From Commie claim to Hooters: the year in PolitiFact Florida

With 2012 coming to a close, PolitiFact Florida editors decided to look back at your favorite fact-checks of a busy political year. We fact-checked an ad by Democrat U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson who said of his Republican opponent U.S. Rep. Connie Mack IV : "A promoter for Hooters with a history of bar room brawling, altercations and road rage." And we dove into Republican U.S. Rep. Allen West's claim that "I believe there's about 78 to 81 members of the Democrat Party who are members of the Communist Party"

In no particular order, here are a selection of the most read PolitiFact Florida fact-checks of 2012.
