Lawmaker Erased Family from His Biography

"After Bill Young died Oct. 18 at 82, he was given a funeral befitting a legend. Speakers -- including House Speaker John Boehner and high-ranking military officials -- praised his skills at crafting legislation and advocating for his constituents," the Tampa Bay Times reports.

"There was a second theme amid the accolades: Bill Young, family man."

"A lengthy photo montage showed the congressman with the three sons (one adopted) and eight grandchildren who resulted from his marriage to Beverly. But no one mentioned the three children, seven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren from his marriage to the former Marian Ford. Nor were any of those family members included in the photo presentation."
