Gov. Christine Gregoire's campaign spokesman resigned this week for changing Wikipedia biography of Georgia's gubernatorial Candidate!

That is how thug-o-crats get elected, they lie, cheat, and steal.

Plain and simple, but they don't have a problem with it as long as it works for them, am I right?


Online postings changed; ex-Gregoire aide resigns

OLYMPIA A political mini-scandal unfolding in Georgia has ties to Washington's raucous 2004 governor's election.

Morton Brilliant, Gov. Christine Gregoire's former campaign spokesman, resigned this week from his latest campaign job amid allegations that he changed an online Wikipedia biography of an opponent in Georgia's gubernatorial race.

An Internet address registered to Brilliant was also used to make changes last year to an online biography of Republican Dino Rossi, Gregoire's opponent in 2004. The address also was used to edit the biography of South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, another Republican Brilliant has campaigned against.

In each case, the alterations added links to newspaper stories that revealed negative or embarrassing information about the politicians.

Wikipedia is a popular online encyclopedia with more than 1 million articles. It is constantly evolving because anyone can go online and edit any item.

Brilliant, who is from South Carolina, had been working for more than a year as the campaign manager for Georgia Secretary of State Cathy Cox, a Democrat who is running for governor.

Early this week, the campaign for Lt. Gov. Mark Taylor, Cox's opponent in the Democratic primary, revealed that a Cox campaign Internet address registered to Brilliant was used last fall to alter the Wikipedia profiles of Brilliant's past and present political foes.

The changes to Taylor's biography added information about his son's drunken-driving arrest. Taylor's son was charged last year after an accident that left his best friend dead.

Brilliant resigned Wednesday after an internal investigation confirmed the Wikipedia postings were made from within the Cox campaign. Cox apologized to Taylor in a written statement.

"From the very day I learned of the Taylor family tragedy, I laid down the law with my staff and supporters: This personal matter would have absolutely no place in my campaign," Cox said.
