After sending out an equivocating statement about Larry Craig's future, she found that someone apparently tinkered with the tag line of her e-mail and made it look like she was running.
And it seems some people fell for it.
The first on the Web to bite was Dave Frazier at BoiseGuardian.com, who said he wasn't entirely sure, but here's the statement anyway.
"Don't believe everything you read on the Internet," Swindell wrote in a second e-mail blast. "Adding words to my personal e-mail is despicable and perhaps illegal."
While we get the BW Legal Team on that one, just know, people: Swindell is sitting this one out.
To which we can only say, bummer. As people who shamelessly vote for quotes, this one would have been a doozy of a campaign.
