Is "Barraco Barner" The New "Bob Grogran"? @votegrogan

If the 'most interesting accountant in the world' - DuPage County Auditor Bob Grogan - goes on to lose the primary election for the Republican nomination for Illinois Treasurer, at least he'll be able to say:  "Hey!  I'm not as bad as Gemma Worrall."

Who's Gemma Worrall?  She is worse at spelling politico's names than Bob Grogan.  (see Bob Grogan - and other elected officials - spelling woes here in our archives!)

Allow us to introduce her to you:
A British beautician who caused a media storm by spelling Barack Obama's name wrong admitted today to a "ditzy moment". 
Gemma Worrall, 20, who wanted a debate with pals about the Ukraine/Russia crisis, tweeted the message: “Why is our president Barraco Barner getting involved with Russia, scary.” 
But the brunette found herself at the centre of global attention with social media users branding the message a new low for "dumb Britain". 
Within 12 hours Gemma’s comment had been retweeted almost 7,000 times and she had received messages from all over the world calling her "stupid".
Spelling is hard.
