Obama transition team: not Spokane’s Lisa Brown, apparently…

David Goldstein's www.horsesass.org blog has an interesting rumor-control item posted.

According to Goldstein, a transition-team list from President-elect Obama includes the name "Lisa Brown."

Could that be Washington's Senate Majority Leader, Spokane's Lisa Brown? She's a liberal Democrat with plenty of political experience -- and was an early endorser of Obama.

No, as it turns out. Goldstein asked, and Brown responded:

I wish it was me, but alas, I haven’t heard from them. The closest I have been to the campaign (besides endorsing early) was meeting the President-elect in Seattle and meeting and introducing Michelle Obama in Spokane.
