Mike Haridopolos' print errors becoming a campaign issue

Today's Associated Press article on the "unusual" deal that Senate President Mike Haridopolos got to publish a book describes it as thin on details and, in one part, wrong on facts when it comes to the name of Terri Schiavo, the comatose women whose plight was at the center of a nationally watched euthanasia case. Haridopolos misspelled her name.

By itself, that's no biggie. But the Florida Democratic Party played it up in an email that described the AP story as a must-read.

The story also notes the multiple errors that Haridopolos committed on his financial disclosure forms from 2004 to 2008. 

Expect Haridopolos' mistakes and attention to detail to become a theme of the Democrats and incumbent U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, whom the Republican state senator seeks to unseat

Haridopolos has described those errors as "embarrassing." What's he say of the Schiavo error? We'll have to find out later. He didn't return AP calls for comment.

What other errors could the 152-page book, written for Brevard Community College, have? That's tough to say. Brevard Community College refuses to release it on the internet (as of now) and cites a Gray Robinson law firm letter that declares the book to be not a public record. The yet-to-be published book can only be read at its Cocoa campus.

Here's the AP story

Amusing that you draw attention to a typo someone else made when you, like many of your colleagues, commit obvious spelling and grammar errors with Senator Haridopolos's name. Errors like, well, forgetting the "s" after the apostrophe in your post title. Awkward....

What???

Wait a minute... it was paid for with "public funds aka TAXPAYER money" but it is not a "public record"?
