Davis camp sends inadvertent email to reporters


A spokeswoman for House Minority Leader Paul Davis, the likely Democratic candidate for governor, had an "oops" moment today.

Haley Pollock inadvertently sent an email to reporters that was meant for planners of a pro-school funding press conference scheduled for Monday.

In that email, Pollock advises Game On for Kansas Schools on how to write a press release.

"The release should be a mini version of the press conference though. We basically want to write the story that we want to appear in the paper and include the quote we want to appear in the paper from each speaker," she wrote. "That way even if a reporter can't attend, they still have everything they need to write the story."

Pollock sent a follow-up email to reporters noting the accidental email and apologizing for any confusion.

Well that automatically disqualifies Davis from being governor :).

Of course I've never sent an inadvertent email.

I guess he is lucky it did not constitute a Felony.

Slow news day. An email that explains the purpose of a press release gets...released.

I'm just going to have to blame it on Obama.

I'm sure the GOP-led Legislature will be launching a full investigation into Davis' attempts to manipulate the media. LOL.
