Yesterday, James Taranto reported on the failure of the media to identify the party affiliation of a thoroughly despicable lawmaker. This, of course, is standard operating procedure when a Democrat is the villain. So what happens when a Republican strays from the straight and narrow…? Mr. Taranto reports today:
"A Republican activist from Aurora who pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor in connection with a larger fraud prosecution was sentenced Monday to a year's probation and a $3,450 fine," reports the Denver Post. That's the lead sentence. The headline is "GOP Activist Receives Probation in Tax Case."
This is an easy one, so we'll give you two guesses as to the subject's party.
