PolitiFact Texas

In case you missed it, PolitiFact.com has opened a Texas branch. PoliticFact Texas is dedicated to fact-checking the claims of various Texas politicians and parties. PolitiFact.com checks out the claims of these people and gives them a rating on a their “Truth-O-Meter” scale  that rangers from “True” to “Pants on Fire.”

Pants on FireMy favorite category is Pants on Fire and Texas’ politicians have already made a good effort at filling up that category. However, you can also look for the cases where politicians got it right.

These kind of “truth watch” sites are playing a constructive role in politics. They can be a little finicky at times. However, they give Texans a place to go and check out what they’re hearing from candidates.
