Associated Press Parade of Stupidity, Chapter 7,410

The AP's Woody Baird provides an in-depth look into the corruption case rocking the state of Tennessee. John Ford, a member of the politically powerful Ford family, was caught on video tape in a compromising position. After reviewing a bill that would benefit a company he thought was real, he accepted cash payments that eventually reached $55,000.

In the 14-paragraph version of the story (the most common one, it would appear), Baird omits one teensy little detail: which political party Ford and his family represent.

That would be the Democratic Party, of course. I'm sure Baird just forgot to mention it.
