The erroneous, NSFW video originally linked to in the Minnesota DFL press release.

Next time, Minnesota's Democratic Party says, it will closely check its Internet links before sending news releases after it had to recall a statement criticizing Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty because it mistakenly linked to a profane YouTube video of an elderly Chinese woman repeating obscenities.

Andrew O'Leary, executive director of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, as the Democratic Party is known in Minnesota, says the link was provided by an outside researcher.

He says the party did not check the link before sending the release to the news media. O'Leary says the party "obviously made a mistake."

The release challenged Pawlenty, a potential 2012 presidential candidate, for criticizing President Obama at a Republican National Committee meeting. It's unclear if Pawlenty did so while cursing in a Chinese accent.

Here is the video the actually may have meant to send out:
