Some experimentation in the Python interpreter will help you.
>>> s = 'Sam'
>>> f = 'Frank'
>>> s == f # false
>>> s == s # true
>>> sam = 'Sam'
>>> s == sam # true
as you can see, string == string works. Most likely your data is either not a
proper string OR they are not perfect matches. A space, newline, anything
like that would change the answer.
Try running the pieces of your script in the interpreter by hand, should point
out the error rather quickly.
