Leave it to Newsweek to indict Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) today in a tweet that accuses him of all kinds of criminal extravagance. Actually, they were, of course, referring to Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, who was indicted along with his blonde wife Tuesday in federal court on charges of accepting gifts and trips from a political donor. The governor has public denied the charges.

We understand that McConnell sounds a lot of McDonnell. But come on, Newsweek, please get it together at least where criminal charges are concerned. This is man’s life we’re talking about. As your bio states, “Get smarter, faster.”

You may want to not listen to the latter part and go slower.

Thankfully they did correct themselves, writing, “Correction: Bob McDonnell ↓ Indicted for an Oscar De La Renta dress and a ride in a Ferrari. DiCaprio tapped for the biopic.”
