As a public service we are asking our OffTheBus readers to send along the sleazy and dirty political material they're receiving this election season. We at OffTheBus are not promoting or endorsing any of this material. But it exists, and we think you have a right to see what others are seeing. You can use the comment section below to fact-check this piece and others. Below is a list of organizations and websites that debunk material like this.
Return to our Sleazeshow: Politics and Dirty Tricks 2008 and see more of what's being passed around.
There are a number of websites dedicated to determining if what politicians, candidates and others say is true or not. If you hear shady information and want to check out if it's true, try searching one of these sites: the Annenberg Political Fact Check, a project of the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania; the Washington Post's The Fact Checker; PolitiFact From St. Petersburg Times and Congressional Quarterly; and Snopes.com investigates urban legends. Factcheck.barackobama.com is the Obama campaign's official website devoted to debunking malicious rumors about the Senator. JohnMcCain.com lists McCain's official positions.
