Dear (new) friends:
Per a request from Joyce McCloy, I am posting below a version of the diary I wrote today for Daily Kos.
Please note that in response, WVWV President Page Gardner posted her first-ever diary to provide documentation that the letter in question was faxed on Friday, April 25 (after the close of business) and the press release in question was sent via blast fax on Monday, April 28 (after the mysterious robocalls had gone out). She also issued another press release to attempt to give more details about her group's registration activities targeted at African Americans.
I believe there are still a huge number of questions to be answered with regard to all this. I maintain no doubt that a WVWV cover up is ongoing. I do not suppose that their actions are nefarious in intent, but I do believe that they have spent more time trying to cover their rear in the left blogosphere than actually rectifying the confusion they caused among voters. I also have serious doubts that the North Carolina press release was actually faxed on Monday morning, April 28. If, indeed, they thought it necessary to create a press release to explain away the confusion they were calling due to the registration deadlines, then why did they shop around a second press release to Colorado the next day? Also, why didn't they mention anything about the robocalls, which are the point of this whole controversy?
