Esteemed colleague Kevin Diaz has a piece in today’s Strib revealing that someone on Rep. Gil Gutknecht’s staff repeatedly tried to change the wikipedia article on the congressman to delete the fact that when first seeking his seat 12 years ago he had promised to term-limit himself to six terms. (Coincidentally, Gutknecht is now seeking a seventh term.)
Here’s the funniest paragraph.
“A spokesman for Gutknecht did not dispute that his office tried to change his Wikipedia entry. But he called into question the reliability of the service, which was created in 2001 and claims to be the largest reference website on the Internet.”
Translation: I don’t deny that you found me with my hand in your safe, but I really think you should have a better lock on that thing.
