This site will discuss bias in Wikipedia's articles about U.S. politics: spin, distortion, errors, lies, and, most importantly, the facts that their articles don't cover. Anyone can submit posts, but see this first. Note that about a dozen more entries need to be added, but that will take a while because the history needs to be looked through.

Antonio Villaraigosa

For several months, the WP entry on Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa ("AV") omitted the key fact that when he was a student at UCLA he was a leader of the extremist group MEChA [1] and he was a campus radical [2]. It also claimed that he was an "attorney" (linking to the /Lawyer article), a statement that is at the least highly misleading. [3] This biased entry has high rankings [4], and may have played some small role in his winning the mayoral seat on May 17, 2005.
