GOP Primary: Wikipedia Edits Tell Story Of GOP Presidential Primary Candidates

Posted: Updated:

The long, winding road of the GOP primary has given birth to a number of stories that have crafted the image and public records of the various candidates. A look at the Wikipedia edit history of the candidates' pages -- and of former contender Rick Santorum -- reflects the contentious nature of many of the issues that have arisen over the course of the campaign. From frequent edits of the words "dog" and "church" under Mitt Romney's page to large-scale shifting of the passages on Ron Paul's profile containing the words "newsletters" and "racist," the stories that various members of the Wikipedia community want to highlight -- or perhaps bury -- receive a life of their own.
