Tempest, Meet Teapot

There were rumors swirling around this morning that Congresswoman Mary Fallin had contributed to Governor Brad Henry back in 2003, as reported by the Muskogee Politico, and within a few short hours, clarification came from the Fallin campaign. 

Apparently, the contribution was not a campaign contribution, but rather money spent on the Inaugural Ball.  One could easily argue the efficacy of such an investment, but that's a story for another time.

The advantages of the Internet are amazing - we can get information quickly and distribute it effectively.  Unfortunately, sometimes stories get out there that are misunderstood and need clarification.

Kudos to the Muskogee Politico for quickly reporting the story and it's aggregate result before too many Brogdonites gathered up pitchforks and stormed the Fallin Congressional Office.
