A spokeswoman for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Neil Abercrombie is saying he misspoke when he alleged that a website that rated his congressional record poorly is a "Republican front organization."

Abercrombie, a former congressman, made the allegation about Congress.org during Monday's televised debate.

Campaign spokeswoman Laurie Au said in a statement that Abercrombie was referring to another website.

She says ratings from both sites were cited in a controversial flyer sent voters by Abercrombie's rival, Democrat Mufi Hannemann.

In a note on Congress.org, Deputy Editor Ryan Teague Beckwith says the rankings were compiled by the site's previous owner. He says the site is not now and never has been a GOP front group.
