Massachusetts Super PAC Misspells State’s Name

by InvestorPlace Staff | June 25, 2012 11:32 am

[1]A super PAC aimed at supporting Republican congressional challengers in Massachusetts had to file an amended Federal Election Commission report earlier this month to fix a spelling error — they misspelled the state in the group’s name[2].

Massachusetts Forward, Inc., originally created in May, first spelled Massachusetts with one “T” and five “S’s”. The amended report to fix the typo was filed on June 12.

With the agreement between Republican Senator Scott Brown and Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren not to accept outside spending on the race, Massachusetts Forward, Inc. is likely targeting the most competitive congressional race in Massachusetts this year, between Democratic Rep. John Tierney and GOP opponent Richard Tisei.

For their sakes, let’s hope they have a proofreader available to edit their advertising.
