Astute readers of The Seattle Times news pages know they can count on our “Truth Needle” feature to fact-check some of the more off-base claims in this political season’s slew of TV, print and other ads by politicians and issue campaigns.

Well, today is Halloween, and some of our high-level producers, Lauren Rabaino, Katrina Barlow and Matt Ironside, (in that order) couldn’t resist. They came to work dressed for some truth needling — true, half-true and just plain false. Sound familiar?

If you see any of these three out and about this evening, please smile at them and give them prodigious amounts of candy.
