Revenue Department Apologizes to Browne, Pinsley

State Senator Pat Browne is seeking re-election. Last week, he sent a flyer accusing his opponent, Mark Pinsley, of having a state tax lien. We all know now this was untrue. The state Department of Revenue has apologized to both candidates.

C. Daniel Hansell, the Secretary of Revenue, sent them both a letter yesterday:

"I am aware that this issue has now become a matter of public controversy. I deeply regret the inaccurate information provided by my Department with regard to this matter, and apologize to you both for the confusion it has caused."

This should have been the headline of the Morning Call. They did a poor job setting the record straight in such a high profile blunder.

It's also not true, the investigation is not closed. It is now clear that Browne's campaign altered the document that they put into the mailer. It's also not clear how the false document was generated in the first place. Was it a database error or was 'manually generated' by a corrupt department employee.

Fine, then let's meet in the middle and agree that they're just a rotten rag.

The Morning Call is Fake News at its finest ... and the whole world, including Bill White, knows it, too.
