DescriptionWikipedia is a community-based product, but Brady’s campaign supporter went in and whacked the page but good, deleting references to gay rights, gun control, stem cell research and other basic policy proposals.

The original page has since been restored. Hat tip: Rebecca Mastey.

*** UPDATE 1 - 1:09 pm *** As if all that wasn’t enough, the Brady campaign person is now claiming that the revisions which undid its attempts at posting blatant propaganda are “vandalism.”

*** UPDATE 2 - 1:36 pm *** Unreal. The Brady campaign backer just changed the Wikipedia page back to propaganda mode.

*** UPDATE 7 - 2:37 pm *** Wikipedia has now locked down the page…
