The misspelling of Betsy Gotbaum’s name on this flier I picked up last night isn’t Yvette Clarke’s fault, technically.

On the bottom of the flier, it says the piece was “Donated by: Omar Boucher.”

According to a person from a rival campaign more knowledgeable about FEC rules than I, that’s an important difference. Since the piece was “donated to” and not “paid for by” the campaign, it means the piece was produced without the campaign’s coordination.

And far be it from me, in any case, to judge others harshly for the odd spelling lapse.

But still… Gobaum?
