KTVI’s Betsey Bruce just spanked Politico hard with some actual journalism in a report that showed the much-disputed whereabouts of the coffin: Bill Hennessy’s garage.

As KMOV reported:

Sara Howard, a spokesperson for Congress Russ Carnahan, confirmed tonight that a coffin was left on the front lawn of the Carnahan’s home residence in the St. Louis area.

[…]

Howard says there was a Tea Party protest in front the congressman’s office earlier in the day on Wednesday and a coffin was there.  So it’s assumed that the protest moved to Carnahan’s house and the coffin stayed.

When can we expect a statement of apology from Sara Howard and Russ Carnahan?
