AP FACT CHECK: Perdue Claim About Ossoff “Flatly False”

Associated Press: Perdue’s campaign “insistent on misinterpreting” the facts

ATLANTA — The Associated Press is joining the chorus of independent fact checkers calling out Senator David Perdue’s “flatly false” lies. In the AP’s rebuke of Perdue’s false claim that Ossoff is “endorsed by the Communist Party,” they point out that he is “insistent on misinterpreting” the facts.

The Associated Press fact check comes just a day after the Washington Post gave Senator David Perdue four Pinocchios on the same “outrageously false” claim, noting Perdue’s lie is so false, it’s “almost worthy of parody,” and said Senator Perdue “should be ashamed of himself” and “apologize.”

Senator Perdue has a long history of lying about both Jon Ossoff and his own record of failing Georgians. One of Perdue’s latest deceitful efforts to “obscure [his] position on pre-existing conditions” and run away from his disastrous record was also recently exposed as “False” by PolitiFact, noting that Perdue’s “record on preexisting conditions doesn’t match his promises.”

“At least three independent fact checkers have now called out Senator Perdue’s pattern of outrageous falsehoods in desperation to win this campaign.” said Braxton Brewington, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “Georgians cannot trust a single thing he says.”
