A NorthJersey.com story on a bill to help downtown businesses refers to a supporter, Democrat Gordon Johnson of Englewood, as an "ass".
The story, which was updated at 5:46 p.m. today, abbreviates the title before the lawmaker's name as "Ass."
Here is the paragraph as it appears on the North Jersey Media Group Web site:
"I don't think it will be a big boost, I think it will help," said Ass. Gordon Johnson, D-Englewood, a bill supporter who heads the committee. He said Bergen County is so heavily built up that he believes most towns under 10,000 residents would meet the development criteria."
The Record's style is not to abbreviate assemblyman before a name.
