It was just a "big misunderstanding".
"On Tuesday, the university said that there had been a misunderstanding about the status of the collection.
The unidentified donor of the records notified the university about the absence of a signed ownership agreement last week.
The donor's only concerns regarding the collection are due to personal information that could include names, confidential salary information and even Social Security numbers, a university spokesman said at the time."
The "big misunderstanding" undoubtedly gave the partisans enough time to scrub the material clean of the truth about the Obama/Ayers relationship.
It's to be expected, however.
This sort of stunt is typical of what we've come to expect from Dem/Lefty/"Progressive" sources, who never fail to find a half-truth or a misrepresentation that can't cover up their dishonesty.
It's just the national version of the "business as usual" theme that is undermining the principles of good government here locally.
