MIAMI, FLA. -- Rick Scott's office had published a front-page spread from the Miami Herald on the governor's Facebook page.
The entry, dated April 9, showed the front page of the Herald, with the headline declaring "New Law Helps Put Floridians back To Work."
There was a bit of a problem, however.
The Herald never ran that story.
In fact, the dateline and the body of the story revealed a story about the rise in violent crime in Guatemala.
And that story appeared in the March edition of the Herald's international edition; March, 2007, to be precise.
The headline was a fake, pasted onto the real paper.
A blogger called the situation to the attention of the Herald.
The Republican Party of Florida pays Harris Media to manage the Facebook page, so the Herald's editor contacted the RPOF and asked them to take care of the issue.
Editor Rick Hirsch said he was steamed by the episode, calling the fake a fraud and a trademark infringement.
A spokesman for the governor's office apologized, calling it a case of "overzealous graphics."
The page was taken down, but not before a screen-shot was taken.
In the Internet, the gaffe lives on.
