[Coming Soon] =What is the “Kleinfeld Score”?= The Kleinfeld Score is a numerical score that measures a political figure’s honesty. You calculate it by dividing a political speaker's number of '''truthful''' Wikiproved claims and statements (i.e., claims and statements found not to be <span style="color:red">false</span>, <span style="color:green">misleading</span>, <span style="color:purple">BS</span>, or <u>inconsistent</u>) by his or her '''total''' number of Wikiproved claims and statements. The result indicates the percentage of time that the political figure speaks honestly. For example, if a politician gives a speech containing 10 specific factual claims, 4 of which turn out to be untrue, that speech gets a 6/10. If the politician later gives a speech with 2 out of 12 untruths, that speech gets a 10/12. That politician's Kleinfeld Score is the sum of all his or her statements that have been Wikiproved: 16/22 or 73%. The Kleinfeld Score is named for Wikiprove’s founder and director, Joshua Kleinfeld, an assistant professor of law at Northwestern University: http://www.law.northwestern.edu/faculty/profiles/Joshua%20SethKleinfeld.
