There is little more embarrassing than endorsing something you shouldn't have because you didn't read closely enough. This is the case of a Virginia lawmaker who has had to apologize to her constituents. She co-sponsored an abortion bill that she now says she shouldn't have backed. Her claim is that she failed to examine it and she didn't know some of the provisions that make it objectionable. It's egg on her face and a gift to her opponents. One can ask what kind of legislator she is that she co-sponsors legislation that she hasn't analyzed. In time she might overcome this PR disaster but some of her voters will remember and candidates for her job will remind them.
