FOX News has followed its recent blunder of misidentifying Republican Mark Foley as a Democrat by doing the same with Senate hopeful Sheldon Whitehouse, showing him as a Republican when he is in fact the Democratic candidate for US Senate from Rhode Island.

The error was made on Saturday's episode of Beltway Boys and repeated throughout the weekend.

In November's general election, Whitehouse faces moderate Republican incumbent Lincoln Chafee, whom FOX likewise misidentified as a Democrat.
