Is GOP gubernatorial candidate Bill Brady embarrassed by his record as a legislator? Just this week, Brady's campaign staff scrubbed his own Wikipedia entry because they said it "misrepresented him."

Rebecca Mastey saved both versions here.
The Quinn campaign offered Rich Miller a good response. "If Bill Brady doesn’t think his record is too extreme then why did he erase it….?" For more on that radical agenda, check out our February primer.
