Re: The Latest on Those Calls
As the drumbeat of prying bloggers continues to suggest there is something odd about the number of Romney supporters and indeed staffers who received the calls (the latter did not identify themselves as such when they spoke to reporters) I asked Kevin Madden what was up. He responded: “There were a number of folks who notified the campaign about these calls when they first occurred who are affiliated with the campaign as grassroots organizers. When media inquiries came in asking to talk to folks who received the calls, and whether they were available the describe them, we did provide the names of supporters who were willing to talk to reporters and they were identified as such. Obviously, it would be hard for us to identify people who received calls who are not supporters, since they are unlikely to notify us. Also, we’ve also made sure to identify other individuals who are not affiliated with the campaign in any way for other media inquiries.” Why didn’t the Romney campaign identify them as staffers and why didn’t these people identify themselves as such to reporters? “These are not full-time[staffers]. Supporters at the grassroots level who organize other supporters in the field are also provided a stipend and are listed on FEC disclosures as GOTV consultants. I’m not aware of the extent of their conversations with reporters.” Until the NH attorney general completes the investigation or someone involved directly with the calls steps forward there will be more speculation as the suspicious minded continue to look for the culprit.
