PolitiFact Florida Checks Out Grayson's Follow-Up to "Taliban Dan" Ad
Rep. Alan Grayson, a Florida Democrat, turned heads -- and inspired some outrage -- with a Sept. 25, 2010, ad labeling his Republican challenger, former state House Speaker Daniel Webster, "Taliban Dan" due to his longstanding connection to a conservative Christian group.
Now, the ad is history. (Literally: It has apparently been taken down from YouTube.) But on Wednesday, the Grayson campaign released a new ad, called "Dan Webster: The Facts.”
PolitiFact Florida checked two of the facts in the new ad.
