I wonder if they'll actually publish anything about it or just give it the cursory acknowledgement on their website.
Apparently Mary Biskup's credit card was charged $175,000
from the Obama campaign. She said she never donated anything. (And yes, she must have awfully good credit.)
The campaign caught the error and refunded the money. Mosk published a quote from an Obama spokesman commending themselves for doing so and making sure everyone knows "no organization is protected credit card fraud."
This seems to me like a heck of a story. $175,000 is nothing to joke about. It's not like this woman lost a dollar in a pop machine.
There's no doubt this story should be on A1 tomorrow.
Something tells me the Washington Post isn't going to move this story off their blog page though. I really hope I'm proven wrong. I'll update then.UPDATE 10/23:
Well, I wasn't proven wrong.
The Washington Post makes NO MENTION of the $175,000 erroneously charged to a woman's credit card by the Obama campaign in their print edition today.
There is, however, an A1 feature on John McCain that opens with tales about Keating Five, a news story titled "McCain Tries to Push Past Palin Backlash," a news story about why "Democrats Have Reason to Celebrate." In the Style section there is a lengthy piece critical of Sarah Palin's wardrobe budget and an uber flatting feature on Joe Biden's wife.
Washington Post reporter Matthew Mosk, who I've criticized several times before on this blog, has found a doozy of a story about the Obama campaign.
