Another day...

In a new radio ad in South Carolina, Mitt Romney repeats a claim about Obama’s appointees to the NLRB...

ROMNEY: “The National Labor Relations Board, now stacked with union stooges selected by the President, says to a free enterprise like Boeing, ‘You can’t build a factory in South Carolina because South Carolina is a Right to Work state.’ That is simply un-American. It is political payback of the worst kind.”

...that PolitiFact already has repeatedly debunked as false:

The NLRB’s complaint started a legal process that could ultimately have resulted in a factory closure, but the NLRB as a whole didn’t tell Boeing anything. What’s more, the legal basis for the action centered on whether Boeing was punishing the union for staging strikes, not that Boeing had opened a factory in a right-to-work state. We rate the statement False.

I know this risks getting boring and predictable, but we really should document them all.
