Rep. Marty Meehan Spins His Wikipedia Listing Monday, January 30, 2006

I'm a loyal Democrat, liberal, progessive etc. But when the Dems screw up, I've got to call them out. Check out this story about U.S. RepresentativeMarty Meehan (D-MA).

When he first won the race, he won on a promise to only be there for four terms. He's running for his 8th term. He's also got $4.8 million in the bank and ready to fight. That's the largest warchest of any House member. Yep... he's bucking the status quo alright.
The interesting part of this is the Wikipedia thing. Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia with tons of topics. Meehan had one of his staffers rewrite the info on the entry for him, eliminating things like "he promised term limits" and how big his warchest is.

Meehan needs to be called out. He made a simple promise he could keep. There was no "tough choice" on it. He's just another player in the game now. Liberal or not, he should've quite when his 4 terms was up.
