Wikipedia blocks Congress

Following wholescale rewriting of bios on Wikipedia by suspected staffers in the US Congress, Wiki have decided to block IP ranges.

Congressional staffers have made more than 1,000 changes to entries in the online encyclopedia Wikipedia in the past six months, an investigation by the Lowell Sun has found. The Massachusetts newspaper highlighted changes made by staffers for U.S. Rep Marty Meehan, D-Mass., including the removal of a mention of his broken term-limits pledge and information about the size of his campaign war chest.
