Congressman Conyers: Typo in HTML on letter to AG Gonzalez
I was unable to link to one of the sites in a letter to AG Gonzalez [in re Request for DoJ investigation into alleged police misconduct in Louisiana].
It is unclear from the discussion whether AG Gonzalez or DoJ Legislative Liaison will independently discover, much less correct this error.
Summary correction: The link at note 6 should include _underscores_, not the current -dashes-.
Error has not yet been discussed
To be clear, this is a different error than the one identified in the following exchanges:

[Admin --- the Attorney General letter link is not working?]

REP. CONYERS, THE LINK TO YOUR LETTER ON THE HORRIFIC ABANDONMENT OF PRISONERS DURING THE FLOOD AND YOUR CALLING FOR INVESTIGATION IS NOT WORKING!

Thanks for drawing my attention to the link. It is now fixed. LenaDavid, is the author you are looking for perhaps RawStory.com's Larisa Alexandrova?
By way of background for others, here is the relevant text from the ConyersBlog:

Blog Entry Title: The President talks about terror while serious shortcomings in domestic security remain
Congressman Conyers' comments, para 5, in re Louisiana Law Enforcement Alleged Abuse in wake of Katrina,
[SNIP. . .]
Also today, we broached the subject of severe shortcomings in domestic security witnessed in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. We have learned that prisoners were left to die in the Orleans Parish prison when corrections officials did not evacuate them. Additionally, emergency medical service workers reported being fired at by sheriffs on the New Orleans Bridge when attempting to flee the flooded city with 200 other people. These incidents clearly demand a thorough investigation. Fifteen Members of Congress joined me today in a letter asking the Attorney General to investigate this alleged misconduct by law enforcement officers and corrections officials in New Orleans.

Request for blogosphere assistance
If you are able to access Congressman Conyers' blog, please post the following information for all to read:
Thank you for making the notifications to ConyersBlog Admin and changes here.
Perhaps Elizabeth Apisson Carmen in the DoJ Legislative Liaison Office already is aware of the typo; or perhaps she could pass this link onto one of her colleagues overseeing the Congressional Correspondence.
DoJ Legislative Liaison: [Elizabeth Apisson Carmen, 202-514-4365 SMO Room: 1138 ]
Given the higher priority issues [in re Judge Roberts] which seemed to have fallen through the cracks, perhaps this one may be a good litmus test for DoJ.
If I may be so bold, I would recommend as a courtesy, a re-send of the original letter to AG Gonzalez with the corrected _URL_.
