Chair Dwight Pelz' reaction at the time was pretty stupid:
Invariably some comment will be posted there, and then attributed by someone as being from “an official State Party publication”. A scandal is then born.
Yeah, right, ok. Whatever Dwight.
Now, you'll be happy to know that the state Dems are blogging.
I guess in the two intervening years, blogging has become a lot less scary to some folks.
