Rep. Jim Jordan

Fact Check

Article shared by U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan fact-checked for relying on data that is flawed: An article from The Spectator US shared by Ohio congressman Jim Jordan, which cites a nine-point list of election peculiarities, was fact-checked by Facebook fact-checker Lead Stories. "The list relies on falsehoods and unproven theories," asserted Lead Stories' fact-check. "Chief among them are claims that swing states stopped counting ballots on election night, that record numbers of dead people voted and that low absentee ballot rejection rates suggest something nefarious is afoot. None is true, election officials say." Facebook's policy notes that the platform automatically ensures that fewer people see posts flagged by its conglomerate of fact-checkers.
