A member of the US Senate was caught this week trying to make a rather conspicuous edit to Edward Snowden’s Wikipedia page .
In a move sure to grind the gears of conspiracy theorists everywhere, a member of the US Senate recently edited Snowden’s Wikipedia page from describing him as a ‘dissident’ to a traitor, according to the entry’s changelog. The user’s IP address was quickly traced back to the US Senate.
It is not clear if the person is an active Senator, a staffer or an intern, but the change certainly came from the Senate.
