Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley’s campaign recently released a major white paper on how he would reign in financial institutions had a huge mistake: the first source it cited was a satirical news article.

In the white paper, the O’Malley campaign cited an article titled “Eric Holder Takes $77 Million Job With JPMorgan Chase” by the satirical news site, The Daily Currant. Buzzfeed reporter Andrew Kaczynski pointed out the gaff, and that the O’Malley campaign quickly removed The Daily Currant citation.
