,000 more residents than Florida. Demographers have predicted that Florida will soon overtake New York and it’s possible that it has already happened, but demographers said we won’t know for certain until the census releases updated information later this year. We rate politicians’ claims based on information available at the time, so at this point we can’t declare for certain that Florida has inched ahead of New York. We rate this claim Mostly False.

Don't have to wait for sinkholes. The bath salt zombies will eat each other's faces and even things out again.

The Senate Majority PAC claimed Rep. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., worked for insurance companies. We found that he didn't in a direct or even indirect capacity. False. #ARsen

Democrats, if you can't tell the truth despite the right wing's lies, then you've sacrificed your own souls in this fight.

+Barack Obama said more than 3 million young adults ages 19 to 25 gained insurance from the Affordable Care Act's 2010 mandate that they could stay on their families' plans. There are a lot of ways to crunch the numbers on signups, so we rate him Half True.

Readers have been asking us to check a chain email that sees something vaguely nefarious in five aircraft carriers docked together in Norfolk, Va., We checked the claims and found significant holes.

We check a chain email that says Michelle Obama waved "red communist flags" on her trip to China. Actually, she was just waving banners used in a folk-dancing exhibition. Pants on Fire!

Sad commentary that the Republicans don't know how to tell the truth about anything

In his op-ed, Charles Koch wrote that "EPA officials have commended us for our ‘commitment to a cleaner environment’ and called us ‘a model for other companies.’ " Actually, the EPA was focusing on very limited aspects of Koch Industries and not the company as a whole. Further, Koch Industries has a history with the EPA that was completely glossed over, and it includes multiple violations of rules. The statement contains an element of truth but ignores critical facts that would give a different impression. We rate it Mostly False.
