Seattle Times Correction: Protesters Did Not Throw Brick 30 Stories Up Through Rep.'s Office Window

Well, that’s a relief.
The Seattle Times reported Thursday on another horrible political attack. The Times claimed that liberal democrat Rep. Steve Driehaus had a rock thrown though his office window:

Protesters have been demonstrating at Driehaus’ Ohio home, said Tim Mulvey, a spokesman for the anti-abortion Democrat who joined Stupak in voting for the health bill. A rock was thrown through the window of Driehaus’ Cincinnati office Sunday, and a death threat was phoned in to his Washington office a day later, Mulvey said.

“It’s getting out of hand,” Mulvey said.

As Glenn Reynolds noted… Rep. Driehaus’ office is in the Carew Tower in Cincinnati.

On the 30th floor.

Today, The Seattle Times wrote to say they corrected their story.

This story, published Wednesday, March 24, 2010, was corrected Friday, March 26, 2010. The prior version said a rock was thrown through the window of Ohio Democratic Rep. Steve Driehaus’ Cincinnati office Sunday. Bloomberg News attributed the statement to Driehaus’ spokesman Tim Mulvey. Mulvey said Friday that he was misquoted. A rock was thrown through the window of Hamilton County Democratic Party headquarters in Cincinnati, Mulvey said.
