Better late than never: Politifact says Rafael Cruz not man in photo with Lee Harvey Oswald
On Tuesday morning, Donald Trump angered many when he repeated the National Enquirer’s claim that a photo places Ted Cruz’s father with Lee Harvey Oswald just before the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy.
Fox News’ Sean Hannity also let Trump repeat the claim as though it were true.
Politifact, however, said it ran a facial recognition scan on the grainy black-and-white photo in question, and the man next to Oswald is not Cruz.

As long as we’re taking conspiracy theories seriously, check out the timestamp on PolitiFact’s tweet, showing that it was posted after the first polls had closed in Indiana. Who knows how many votes could have been salvaged if this important information had been brought to light even a few hours earlier.
