Media omission: Caldara says his tweet does not mean the Independence Institute is working on Giron recall

Independence Institute Director Jon Caldara tweeted May 21 that he was “sure” the campaign to recall State Senator Angela Giron needed assistance.

Here’s his tweet:

Jon Caldara ‏@JonCaldara 21 May recall Angela Giron three weeks shy of petition deadline | News – Home … I’m sure they need help #coleg #2A #magban [BigMedia emphasis]

One of the many Twitter-obsessed political reporters in town should have reported whether this meant that the Independence Institute was helping with the petition drive.

“I’ve done petitioning,” Caldara told me.” I know that if they’re trying to get it done, I am certain they need help. It was a tweet all unto my own. I don’t know if they’re doing well or great or whatever. I figure they could use help.”
