From the staff of the Tampa Bay Times

David Jolly: It was staff mistake to scrub my Wikipedia page



Republican U.S. Senate candidate and U.S. Rep. David Jolly tells The Buzz that he had no idea that one of his campaign aides had taken it upon him or herself to edit his Wikepedia page and remove references to his meeting with Scientologists, his background as a lobbyist,and his acceptance of same sex marriage. Buzzfeed reported the changes Tuesday, and we highlighted their report.

"It was a careless staff mistake that I first learned about from the Times," Jolly said. "I stand by my full record, relationships, and life experience, and believe every day that voters and the community are best served by having as much information as possible, regardless of whether it comes from critics or supporters."
