Inside-baseball-loving columnist George Will has a problem: His wife, Mari Will, is an adviser to GOP presidential candidate Rick Perry.
That doesn’t prevent Will from writing about the GOP presidential primary, but it does require him to disclose his spousal conflict of interest.
Except, apparently, when they appear in the Boston Herald.
Case in point: Will’s piece in Thursday’s Herald, which featured no such disclosure in either the dead-tree edition or the web version.
Hey, George – got a problem with that?
P.S. The hardworking staff just sent this email to George Will:
Dear Mr. Will,
The hardworking staff at Campaign Outsider applauds your stringent disclosure standards regarding your wife’s involvement in Rick Perry’s campaign, but apparently the Boston Herald does not share them.
See here in Campaign Outsider.
Questions? Comments? Bitter Recriminations?
The hardworking staff
We’ll keep you posted.
