This one was a head scratcher…
I’ve had a really bad two years and I haven’t been able to find a decent job. I would really appreciate it if you could delete any reference to me from your site. I’m mentioned in August, 2004. Thank you.
The name Lee Whitnum didn’t exactly ring a bell so I had to use our awesome search function to figure out that Lee Whitnum was John Kerry’s former lover. It turns out that in 2004, when she was enjoying her 15 minutes of fame, I unmasked her little Google Adwords scam to sell her book.
We’ve had other people who asked us to remove old stories and generally I refuse. If it was good enough to publish at the time it’s good enough to stay in the archives. This request was no different – I turned it down. Still I wondered why – so long after the fact – was Lee Whitnum so interested in expunging this bit of history?
Today I got my answer… She’s running for Congress.
