invalid json

For this particular api query to acs5 I receive invalid json. I confirmed this with jslint. I suspect one of the fields aren't escaping properly or something.

http://api.census.gov/data/2012/acs5/profile?get=DP04_0088E,DP02_0100E,DP02_0104E,DP02_0105E,DP02_0106E,DP02_0107E,DP02_0108E,DP02_0109E,DP02_0111E,DP02_0112E,DP02_0113E,DP03_0019E,DP03_0020E,DP03_0021E,DP03_0022E,DP03_0023E,DP03_0024E,DP03_0025E,DP02_0090E,DP03_0004E,DP03_0005E,DP03_0006E&for=place:*&in=state:*&key={key}

    Any updates on progress with this? I just checked with jsonlint again and it's still got an error of:

    Parse error on line 760687:

    ... null, nullnull, nu

    ----------------------^

    Expecting 'STRING', 'NUMBER', 'NULL', 'TRUE', 'FALSE', '{', '['

    It seems to me that one of those null's isn't adding the needed comma. In fact when I used find in my browser and typed "nullnull" I got over 500 results. At the end of those results you can see that two groups of two null columns are not separated by a comma as I would assume they need to be.
