Christy Clark's Wikipedia entry undergoes frequent edits

      Elections are fought in many venues.

      There's the so-called air war, which is a term to describe the battle between political parties in the media.

      Then there's the ground game, which takes place in constituencies with volunteers and candidates knocking on doors and distributing campaign materials.

      But there's also a fight in cyberspace.

      B.C. Liberal Leader Christy Clark's Wikipedia entry, for instance, has undergone many more edits this month than her main rivals, John Horgan and Andrew Weaver.

      Many of the edits on Clark's profile were performed by "adjuster", who is listed as a "blocked user".

      The same user has added links and made adjustments to the Wikipedia profile of Rich Coleman.

      This may not mean a great deal in the general scheme of things. But the long list of edits to Clark's entry (below) offers a window into an aspect of political campaigning that often goes under the radar screen.
