The arm of the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania called the Idaho Democrat’s new TV ad “pretty cheeky,” but swiftly issued a correction Wednesday. FactCheck.org posted a story Wednesday saying Minnick was among nine Democrats falsely claiming to have voted against the Wall Street bailout. But after speaking with Minnick’s campaign, a correction was issued: “We originally reported that Minnick’s ad said he ‘voted’ against the
bailout. His campaign manager John Foster objected, pointing out that
what Minnick says in the ad is: ‘I’ve said no’ to Wall Street bailouts. “It’s true that, as a candidate in 2008, he did denounce passage of
the bill. He would have been more accurate to say in his ad that he
‘spoke out against’ the bailouts”/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman. More here.
