WASHINGTON (AP) — In several stories published Sept. 30 and Oct. 1, The Associated Press, quoting The Washington Post, reported that during President Obama's visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, an armed security guard who accompanied him in an elevator had three criminal convictions. The guard, Kenneth Tate, has since identified himself publicly and said he was never convicted of a crime. The Post has corrected its story, saying sources have since told the newspaper that Tate had no felony record. The Associated Press has been unable to find any records of a criminal conviction against Tate.
