Bangor Daily News retracts a letter to the editor

It appears this was the letter that was retracted. I’ve asked Bangor Daily News editorial page editor Erin Rhoda to confirm it.

UPDATE — Rhoda emails:

You are correct that the letter from Sid Duncan is the one we retracted.

After the BDN received several complaints about the letter, some editors reviewed it and decided it went too far in its sexual innuendo about Rep. Erin Herbig. When we remove something online, we say that we’ve done so in order to be transparent. That’s why we wrote the retraction.
