I'm going to address this new ruling about the death penalty for pedophiles in another post, but Yahoo News, the AFP and Fanny Carrier need to issue a correction and an apology to Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-RI) immediately. They linked his bio and voting record to a man who has the same name---and is sentenced to death for rape of a minor.

The only man among more than 3,300 prisoners on death row who stands to lose his life under the new law is 42-year-old Patrick Kennedy (news, bio, voting record), who was sentenced to death in Louisiana in 2003 for raping his companion's eight-year-old daughter.

C&L's own Mark Groubert saw this last night and passed it on to me. This is outrageous. I doubt the Democratic Congressman knows about this, but now it'll be all over the Internet. A common criticism about bloggers I hear from the MSM is that we don't have editors monitoring our work. Ummm...Screen grabs below the fold.
