Arizona Republic finds false Harry Mitchell ad about David Schweikert and foreclosures 100% false

The Republic didn't even find this ad by Harry Mitchell somewhat false - they labeled it 100% false.

Mitchell's press release, "Slumlord Schweikert served eviction notice on a 12-year-old child."

Some excerpts -

What we're looking at
Did Republican David Schweikert serve an eviction notice on a 12-year-old-boy?

The comment
"Slumlord Schweikert served eviction notice on a 12-year-old child."

The forum
Sept. 2 news release from the Mitchell for Congress campaign.

First, David Schweikert himself did not serve an eviction notice.

He owns a company called Sheridan Equities Holdings, which buys and manages foreclosed homes for several investor groups, including a Dallas-based company called Swartz & Brough.

At the time, the home was occupied by a renter, who had an oral lease agreement with the former owner, court records show.

One of the photos taken inside the home, Kruger says, shows Jason Rodriguez holding Kruger's business card in his left hand. The man in the photo appears to be in his late teens or early 20s. It is impossible to tell what he is holding. Kruger also says Jason Rodriguez told him he was married.
