Star Tribune misidentifies Betsy Hodges as St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman's wife

In fairness, there is a bit of a resemblance between Coleman (left) and Hodges.
Yesterday, Minneapolis's newspaper misidentified Minneapolis's mayor.

The Star Tribune's Sunday story on Betsy Hodges's first 100 days in office features a photo of Chris Coleman and his wife Connie with this mistaken caption: "Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges and St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman made their way to dinner Friday after taking a tour of the newly remodeled Northrop Auditorium at the University of Minnesota."

Here's a screengrab of what we're talking about: Mistakes happen, but harder to figure is the fact the error still hadn't been corrected in the online version of the article when we accessed it just before 10 a.m. this morning:

The photo in question was taken down right as we published this.

These Two Progressive Lib White Democrats do look Similar to each other however they don't fit the usual appearance of Lib Prog White women who typically have mustaches and drive Subaru Foresters or a Prius.  The similarities should not be confused in Hodges who can usually be found Pandering to the  Minneapolis Democrat majority Muslim constituency,  wearing the Democrat Garment of repression:  The Hijab.

It's clearly not Betsy as the white woman in this photo isn't wearing a hijab.
