ANOTHER CHANCE TO PLAY name that party! “ABC 7 has learned the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority have charged Representative Robert Filner of California with assault and battery following an incident at Dulles International Airport Sunday night.”

UPDATE: Reader Hastings Walton visited Filner’s website, which informs us that “Bob is a fearless fighter.” I guess so.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Reader Shelby Clark emails: “The lead-in sentence to the ABC 7 report now reads ‘…Democratic Representative Robert Filner…'” The mystery has been solved!

MORE: Another alert reader emails that Filner’s party affiliation has moved down to the second paragraph. The news is a living thing!
