Idaho CD2: PolitiFact gives anti-Simpson ad 'Pants on Fire' rating

The Tampa Bay Times' PolitiFact.com blog has given an ad attacking Idaho 2d congressional district incumbent Congressman Mike Simpson its worst rating on the "Truth-O-Meter" scale.

The ad, presented by the PAC for conservative group Madison Project, highlights several votes that Simpson has made in his career that coincided with votes cast by California Democrat Nancy Pelosi. The Madison Project is supporting Bryan Smith, an Idaho Falls attorney who's challenging Simpson in this year's Republican primary.

PolitiFact took issue with most of the Madison Project ad's claims.
