Congress caught making false entries in Wikipedia

We already know, of course, that politicians live primarily for
re-election and typically view the truth as an impediment to the higher
purpose of unfettered self-aggrandizement.
Still, we can be excused for feeling mildly nauseated when fresh
confirmation of this distasteful aspect of modern politicking surfaces.
The latest episode appeared last week in the form of a report that aides
to Rep. Marty Meehan, a Massachusetts Democrat, deleted references to
his broken term-limits pledge and massive campaign war chest on Wikipedia.
