    Couldn't have said it worse myself

    I received an e-mail from The News Service of Florida a little earlier today:

    "GAETZ: ELECTIONS WILL BE FIXED
    Senate President Don Gaetz forcefully pledged that the Legislature will do something to avoid election embarrassment in two years, while also promising to reach out to Democrats and usher in a new era of more ethical conduct as he leads the Senate the next two years."

    A few minutes later they realized how poorly worded the headline was and sent this follow-up e-mail:

    "Subscribers:
    As many of you have noted, a headline on a story this morning had an unintended double entendre that could shed an unfavorable light on Senate President Don Gaetz.

    The headline "Gaetz: Elections Will be Fixed" may go down in history as one of the worst-chosen ways to say what we meant, which was that Gaetz is pledging to improve the election system.

    The News Service regrets the oversight."

    Freudian slip?

    I can't wait to show it to my wife. She works for the Florida Secretary of State in the Division of Elections.

    Isn't it true that some Florida counties had such successful turnouts that 150% of the eligible voters voted?
