Ken Herman’s Thursday from the Austin American-Statesman, “Texas gubernatorial front-runner bears an infamous middle name,” is your most blatant anti-Abbott article yet.

Just why do your readers “need to know” that Greg(ory) Abbott’s middle name is Wayne? And please don’t try to excuse this lame smear as “satire.” And the question, “Do we want to run the risk of electing a governor with the middle name Wayne?” is an absurd question, but will cast a shadow in some of the voters’ minds.
