    Who does Carol Darr speak for?

    She may just be speaking for herself and trying to find a voice in this to justify her current position or to somehow get back into government work. I found this bio for her

    Darr has spent most of her career in national politics and government. During the Clinton-Gore Administration, she served as the Acting General Counsel of the U.S. Department of Commerce and as Associate Administrator of the Office of International Affairs in the National Telecommunications and Information Administration. She also chaired the International Telecommunications Working Group of the interagency Information Infrastructure Task Force (IITF), and was part of the U.S. delegation to the G7 Information Society Conference in Brussels.

    In the 1992 election, Darr served as General Counsel to the Democratic National Committee. Previously, she had served as the Chief Counsel to the Dukakis/Bentsen Presidential Committee in 1988 and as the Deputy Counsel to the Carter/Mondale Presidential Committee in 1980. She was an associate at the law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, the Deputy Counsel for Elections at the U.S. Senate Committee for Rules and Elections, and worked as a staff attorney at the Federal Election Commission.

    Darr was the vice president of two high-tech trade associations. She received an M.Litt in History from Christ's College, Cambridge University, and a J.D. and a B.A. from the University of Memphis.
