Snopes Is Our Friend

When I first came across the article about the Secret Service running out of money the little man in the back of my brain threw up a red flag. So, because I trust them, I went to Snopes, where I found no article or story investigating the claim. Next I sent a message asking them to look into it. I received the usual form email thanking me for the submission. And I hadn’t heard anything since.

Well, today I decided to follow up and check out their site. Low and behold: the story about the Secret Service running out of money is “Mostly False.” There is a salary cap that is causing some issues, but it can be rectified by the House of Representatives if they so choose to lift the cap. Anyway, just a reminder that most claims on the internet are false, though with a grain of truth.
