Somebody in Congress did something dishonest? Say it isn't so!
In 2006, Wikipedia discovered that the entries to several prominent U.S. politicians including Minnesota Senator Norm Coleman, California Senator Dianne Feinstein and Iowa Senator Tom Harkin had been altered, apparently from computers within the Capitol. Coleman's staff admitted that it had removed the statement that the Senator had voted with President Bush 98% of the time in 2003, while Harkin's aids said that they'd erased a story about the time he falsely claimed to have flown combat missions in North Vietnam. Joe Biden's representatives also edited his page to remove references to accusations of alleged plagiarism.
Other Congressmen found themselves unwitting victims of Wikipedia harassment. Republican Senator Tom Coburn, of Oklahoma had his page edited to include the false statement that he'd been officially voted "most annoying senator."
