Pennsylvania paper misquotes Sen. Pat Toomey in a big way

Pennsylvania's Morning Call attributed a quote to Sen. Pat Toomey that was very different from his actual comment:

A story in Thursday's paper incorrectly attributed the following quote to Sen. Pat Toomey, speaking about former Gov. Mitt Romney: "Don't worry guys, he's OK with me. I vetted him." Toomey actually said: "I have had the privilege to know Gov. Romney for several years. I have studied his record very carefully. I have paid attention to this campaign. I don't think there is any question he governed Massachusetts as a solidly fiscally conservative governor despite a very liberal Legislature."
