“You son of a gun, Marty!” Joe Biden bellowed over the phone. “You did it!”
But a funny thing happened when prominent Democrats tried to congratulate the winner of Boston’s mayoral race late Tuesday … They called the wrong Martin Walsh, the Boston Globe reports.
How did Biden, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, and her vice chairman, Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak, all have the same number of the wrong Marty Walsh? The Democrats were calling a former aide to Sen. Ted Kennedy who happens to have the same name as the new mayor.
