Allen Boyd Congress Alexander_graham_bell

U.S. Rep. Allen Boyd has been a politician for so long, when he first got elected lots of folks didn't have phone service.

The line might sound like a joke -- ok, a bad joke -- but it's actually part of a new TV ad the Florida Democrat is airing on his campaign website.

We decided to analyze the connection between Boyd and Alexander Graham Bell (the bearded guy) over at PolitiFact Florida.
