It was announced recently that yet another Republican is throwing himself into the 2012 Republican gubernatorial primary. This time the announcer is another former Billings area state legislator, Corey Stapleton.
Stapleton has something else in common with the first Republican to express his interest in the race. A poorly-spelled Web 2.o item was launched in conjunction with the announcement, this time in the form of Stapleton’s Wikipedia page.
Corey Stapleton (born September 17, 1967) is a Republican and former State Senator of 8 years. He is currently running for the Governor office [sic] in Montana.
The previous example of the above phenomenon was the Facebook page of former state legislator Ken Miller, which contained this mistake:
We need a governor in Montana that stands with the Arizona governor on illeagal immagration [sic] not the one we have now that supports President Obama.
On a side note, the AP also reported that
Stapleton is the first noteworthy name to enter what is expected to be a crowded race.
Don’t tell that to Miller. Ouch.
