On Sunday, Trip Gabriel at the New York Times had the thankless task of concocting a report which would somehow make Ohio Democrats feel positive about winning at least one statewide office in November instead of getting skunked, which appears pretty likely at this point.
That's because the campaign of the Dems' gubernatorial candidate, affectionately known as the Wreck That Is Edward FitzGerald, has imploded over the fact that FitzGerald, a former FBI agent, somehow managed to drive without a valid permanent license for ten years. In the course of carrying out her mission — one she should have chosen not to accept — Gabriel made three errors. Two of them involve failing to check out two not-credible claims by Democrats. A third involves a basic fact about Ohio's electoral offices. Two of the three really require Times corrections. We'll see if they are forthcoming.
