What the Helene

The Russian Twitter Bots that post the fakenews stories on the Lake County Gazette have gone haywire. The Lake County Gazette posted an uncomplimentary story about their favorite-son State Rep, Helene Walsh:
In less than a month on the job, state Rep. Helene Miller Walsh (R-Mundelein) has served up plenty of campaign material to her Democratic opponent Mary Edly-Allen of Libertyville.

But don't try to click the link above to the Lake County Gazette. This Lake County Gazette story that criticizes Helene Walsh for scrubbing her Facebook, has been -- wait for it -- scrubbed from the Lake County Gazette:
Operatives are asked to make up their own joke here.
