A lot of candidates are using Twitter to connect with voters.But that led to an embarrassing mistake for the Meg Whitman campaign.

Whitman's spokeswoman Tweeted about an endorsement from the Deputy Sheriffs' Association of San Diego County and included a link to more information.

Turns out, there was one wrong letter in the link that led to a video on YouTube of a cross-dressing bass player from Korea.

The Tweet remained up for nearly 24 hours.

For the record, no word on whether the cross-dressing bassist has endorsed anyone in the governor's race.
