I'm not just adding a comment at the bottom of zizis post, but I do hope you'll read the original. zizi makes good points about privacy, rogue Democrats, and more.
BUT OFA IS A ZOMBIE
Oh, I know it is still thrashing about, trying to influence national policy, to keep Obama supporters active. But it essentially "belongs" to a President who is not running for re-election. And the function of activating Democrats can be fulfilled by our Party. Long-term, the Party is here "forever," and OFA isn't.
I ask you this: Who will you support for President in 2016?I call again for the managers of OFA to intelligently merge what you safely and legally can into the Democratic Party. Right now the President's appointees control the Party.
Not Barack Obama.
You'll devote your time and money to your favorite's nomination, then hopefully to the DEMOCRATIC PARTY'S NOMINEE.
As the next national campaign gears up, you may remember OFA with fond memories, but when you're logged into PayPal or ActBlue, it will be to send money to your preferred candidate, not the retiring President's election organization.
As to the "Project Narwhal" voter database / data mine, clearly the Repigs will learn from Romney's Orca Whale-Fail and do better in 2016.
"Narwhal" was superb. Let's not force the 2016 Democratic Nominee to re-invent it.
Why OFA cannot just hand over data to Dem Candidates:FACTS about the Obama "Database"
