Reality Check from the AJC:
While Cox says she has always supported the HOPE scholarship, she doesn’t say in this ad that she backed the lottery. Taylor has accused her of voting against it as a private citizen, citing a newspaper article about a speech she made in 1993.
Cox said last week that she did vote for the lottery and the author of the article Taylor used for the attack ad on the lottery said this week that his quotes were taken out of context.
However, the Taylor campaign produced a letter from former Blakely City Councilman Benjamin Cawthon, a member of the audience at the Cox speech in 1993, who said Cox did, in fact, indicate that she voted against the lottery.
