Kingston refuses to correct reference to ‘Demoncrats.’

In a statement released over the summer recess, Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA) referred to Democrats as “Demoncrats.” “Demoncrats and Republicans Split Over Government Healthcare,” the statement read. A Kingston spokeswoman called it a mistake and an “obvious typo,” but CQ reports:

Typo? Probably. But apparently not one Kingston’s office cares to correct. A month after its initial posting, the “typo” statement not only is still on Kingston’s House Web site, it’s been moved to a prominent spot on the opening page.

UPDATE: ThinkProgress spoke to Kingston’s spokeswoman who said that a correction would be sent out “right now.”

UPDATE II: The statement has now been corrected.
