PolitiFact Florida, a partnership of the St. Petersburg Times and Miami Herald, has been checking the candidates, issues and amendments of the 2010 election for months. We're looking at their campaign TV ads, their attacks on each other, even their Facebook posts. Our most important principle in choosing a fact to check is whether a typical person who heard the statement would wonder, Is that true? In that sense, our role is to satisfy our readers' curiosity. The heart of PolitiFact is the Truth-O-Meter, the device we use to show the relative accuracy of a political statement, from True to False. The most ridiculous falsehoods get our lowest rating, Pants on Fire. Check out our rulings at politifact.com/florida.
