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.
