Keith Olbermann Credits the Source Wrong in Peter Kinder Saga


Missouri's Lt. Governor Peter Kinder made Keith Olbermann's Worst Person's List last night for his journeys to a St. Louis bar known for its "pantsless parties."

But the liberal television-show host got the source wrong yesterday when he credited the Post-Dispatch for breaking the story. Err wrong, Keith.

Yes, the Post-Dispatch did break the story on Kinder spending thousands of dollars of taxpayer money on swank hotels, but it's the Riverfront Times that first published the photo of Missouri's lieutenant governor posing with the former nudy mag model at Verlin's.

Now Riverfront Times and reporter/editor Sarah Fenske has even more scoop on Kinder's relationship with Tammy Chapman. The 1992 Penthouse Pet of the month says she was working at a Sauget strip club when Kinder -- then a state senator -- first began harassing her.

Update: Olbermann realizes the errors of his ways and tweets an apology.
