In Friday’s paper in the story regarding the Republican meeting last week, Rep. John Payton told The Sun Times that he did not specifically share information to be read at the meeting as stated in our article. He told The Sun Times that yes, he had shared all that information with Jacque Martin and it was what he had said, “in the well,” but that he had not asked Martin specifically to speak on his behalf at the meeting. He did say he didn’t mind if she shared the information, it was how he felt and what he said.

The Sun Times apologizes for any confusion this may have caused.
