Actually, the yolks on Rick Scott



See this ad from Rick Scott claiming that Bill McCollum voted 42 times to raise taxes and fees while in Congress. Well PolitiFact Florida decided to examine the claim.

Their findings: Well, Scott is double, triple and quadruple counting some votes, calling the extension of a tax a tax increase, and neglects massive tax cuts McCollum supported (sometimes by the very same vote that Scott says McCollum raised taxes with).
