PolitiFact: Connie Mack ad re: Bill Nelson voting to see how monkeys on cocaine react is “Mostly False”
PolitiFact says Connie Mack’s ad criticizing Bill Nelson for voting to see how monkeys on cocaine react is “Mostly False”:
“Mack’s claim is pretty bananas. Yes, Nelson was among senators to approve the stimulus package, which directed large sums of money to scientific research. But Nelson didn’t pick out the monkey project. A federal agency did. Even a critic who calls the project wasteful says you can’t blame Nelson.
We rate the statement Mostly False.”
