  •  please ask about that NC press release (3+ / 0-)

    They are touting the fact that along with a highly dubious letter they supposedly sent out last week to the NC Board of Elections (which the Board of Elections attorney says they have yet to receive), they ALSO supposedly sent out a press release to NC media.  The Institute for Southern Studies posted a .pdf of this press release.

    Odd, though, that it is undated.  When did they send this press release, which conveniently answers all the questions about the fact that these mailings are being sent post-deadline but pre-primary?  If it was Tuesday or later - i.e. AFTER the News & Observer first broke this story, then it's clearly an after-the-fact CYA effort - i.e., they're intentionally misleading us.  If it was Monday or before, why didn't they just immediately respond with the press release showing that they'd already answered these questions?  Also, who did they send this press release to in the North Carolina media, and why did NO outlet pick it up, particularly given the high attention focused on issues of voter registration?

      From the NC Attorney General's web site: AG Cooper stops illegal calls to voters as primary nears.

      Telemarketing calls that led North Carolina residents to question whether they could vote have stopped, but voters should question mailings scheduled to arrive soon, Attorney General Roy Cooper said Wednesday.

      On Wednesday, Cooper and his consumer protection team demanded that the organization Women’s Voices Women Vote stop breaking state law with prerecorded calls to North Carolina residents. The organization said Wednesday the calls would stop.
