Check Your Spelling, People

Here's Illinois Green Party gubernatorial candidate Rich Whitney.

He recently discovered that on voting machines in over two dozen Chicago wards, including many with African-American voters, his name has been misspelled as "Rich Whitey." Apparently they can't change the way his name is spelled for voting purposes between now and election day, so that's how it'll have to be.

If the world keeps serving up typos of this quality, we're going to have to make typo-blogging a regular feature around here.

I don't know anything about Mr. Whitney but if he happens to be rich, it would be funny! If candidates were listed with a one line description from an uninvolved person, it would be helpful to the voter.
