Kevin: Mea Culpa From Election Season

Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Tom Sullivan is taking heat for withholding information about his business tax troubles, from his party's leadership, and from Idaho voters. But Sullivan did discuss some of his tax problems in a May 7 Statesman editorial board interview (here's a link to the audio; Sullivan discusses his tax troubles about three-fourths of the way in). We should have followed up during the interview, and we should have incorporated the information into our May 18 endorsement in the Democratic primary. We often take elected officials to task for failing to exercise due diligence. In this case, that criticism applies to us/Kevin Richert, Idaho Statesman. More here.

Question: What do you think re: Kevin Richert admitted a mistake?
