http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Doolittle was around 85% knocking
copy.  I removed this and put a strongly worded comment on Talk about
undue weight and WP:LIVING.  I don't give a rat's ass if there is a
close-fought election in process, if anything that is the worst
conceivable reason for bloating an article with guilt-by-association
and innuendo.

Needless to say there is an edit war.  Of course these facts are
cited; but do we really need to know that he took campaign
contributions from some guy and did not give them away like the other
people who took the guy's money?  Is that *honestly* the business of a
neutral encyclopaedia article?

We are surely not far from the day when a politician sues the project
for causing him to lose a knife-edge election.  Or is that
