Those in our comments section who questioned whether U.S. Rep. Russ Carnahan really was firing a pistol in a photo at the police academy were right on target.Good for Wagman! A lesser journalist would've left this mess to the ombudsman to mop up or blamed the "layers of editors and fact checkers."
I, however, was not.
Unfortunately, Wagman still hasn't offered an explanation for the three holes in the target. Who shoots three bullets? I mean, I've heard of a double tap, but I've never heard of a triple tap. The target pictured at right was found in a dumpster behind the Police Academy (or, perhaps, Photoshopped). It's believed to be the work of Congressman Carnahan because it bears his signature campaign message: "I <heart> PELOSI" They don't call him Rubberstamp Russ for nothing!
