The Associated Press has fired veteran Virginia reporter Bob Lewis and his editor after Lewis published an erroneous story alleging Terry McAuliffe was linked to a scam.

Lewis has earlier in October filed a story misidentifying McAuliffe as a person who lied to federal investigators in a Rhode Island-based probe.

Lewis is a highly-respected journalist who has worked in Richmond for two decades.
