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."
