News flash: Wikipedia isn't always correct.
The online encyclopedia's penchant for posting inaccuracies isn't helping U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Weston, whose parents are listed on Wikipedia as being two fallen public figures in Broward.
"She is the daughter of former Broward Commissioner Diana Wasserman-Rubin, and her stepfather is Richard Rubin," the entry about the congresswoman reads.
Wasserman-Rubin resigned from the Broward County Commission in 2010 and is facing trial on public corruption related charges, and Rubin, a former grants writer for Southwest Ranches, is serving a 10- month federal prison sentence for tax evasion.
Wasserman Schultz has a national profile as head of the Democratic National Committee, so conservative bloggers took the faux familial tie and ran with it.
Some of the headlines:
