Earlier today, I wrote that embattled New Jersey governor Jon Corzine was going to regret this Tweet:
RT @PolticalCouncil Jon Corzine’s financial experience helped PREVENT this economic downturn. He is working to keep NJ working.
Apparently I was more right than I knew, because I was told the link above didn’t work any longer; they had deleted the Tweet, attempting to airbrush it from history.
A bit dishonest, I think. Particularly considering that the ill-conceived brag still shows up in a search on TweetDeck:
As I wrote below, “Come on, Governor. Be a man. Don’t try to airbrush history. You (or more likely, a staffer) put out a message that you prevented the economic downturn, and if you regret that laughable statement, just come out and say, ‘I (or we) messed up. We’re sorry. Never mind.’ But don’t try to pretend it didn’t happen.”
