MSNBC Permanently Retires Ray LaHood

In the race to report the passing of Ray Hutchison, the late husband of former Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Texas, MSNBC made one fatal mistake: They pictured the wrong man dead.  

Huffington Post scribe Jennifer Bendery immediately noticed that the commemorative image used during the Ronan Farrow gabfest was not of the recently deceased Lone Star state attorney, but of ex-Rep.-cum-ex-Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood.  



According to the Dallas Morning News , Ray Hutchison died of heart problems.  

LaHood, meanwhile, remains actively involved in transportation issues as co-chairman of Building America’s Future .
