Another Misleading Wulsin Endorsement (or, Schmidt Part Deux)
On day five of the Wulsin Retraction Watch, ANOTHER endorsement listed on the WWWWWW has now been revealed to be, ahem, incorrect.
Today, the Thor Jacobs campaign issued the following endorsement from Cincinnati City Councilwoman Laketa Cole who has been claimed as an endorser by the Wulsin campaign:
Cincinnati Councilwoman Laketa Cole Joins Council colleagues in endorsing Jacobs
For Immediate ReleaseApril 24, 2006 Cincinnati, Ohio
The President Pro Tem of the Cincinnati City Council, Laketa Cole, has recently endorsed Thor Jacobs in the Ohio 2nd District Democratic Congressional primary.
Saying “it is with great pleasure that I endorse Thor Jacobs for Congress” Cole added that she “believes he is more than capable and qualified for this office.”
Councilmember Cole joins her council colleagues John Cranley and Cecil Thomas as selecting Jacobs as the Democrat with the strongest connections to the City of Cincinnati and the strongest opportunity to vigorously compete and win in the 2nd district.

Unlike other campaigns the Jacobs campaign has not been repeatedly forced to remove bogus endorsements from our communications.
So, that makes DfC, HCDP Nominating Committee, and Laketa Cole. How many more "endorsements" will the Wulsin campaign have to (silently) retract?
