Clarification on Yesterday's Guess! That! Party! Post

Some are writing to note that the WaPo article on Walls now does note his political affiliation, and fairly prominently.

But it didn't yesterday when I posted it. I didn't see his party affiliation mentioned (and certainly not so prominently and so early in the article) so I asked my original tipster, Hoke Malokey, to confirm if in his memory the article avoided mentioning Walls' Democratic affiliation. "ABSOLUTELY!!!" he just wrote back.

Further, his original tip included most of the article in the email itself. Here's is that quote:

The mayor of District Heights was arrested early this morning in Washington after allegedly propositioning an undercover officer posing as a male prostitute, police and sources said.

James L. Walls Jr., 30, was arrested at 12:30 a.m. at Sixth and F streets NW and charged with solicitation for lewd and immoral purposes, according to police.

Walls is an ordained Baptist minister, according to the District Heights Web site. He is the former assistant pastor of Greater Light Missionary Baptist Church and is the associate pastor of Forestville New Redeemer Baptist Church.

Walls was elected mayor in May 2006, the youngest person to ever serve as the city's mayor, according to the site. His term runs until 2010.

He is a graduate of Bowie State University and works for the Town of Fairmount Heights as the town administrator, according to the District Heights Web site.

As you can see, no mention of his party affiliation. That has now been added to the article.

So: I'm right, the article did not mention his affiliation, but does now, and I guess the Washington Post should be congratulated for doing its job.
