PolitiFact meters heading into the red as election day nears



PolitiFact Florida has rated a couple of claims in the past day or so that suggest Florida's politicians are losing their grasp of the facts as the primary nears.

Kendrick Meek claimed that "There’s a mosque inside of the Pentagon." Nope.

Bill McCollum's group the Florida First Initiative overstepped in a new ad about Rick Scott and the company he co-founded, Solantic.

Rick Scott, meanwhile, went too far in trying to link McCollum to former RPOF Chairman Jim Greer.

And Jeff Greene committed a Full-Flop on lifting the U.S. Cuban embargo and allowing travel to Cuba.
